Special Judge Nisha Gupta held Irfan alias Bhaiyu (20) and Asif (24) guilty and sentenced them to death under the newly-introduced IPC section 376 AB (punishment for rape of a woman under 12 years of age by one or more persons) and also under section 376 D – punishment for gang-rape.
The girl had suffered severe injuries on her neck, face, head and private parts in the incident –
“…there were many cut marks on the child’s face, neck, eyes, hands. Her face has various teeth marks too. Her rectum was totally damaged and doctors had to do a surgery for perennial injury. Doctors had to cut parts of her intestines and repair the severely damaged private parts. Tube had to be inserted in child’s nose as the injuries on her nose were also severe. Doctors also had to repair her face considerably.”
She is still undergoing treatment in Indore. As per a Times of India report –
“The DNA found in the girl’s vaginal swabs matched the DNA of the two accused and the pubic hair of the two accused were also found on the crime spot. The girl’s blood was found on accused Irfan’s clothes, which acted as an important evidence against the two.”
The thorough & speedy trial conducted in the case is also a welcome change from the norm in Bharatiya courts – the trial began on 30 July and daily hearings saw final arguments being made on 14 August, with the verdict announced today. One only hopes that the process of appeals in higher courts, mercy petitions, and last-minute appeals by the high-powered left-liberal lawyer lobby does not end up denying justice to the affected family.

The raised index finger gesture refers to tawhid, “the belief in the oneness of God and is a key component of the Muslim religion.” In fact, there is even a fundamentalist Islamic party in Tamil Nadu by the name of “Thowheed Jamaath”.
The utter lack of remorse & the brazen allegiance to the dreaded Islamist terror outfit ISIS shown by this convicted rapist means that the crime might very well have religious motivation. Islamists believe that all kafirs (non-Muslims) are inferior beings destined to burn in hell, and that kafir women are legitimate targets for sexual exploitation by Muslims.
