The Delhi High Court on Monday upheld the life sentence award by the trial court to the prime accused in the rape of a Maulana Azad Medical College student in 2002.

Convict Rahul had acted “not only as a beast but even acted savage”, a bench headed by Justice Pradeep Nandrajog observed.

The court acquitted the other convict Amit on charges of rape and directed the police to release him as he had already undergone seven years of imprisonment.

Rahul and his accomplice Amit had been held guilty by the trial court in 2005.

The victim, a fourth-year

student of the Maulana Azad Medical College (MAMC), was raped at knife point on the terrace of the Mughal monument 'Khooni Darwaza' in central Delhi on November 15, 2002.

The trial court had awarded Rahul and Amit life imprisonment and acquitted two other accused, Ashok, of the charge of harbouring the accused, and Mohan Lal, of the charge of dishonestly receiving stolen property from the accused.

Delhi Police had, in 2003, filed a chargesheet against Rahul, Amit, Mohan Lal and Ashok in the case.
