MP: Two men gets death sentence for raping 8-year-old in Mandsaur


Mandsaur, Aug 21: Two men Irfan and Asif were sentenced to death on Monday by a special court for raping a seven-year-old girl in Madhya Pradesh's Mandsaur area.

Special Judge Nisha Gupta held the two accused - Irfan alias Bhaiyu (20) and Asif (24) - guilty under relevant sections, public prosecutor B S Thakur said. The court will pronounce the quantum of sentence later in the day, he said.

The Class 2 student was lured away by the two men - Irfan and Asif - when she was standing outside her school on June 26, waiting for her parents to pick her up. The men raped her, tortured her and then slit her throat before walking away.
