10-year imprisonment for kidnapping, raping minor

 A youth was sentenced to ten years in jail by a Delhi court for kidnapping a minor girl and repeatedly raping her.

The court also imposed a fine of Rs 25,000 on 23-year-old convict Surender. He had kidnapped the a minor girl of about 14 years from Delhi in 2009 and took her to his village in Uttar Pradesh, where he raped her after making her eat some snacks containing intoxicating substance.

The prosecution case dates back to March 8, 2009, when the victim’s mother, residing in Siraspur village on rent and working with her daughter in a food grain godown, reported to police that her daughter had gone missing.

She said her daughter had gone for work, but when she reached the godown, she did not find her there. The girl was spotted along with Surender at a bus stand on March 13, 2009 and they were apprehended.

Surender claimed innocence, saying the girl loved him and had eloped with him. He added that he was falsely implicated.

The girl said Surender had kidnapped her and raped her. She denied that her parents had tutored her to depose against Surender. She also denied that she was having any affair with him.

The judge dismissed Surender’s claim that he was falsely implicated.
