Kathua Rape-Murder Highlights: 3 Guilty Sentenced To Life Imprisonment

The gang-rape, torture and killing of the girl shocked and disturbed the entire country.

New Delhi: 

A court on Monday sentenced three men to life imprisonment for the rape and murder of an eight-year-old girl in Jammu and Kashmir's Kathua district last year, a lawyer for the defence said, in a case that sparked outrage across the country. Three other men also convicted in the case were given a five-year prison sentence, lawyer Vinod Mahajan told reporters outside the courtroom in Pathankot. The girl, from a nomadic Muslim community, was drugged, held captive and sexually assaulted for a week before being strangled and battered to death with a stone in January 2018.
