Swati Sehgal, Special Judge, Fast Track Court, Chandigarh, has sentenced Sanjeev Kumar Yadav, a resident of Sector 29, here, to undergo rigorous imprisonment (RI) of 20 years for raping a girl. The court also imposed a fine of Rs 100,000 on the convict.
“The accused in order to satisfy his lust had ravished prosecutrix leaving behind a permanent scar on her body and soul. Rape is a barbaric act. It is an offence not only against the prosecutrix, but also against her family that suffers along with her. Such an act of the accused deserves to be dealt sternly and call for stringent punishment,” the court said while pronouncing the order.
