In the judg­ment passed by the Phuentshol­ing Dungkhag Court on Mon­day, four men were sen­tenced to prison terms rang­ing from one month to 14 years and 11 months for vol­un­tary man­slaugh­ter of a 25-year-old man.

Fol­low­ing an ar­gu­ment, the main con­vict, a 28-year-old man from Trashigang, stabbed the de­ceased to death in Jan­uary this year in Phuentshol­ing. The main con­vict was sen­tenced to 14 years and 11 months im­pris­on­ment. The court has also asked the con­vict to pay a com­pen­sa­tion of about Nu 500,000 to the fa­ther of the de­ceased. For fail­ing to re­port the crime, the court sen­tenced the other three men to prison; how­ever, they can pay Thrimthue in lieu of prison term.
