A youth has been sentenced to 10 years in jail by a Delhi court for kidnapping a minor girl and repeatedly raping her after administering some tupefying substance to her with food.
The court also imposed a fine of Rs. 25,000 on convict Surender, 23, who had kidnapped the minor girl from Delhi in 2009 and had taken her to UP, where he raped her after making her eat some snacks containing an intoxicating substance.
"I am of considered opinion that the prosecution has proved beyond all reasonable doubts that the victim, a minor girl of about 14 years, was kidnapped by Surender after having been made to eat snacks containing some intoxicating substance...." said additional sessions judge Mahesh Chander Gupta.
The prosecution case dated back to March 8, 2009, when the victim's mother, residing in Siraspur village here on rent and working with her daughter in a food grain godown, reported to the police that her daughter had gone missing.
The girl was spotted along with Surender at a bus stand on March 13, 2009 and the duo was apprehended by police.
During the trial, Surender claimed innocence saying that the girl loved him and had eloped with him. He also claimed that he was falsely implicated in the case.
