<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>Advocate Ujjwal Nikam on Saturday successfully added one more feather to his cap after the Sessions court of Ahmednagar held the three men arrested in the rape and murder of a 14-year-old girl in Kopardi village of Ahmednagar guilty.Till date, Nikam has been successful in attracting as many as 635 life imprisonments and 41 death penalties for accused in his career as a special public prosecutor.While speaking about the matter, Nikam said that it was a very tough case as there was no direct evidence in the case, and was entirely based on circumstantial evidence.”The prosecution was successful in proving the chain of circumstances which resulted in the conviction of the accused,” Nikam said.Initially, the police had not slapped the accused with conspiracy charges. It was the prosecution who made a plea to include the charges in the court and was successful in proving it along with other charges.Nikam said that the matter was closely followed by people across strata. However, he still managed not to distract himself and was successful in completing the trial in five months.”The evidence provided by the police was also very strong. There was a disclosure about the statement of the deceased which helped the case. There were total 31 witnesses in the case, who were examined by the prosecution and all supported the case,” said Nikam.
