Five persons have been awarded life sentence by a Delhi court for kidnapping and gang-raping a mentally challenged 17-year-old girl. Delivering the judgment on Saturday, the judge asked the Delhi government to give a compensation of Rs 1 lakh to the victim.

The court, which also imposed a fine of R27,000 on each of the five convicts, said the probe agencies and government must ensure that in rape cases, where the identities of the accused are not known, DNA matching test be made mandatory.

The five — Mukesh, Prabhans Yadav, Deepak, Ravinder Kumar and Rajeev —have been held guilty of kidnapping and raping the minor girl in March last year.
