A local court today awarded the death sentence to a teenager for raping a three-year-old girl.

Chhatarpur Additional Sessions Judge Naurin Nigam awarded capital punishment to Tauheed Musalman, 19, after convicting him under section 376 (A)(B) of the recently-introduced Criminal Law (Amendment) Ordinance 2018, said district prosecution officer S K Chaturvedi.

He said on April 24, the culprit was caught raping the victim after he had sneaked into her house while the child's mother was talking to her brother-in-law outside.

The child's mother found her in a pool of blood and Musalman was nabbed by the people and handed over to the police, Chaturvedi said.

A case was registered with Rajnagar Police station in this district, the prosecution official said.
