Court convicts Mizo girl rape accused

Finally she got Justice


NEW DELHI, Dec 8
– A city court today convicted the lone arrested accused in the sensational Dhaula Kuan gangrape case in which a Delhi University student was abducted and raped in a moving car here. Additional Sessions Judge Neeraj Kumar Gupta held Ajit Singh Katiyar guilty under various Sections of the IPC dealing with abduction, rape and criminal intimidation.


The court fixed December 10 for arguments on the quantum of sentence. The convict may face a maximum punishment of rigorous life imprisonment.


The court had yesterday deferred till today its verdict in the case in which a 20-year-old Delhi University girl was abducted and gangraped in amoving car four years ago.


Earlier on November 30 too, the court had deferred the pronouncement of verdict.


The DU student, hailing from Mizoram, was abducted at around 2.15 am on May 8, 2005 while she was walking back home after buying food from a roadside eatery along with a friend and was raped by four accused in amoving car near Dhaula Kuan in South Delhi, the prosecution had said in its argument.


Her friend, somehow, managed to escape from the spot.


The victim was later dumped near a Gurudwara in the area.


Police, however, could arrest only one of the accused – Ajit Singh Katiyar. The other three accused – Danda, Jat and Tappe – have evaded arrest and were declared proclaimed offenders during the trial. – PTI
