The division bench of Justice T Raja and Justice B Pugalendhi observed, “Since the deceased woman became pregnant following the illegal affair with the appellant, there was a strong motive for the appellant to murder the woman. There is a recovery of ear and nose studs from the appellant’s house and the medical evidence shows that she suffered a homicidal death proves the case of the prosecution.” The prosecution had proved that Natarajan, a mason, had murdered the woman who was working as a coolie under him in Trichy. The two were in an intimate relationship and after becoming pregnant she had demanded they get married. As Natarajan was already married and has children, he murdered the woman and buried her in 2006. When the family members started searching for the deceased woman eight days after she went missing, Natarajan voluntarily confessed about the murder after which a case was registered at the Thuvakudi police station and he was arrested. The III additional district and sessions court at Trichy convicted and sentenced him to undergo life imprisonment on November 14, 2016. Natarajan filed an appeal before the Madurai bench in 2018. Since the incriminating circumstances forms a complete chain without any missing links, unerringly proceeding towards the only conclusion that the convict had murdered the woman, the judges confirmed the conviction and sentence by the lower court and dismissed the appeal.Justice T Raja and Justice B Pugalendhi observed, “Since the deceased woman became pregnant following the illegal affair with the appellant, there was a strong motive for the appellant to murder the woman.
