3-year-old girl killed after rape, fast track court sentenced death penalty to a rapist

Raipur: A fast track court in Rajnandgaon, Chhattisgarh on Monday gave a major verdict and sentenced the accused to death under the POCSO Act. Last year, the convict had raped and murdered a three-year-old girl, which led to a ruckus and people protested demanding the death penalty for the accused.

Special Judge of Fast Track Court of Rajnandgaon District Court Shailesh Sharma has sentenced the accused to death under the POCSO Act. On August 22 last year, a three-and-a-half-year-old innocent girl was lured with chocolates and raped after being invited to her house in Kanketra village under the Chikhli police outpost area of the district. In the meantime, the accused had choked the girl's mouth with a pillow and killed her to stop her screams.

Police had arrested 25-year-old village accused Shekhar Korram in the case. The matter then went on in fast track court. Rallies were also held in the city in favour of the girl and her family and demanded immediate execution of the accused. There were also some hurdles in the hearing of the case as the court remained closed due to the corona period. Even then, Special Judge of fast track court Additional and District Sessions Judge Shailesh Sharma, in a speedy justice, sentenced the accused to death within 1 year.
