When sessions court judge S B Vastramutt, known for his speedy judgments, convicted a man within 13 days of crime, people were amazed to know that this time a three-year-old boy had played a crucial role in fast-tracking the case. “The child’s statement played a crucial role in the case. The 36 other witnesses abided by their statements during the trial,” Chitradurga SP Shrinath Joshi said. The convict, 35-year-old labourer Sridhar, killed his wife Sakamma (31) on suspicion of infidelity at their house in Challakere taluk’s Baggalurangavvanahalli village on June 27. At the time of the incident, the couple’s year-old child was asleep, while their three-year-old son witnessed the crime.
