Criminal Court, on Monday, passed capital punishment on the two individuals convicted of murdering Abdul Muheeth (Bobby)..

The state charged Mohamed Maimoon from Naifaru, Lhaviyani Atoll, Muhujath Ahmed Nasih from Gahdhoo, Gaafu Dhaalu Atoll and Ali Mushaffau from Maradhoo, Seenu Atoll over Muheeth's murder.

However, Mushaffau was later acquitted of his charges.

The two perpetrators were found guilty of murdering Muheeth in a narrow street in front of the Ministry of Finance in February 2012.

The Juvenile Court also charged an additional three individuals over Muheeth's murder. The court sentenced two of them to capital punishment. The High Court upheld the lower court's verdict on the matter.
