Kaushambi gang rape case: POCSO court awards life imprisonment to convicts Nazim, Adil and Akib for raping minor Dalit girl and filming the act

One of the rapists was caught by local villagers who had rushed to the spot. The other two were caught by the police within four days of the crime. They had attacked the minor girl while she was out cutting grass.

On Wednesday, a special judge of a district POCSO court awarded life imprisonment to three Muslim men for raping a teenage girl and then posting a video of the crime on social media in the Kaushambi gang-rape case.

According to reports, special judge Anupam Kumar, after examining the witnesses produced by the prosecution, held the three criminals guilty and thereafter sentenced them to life imprisonment.

Each convict has also been fined Rs 1 Lakh 83 thousand.

The three accused, Mohammed Adil alias Chhotka, Mohammad Abid alias Badka and Mohammad Nazim had raped a minor Dalit girl in Sarai Akil area of Kaushambi district. According to the prosecution, the trio had also brutally assaulted the survivor.

In a gruesome incident, on 21st September last year, a 15-year-old Dalit girl was gang-raped and filmed by three men in Ghosia village of Kaushambi district near Prayagraj, Uttar Pradesh.

In a video of the gang-rape that has gone viral, the girl was seen begging and pleading the criminals to let her go. She was saying, “Allah ki Kasam, Mujhe Chhod do, Bhaiya Aap Mujhe Jaante Ho, Mere Sath mat Karo (brothers, please do not do this to me, I am known to you, please, for Allah’s sake, let me go”. Amidst screams and desperate cries, the helpless girl kept begging for mercy. However, the brutes refused to spare her.
