After nearly four years justice caught up with six people, who were accused of raping a woman in Gramin Sewa near Kalindi Kunj in south-east Delhi. A Delhi court has sentenced these six accused to up to 12 years in jail for their abominable act.
31-year-old Vicky was sentenced to 12 years jail term for the offences of gangrape, kidnapping and unnatural offences and sent five other convicts, including a Gramin Sewa driver, to 10 years in jail for gangraping the victim.
In a 55-page order, Additional Sessions Judge Sanjiv Jain said: “The increasing trend of crimes against women can be arrested only once society realises that any form of deviance against women would not be tolerated and more so in extreme cases of brutality such as the present one. Hence the criminal justice system must instill confidence in the minds of people, especially women.
“These are the times when gruesome crimes against women have become rampant and courts cannot turn a blind eye to the need to send a strong deterrent message to the perpetrators of such crimes. Such offences require exemplary punishment.” The complaint was lodged on May 19, 2012, according to the prosecution. “A person with so much trauma cannot be expected to remember every scene and depose in a parrot-like manner.”
