A private school principal has been awarded a death sentence for raping his 11-year-old student in Patna. Another teacher has been handed a life term for his complicity.
POSCO court judge Awdhesh Kumar, who announced the verdict, said the court had to take a strong view of the matter so that it could serve as a deterrent. The court also lauded police’s efforts to get strong evidence including DNA test reports.
The case was lodged in September 2018. The victim had later become pregnant.
