While sentencing Kishore, the court said, "Kishore is physically handicapped but… the victim herself is physically deformed and mentally much behind her age," the judge said, while also imposing a fine of Rs. 10,000 on him.

The incident took place in February this year when the victim, who is unable to speak clearly, was at her home in Haiderpur area in northwest Delhi with her siblings while her mother had gone for work. The accused called her to his house on the pretext of some cleaning work and misbehaved with her.
