In a case that has shocked the community, a local court on Monday handed down a death sentence to a 22-year-old man for the brutal rape and murder of a young girl earlier this year.

Special Additional District and Session Judge of the POCSO court, Deep Kant Mani, also levied a fine of Rs 1.1 lakh on the convict, Rajesh, alias Lala, government counsel Sant Pratap Singh confirmed. The horrific incident occurred on February 21 in a village under Kaiserganj Police Station. The young victim's body was later discovered in a nearby sugarcane field, leading to the immediate suspicion and arrest of Rajesh.

Further investigations revealed that Rajesh's brother, Kallu, had assisted in the heinous crime. Kallu remains at large and is being actively pursued by law enforcement. The court decreed that the entire fine should be awarded to the victim's grieving mother.
