Madhya Pradesh High Court says rape convict kind enough to leave survivor alive; reduces life sentence to 20 years’ jail

The appeal against conviction was preferred by the appellant Ramu @ Ramsingh against the judgement passed by the Additional Sessions Judge, Indore which had convicted the appellant for committing rape on a girl under twelve years of age under the Indian Penal Code.

The appellant-convict in the case used to live in a tent near the hut of the survivor.

It was the prosecution case that when the grandmother of the girl went to answer the call of nature, the girl also went behind her.

It was alleged that the appellant called victim into his tent on the pretext of giving her a rupee. Thereafter, when the grandmother heard the cries of the vgirl, she tried to call for help. The father of girl came out and heard his daughter’s cries from the tent of appellant.

When he entered the tent, he saw his daughter lying on the ground bleeding and the appellant naked. The appellant ran away from the spot soon after he saw the survivor’s father entering the tent.

The girl informed the father about whole incident and when she was taken to the hospital for examination, the doctor also confirmed rape.
