Court awards death sentence to man in rape and murder case

A 47-year old man was on Tuesday awarded death sentence by a Giridih court for raping and murdering a seven-year-old girl in 2011.

Giridih District and Additional Sessions Court Judge Sunil Kumar found Mathura Yadav guilty of the crime that took place at Badidih village.

The court also awarded a two-year rigorous prison term to his father Bhikari Yadav for hiding the body in a bush to tamper with evidence.

Mathura Yadav lured the girl with mangoes, took her to a nearby forest and perpetrated the crime. He chopped off the head of the little girl with an axe.
