Allahabad HC upholds death sentence of man convicted for rape, murder of minor girl

The Allahabad High Court on Friday upheld the death penalty awarded to a 31-year-old man convicted of raping and murdering a minor girl. Considering the aggravating and mitigating circumstances of the case, imposition of the extreme penalty of death sentence on Putai is fully justified, the court said. The court also upheld the life imprisonment awarded to co-accused Dileep, who was convicted for the same offences. The two had filed separate appeals challenging a 2014 sessions court order.

The injuries found on the body of the deceased girl also reflect the manner in which she was subjected to rape
