A Special POCSO court has sentenced a 22-year-old man to 20 years’ rigorous imprisonment for abducting and raping a minor girl, a court official said on Sunday.
Special Judge (POCSO) Madhu Dogra in her order on Saturday also imposed a fine of Rs 33,000 on the convict, Rs 25,000 of which will go to the victim.
Special public prosecutor (POCSO) Ashwani Kumar Mishra said that the matter pertains to a village under Gopiganj Police Station, where on April 29, 2022, a 16-year-old Class 8 student was abducted and raped by Ajay Kumar Yadav.
A case was registered against Yadav the very next day at the complaint of the girl’s father, and hearing in the matter started on March 9, 2022.
