Death penalty for minor's rape, killing in nine-day trial
Patna, Feb 2 (IANS) Within nine days of a crime, a Bihar court Saturday awarded the death penalty to a man who raped and murdered a three-year-old girl, a lawyer said.
District and Sessions Court of Bateshwar Nath Pandey based in Katihar, about 160 km from here, handed out death penalty to Sanjay Rishi for the rape-cum-murder of the victim who was related to him, a prosecutor said.
