>When Aparajita Moon Moon Bose walked into jail to serve a life term for conspiring to kill her husband Kunal, her two sons were aged barely two and five.

Thirteen years later, the Calcutta high court on Wednesday acquitted her of all charges, holding the lower court judgment “full of mistakes”, reports Makkal Osai.

Moon Moon’s sons are now in their teens, living with her mother-in-law, Anuradha, whose complaint had triggered the chain of events that led to her arrest and conviction by a trial court.

Kunal was murdered on May 2000 and thrown into a ditch.
