Death sentence to two youths for rape, murder

A local court in Uttar Pradesh’s Azamgarh district Saturday sentenced two youths to death for raping and killing a teenaged girl, and later beating her father also to death, a lawyer said.

Additional District and Sessions Judge Buddhiram Yadav sentenced Ram Avtar and Arvind Kumar, natives of Piyaroakbarpur village, to death.

‘Avtar and Arvind, now in their mid 20s, had raped and killed a 13-year-old girl of the same village in July 2009. When the girl’s father Chandradhari tried to rescue her, the two assaulted him with rods, and he succumbed to injuries on the spot,’ prosecution lawyer S.P. Rai told reporters in Azamgarh, some 300 km from Lucknow.
