Jaipur, October 6
A special court in Rajasthan’s Alwar district on Tuesday convicted and awarded rigorous life imprisonment to four men for the gangrape of a woman in 2019.
The court also awarded five years imprisonment to the fifth culprit under the IT act for circulating a video clip of the incident.
The rigorous life imprisonment until natural death was awarded to Hansraj Gurjar, Ashok Gujar, Chhotelal Gurjar and Indraj Gurjar for gangrape by the special court that deals with cases under the SC/ST (Prevention of Atrocities) Act.
The incident took place on April 26 last year when the four men raped the woman in front of her husband at an isolated place on the Thanagazi-Alwar bypass in Rajasthan. The four had gangraped the woman, extorted money and filmed the video of the incident.
The FIR in the case was registered on May 2. The case had triggered widespread protest and was condemned across the country. PTI
