Bijnor: A man who kidnapped and raped a 16-year-old girl almost two years back has been awarded with 7 years rigorous-imprisonment by a local court.
Additional District Judge (III) Het Ram Singh sentenced Pappu alias Chhanga, a resident of Muhammadpur Deomal village under Mandawar police station, to the term on Friday.
Pappu had taken advantage of the intimacy that he shared as a regular visitor, with the then 16-year-old minor’s family and kidnapped and raped the girl on March 28, 2009.
Acting on the complaint of the girl’s father Dharam Veer, the police recovered her a few days later from the Railway station at Chandok.
The girl then told the police that the accused had taken her to Jallandhar, where he raped her.
Finding him guilty of kidnapping and rape, the seven year sentence was given with a fine of Rs 2,000.
