- Ranchi: A local court on Monday sent a 30-year-old Gumla native to the gallows for the rape and murder of an eight-year-old girl in the state capital four years ago.
This is the second time a court in Jharkhand has awarded capital punishment for rape and murder under the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (Pocso) Act, said counsel Ashok Kumar Roy who argued the case on behalf of the prosecution.
2 In 2016, a Giridih district court had similarly awarded a death sentence to one Mathura Mahto for the rape and murder of a minor girl.
3 A Pakistani court Saturday handed four death sentences to a man charged with raping and murdering a six-year-old girl,
4 Rapists who attack girls under the age 12 could be handed death sentences if a bill passed in one Indian state becomes law.
5 Politicians in Madhya Pradesh voted through the legislation earlier this week. It will now be sent for approval or dismissal by the country's central government and Prime minister Narendra Modi.
6 There has been a past judgment in the Supreme Court Women Lawyers Association (SCWLA) vs. Union of India and Another that crimes against girl children are “rampant for unfathomable reasons and it is the obligation of the law and law-makers to cultivate respect for the children and especially the girl children who are treated with such barbarity and savageness.”
The court expressed its anguish at such crimes, which were nothing but “horrendous and repulsive.”
It said a ''child is a glorious gift to mankind, cannot conceive of any kind of carnal desire in man”, and reiterated its hope that Parliament would respond to the agony of society and work towards prescribing a “higher punishment.”
“Once she becomes a victim of such a crime, there is disastrous effect on her mind. The mental agony lasts long. Sorrow and fear haunt forever. There is need to take steps for stopping this kind of child abuse.” the Bench referred to the earlier judgment.
