SC Vindicates 3 death row inmates For Teen’s Rape-Murder In 2012
Supreme Court acquitted three convicts who had been given the death punishment by a Delhi court for the 2012 rape and murder of a 19-year-old woman in Delhi’s Chhawala
Earlier in the day,the Supreme Court acquitted three convicts who had been given the death punishment by a Delhi court for the 2012 rape and murder of a 19-year-old woman in Delhi’s Chhawala neighbourhood.
The victim’s fragmented body was discovered in a field with many wounds caused by assault with tools for cars and earthen pots, among other materials.
In February 2014, a Delhi court sentenced three men to death after finding them guilty of raping and killing a 19-year-old woman in 2012. On August 26, 2014, the Delhi High Court confirmed the death penalty, stating that the defendants were “predators” roaming the streets and “searching for prey.”
In relation to several allegations involving kidnapping, rape, and murder, three individuals named Ravi Kumar, Rahul, and Vinod were found guilty. The investigation began in February 2012, when the body of a 19-year-old woman was discovered in Haryana. After being raped, the girl was brutally murdered.
At the Chhawala (Najafgarh) police station in outside Delhi, a case was opened in relation to this. The prosecution claims that the crime was terrible in character because the victim was first kidnapped, then she was sexually assaulted, killed, and her body was thrown in a field in Rodhai village in Haryana’s Rewari district.
The case’s judgement had been reserved by Justices UU Lalit, Ash Ravindra Bhatt, and Bela M Trivedi as of 6 April. Aishwarya Bhati, the Additional Solicitor General, seeking confirmation of the death penalty on behalf of the Delhi government.
A request was made at this time to take the prospect of reforming the offenders into account. One of the prisoners, Vinod, was alleged to have an intellectual handicap before the court. His capacity for thought is poor. They had been pushed to take a sympathetic stance against the criminals by the defence attorney for them.
