The killer of Southampton student Hannah Foster should never be freed from prison,her parents claimed last night
The 41-year-old was yeaterday jailed for a minimum of 24 years for the murder of 17-year-old Hannah and today spends the first full day of that sentence behind bars.
But Hannah's parents Hannah and Hilary say that's not enough and believe Kohli should spend the rest of his life locked up.
Speaking after the six week trial at Winchester Crown Court Trevor said: “We have done everything we can in pursuit of justice for Hannah.
"However, we can not accept and never will be able to accept, how a complete stranger can abduct, rape and murder your teenager daughter, still a child in the eyes of the law, and yet not end his
days in prison.
Watch Trevor Foster's statement on Kohli's jail sentence
“Kohli will in all probability walk out of jail after serving his recommended minimum sentence and resume his life in the outside world. This man callously deprived Hannah of her primary human
right, the right to life.
“This sentence gives him the right to a second chance at life, a second chance he never gave Hannah. To see Kohli’s life valued in this way when he showed such utter disregard for Hannah’s is
hurtful beyond measure. The punishment should fit the crime. In this case it certainly did not.”
