Additional District and Sessions Judge Sunita Grover today sentenced three former law students of OP Jindal Global University—Hardik Sikri and Karan Chhabra each with 20 years’ of imprisonment and Vikas Garg with seven years imprisonment and holding them guilty of blackmailing and gang raping of a student of the same university for about two years.

A complaint was lodged by the girl student to the university administration on April 11, 2015, alleging that the trio, final year law students of the university, have been blackmailing and raping her since August 2013.

She also alleged that the accused were having her objectionable photos and they used to threaten her for making the photos viral. She was being blackmailed and forced to make physical relations with them.

The university forwarded her complaint to the police and after registration of a case, they were arrested by the police. The victim was medically examined and her statement was recorded before a magistrate. The accused were in the judicial custody since their arrest in April 2015 as the court had denied them bail.
