A local court on Friday awarded the capital punishment to a 24-four year old man accused of raping and brutally killing a nine-year-old girl around 18 months ago. The shocking incident came to light on January 16 last year in Gaddi Mohalla under Old Faridabad police station.

The father of the victim, a resident of Munger district in Bihar, was living with his family in Gaddi Mohalla in the Sector 16 area when the gruesome incident took place.

The family lived on rent in the house of the convict, who had raped and murdered the minor and then packed her body in a bag and dumped it at a garbage dumping site.

On the day of the incident, the couple had sent their daughter to landlord Inder Saini’s room with a plate of snacks in the evening. However, they started growing suspicious after the girl failed to return even after half an hour.

The girl’s father found some blood stains in Inder’s room and realised that even the landlord was missing. He immediately raised an alarm.

The body was later found and sent to BK Hospital, where doctors confirmed rape after conducting a medical examination.

Old Faridabad police had registered a case under Sections 302, 376F, 201 and 212.
