MEERUT: Two men convicted of gang-raping and murdering a 12-year-old girl in Hapur two years ago were sentenced to death Thursday by Special Judge (Pocso Law) Veena Narayan’s court.
“His younger brother was the key witness in the case. The assailants had abandoned him, leaving him for dead. Due to the neck injury, he was unable to speak, but gave his written statement during the initial investigation and at the trial, ”said Special Prosecutor (Pocso court) Harendra Tyagi.
The prisoners, Ankur Teli and Sonu, had been hired as domestic helpers in the girl’s home. On September 9, 2018, the children’s parents went out to work and the girl and her 10-year-old brother were alone. The two gang-raped the girl and when her brother tried to raise the alarm, they cut his throat and left him to die. Then they killed the girl and hid the body in a fodder trunk.
