Serial killer ‘Cyanide Mohan’ awarded life imprisonment for 19th murder

Serial killer known as ‘Cyanide Mohan’, was on Monday, sentenced to life imprisonment by a Mangaluru court for the murder of a 23-year-old woman from Kerala in 2006. A fine of Rs 25,000 was also slapped on him. This is the 19th of the 20 murder cases against him.
The sentence was announced by the sixth additional district and sessions court judge Sayeedunnisa who said that the sentence will commence once Mohan serves the sentence in other cases.  
Mohan met the woman from Kasaragod district of Kerala in 2005 while she was on her way to work at a unit of CAMPCO in Mangaluru. Soon they developed a friendship and he proposed marriage to her. On January 3, 2006, he took her to Mysuru and stayed in a lodge and the following morning asked her to remove all her ornaments. The two then headed to the Karnataka State Road Transport Corporation bus stand where he asked her to go to the washroom consume a contraceptive pill which was laced with cyanide. The woman collapsed and was pronounced ‘brought dead’ by the hospital.
Mohan was arrested from Bantwal in 2009 after which he admitted to killing 20 women. The serial killer got his name ‘Cyanide Mohan’ as he would kill his female friends using the deadly poison after raping them. He was earlier awarded a death sentence in five cases and life imprisonment in three other cases. Two of his death penalties were later commuted to life imprisonment.
