Gangster-turned-politician Arun Gawli, now an MLA from Mumbai, has been sentenced to life imprisonment for his role in the murder of Shiv Sena politician Kamlakar Jamsandekar four years ago.
Gawli had been convicted last week along with 10 others. Mr Jamsandekar was shot dead in March 2008 at his home in suburban Ghatkopar. As per the chargesheet, a sum of Rs. 30 lakh was paid to the Gawli gang for eliminating the Sena corporator over a land dispute.
