‘I have considered the age, character and antecedents of the convicts. In my view, there is no adequate or special reason to impose lesser sentence than the minimum sentence of ten years as provided.

‘Accordingly, sentence of 10 years rigorous imprisonment is imposed on each of the three convicts under the provisions of the IPC,’ the judge said, also imposing an additional fine of Rs 15,500 on Vijay and Rs 10,000 each on Anil and Vinay.

Accused Vijay met the girl on 15 June 2010, when she was going to market to call her mother, said the prosecution adding he accosted the girl, forcibly caught her and took her to a vacant room where he raped her.
