CBI court defers sentence in Gudiya rape and murder case

Shimla, May 18

A CBI special court today deferred the announcement of quantum of sentence in the Gudiya rape and murder case to May 28. The court had held the lone accused Anil Kumar alias Nilu, a chirani (wood-cutter), guilty of rape and murder on April 28.

The convict could not be produced in the court due to corona restrictions and the announcement of sentence was postponed. Earlier, the special judge had said of the 14 crucial points of evidence produced by the CBI, 12 were found against Nilu, the most important evidence being matching of his DNA with samples found on the spot.

Nilu was held guilty under Sections 376 (2)(i), 376 (A) and 302 of the Indian Penal Code and Section 4 of the POCSO Act. The case dates back to July 4, 2017, when a minor was reported missing on her way back from school in Kotkhai (Shimla) and her body was found in a forest later. — TNS
