3 CONVICTED FOR PARK STREET RAPE SENTENCED TO 10 YRS IN JAIL
KOLKATA: Three men convicted in the 2012 Park Street gang rape case were sentenced to 10 years of rigorous imprisonment and ordered to pay a fine of Rs1 lakh each by a sessions court on Friday after the prosecution did not seek life imprisonment for them as is normally done.
More than three years after the incident shocked the nation, the court on Thursday held Ruman Khan, 32, Sumit Bajaj, 34, and Naser Khan, 32, guilty of the crime. Two other men accused in the case, Kader Khan and Mohammed Ali, remain at large and are yet to be tried in court.
The victim, an Anglo-Indian mother of two, had publicly fought for justice. She died in March of multi- organ failure owing to an illness.
