Six convicted in Kamduni rape-murder case

Kolkata, Jan 28 (IANS) A court on Thursday convicted six people for the brutal gang rape and murder of a college student in West Bengal’s Kamduni village.

Additional City and Sessions Judge Sanchita Sarkar acquitted two other accused for want of evidence.

Arguments and counter-arguments on the quantum of punishment will be heard by the court on Friday.

Saiful Ali, Ansar Ali and Amin Ali were declared guilty of gang rape and murder by the judge — over two years and seven months after the gruesome incident near Barasat, 20 km from Kolkata — in North 24 Parganas district. The maximum punishment under these sections is death.

The 20-year-old girl was attacked while she was returning home from college on June 7, 2013. She was forcibly taken inside a factory where she was gang-raped and then savagely murdered, sparking widespread outrage.

Three other accused — Sheikh Emanul Islam, Aminur Islam and Bhola Naskar — were pronounced guilty of gang rape, criminal conspiracy and causing disappearance of evidence, under relevant sections of the Indian Penal Code.

Rafiqul Islam and Nur Ali were acquitted, while the ninth accused Gopal Naskar died while the trial was on.
