Haryana’s Dec 16: Judge asks how many times Nirbhaya would die

Seven persons, convicted for raping and killing a 28-year-old mentally-challenged Nepalese woman, were on Monday sentenced to death by a court, with the Judge asking “how many times Nirbhaya would die” and such crimes should be met with a “very heavy hand”.

The trial was completed within ten months after hogging headlines due to the brutality of the crime.

The capital punishment awarded by a lower court is subject to the confirmation of High Court.

Additional District and Sessions Judge Seema Singhal, who had convicted all the seven accused in the case last week, pronounced the quantum of punishment on Monday.

Interestingly, apart from the seven convicts, one juvenile was also involved in the crime and is facing trial before Juvenile Justice Board.

The woman was brutally raped and murdered and her body dumped in a field along the Rohtak-Hisar highway near Bahu Akbarpur village of Rohtak in February this year.

The post-mortem examination report of the woman mentioned several injuries on her private parts, doctors of PGIMS had said, adding that stones and blades were also found in her body.
