Bhopal: A special court here has awarded life term to six people for raping a 12-year-old girl who later became pregnant.
The court specifically mentioned that the arrested persons will remain behind the bars for their whole life. Special judge Savita Dube awarded the punishment on March 12 and also imposed a total fine of Rs 1.20 lakh on the six accused. The DNA report conclusively established that one of the accused was the biological father of the aborted foetus of the girl, a release issued by police headquarters said on Wednesday.
A member of NGO Railway Childline Service spotted the girl begging at a railway station, following which a police officer questioned her and later handed her over to a women care institution.
