Karnataka: Rapist, killer's mercy plea rejected
Umesh Reddy has committed crimes in Mysore, Pune, Mumbai, Ahmedabad, Baroda, Hubli and Bangalore.

Bangalore: The Karnataka Cabinet on Monday rejected serial killer Umesh Reddy's mercy plea. Reddy was convicted and sentenced to death by a Fast Track Court in 2006 for the rape and murder of Jayshree Maradi Subbaiah.

Reddy's death sentence was upheld in 2007 by a Bangalore High Court division bench for the 1998 case of rape and murder of Jayshree, a widow. The Supreme Court had on February 1, 2011 upheld his death penalty.

Reddy is a former police constable from Hiriyur taluk, in Chitradurga of Karnataka. He had raped Jayshree on February 28, 1998 in Peenya police limits.

Reddy who has committed crimes in Mysore, Pune, Mumbai, Ahmedabad, Baroda, Hubli and Bangalore, has 20 cases against him. His mother had petitioned President Pratibha Patil for clemency under Article 72 of the Constitution.
