Two get death for r*ping, burning alive minor girl in Bhilwara

A POCSO court in Rajasthan’s Bhilwara district sentenced two men to death on Monday for raping and burning alive a minor girl in a coal furnace in August of last year. “Kalu and Kanha were awarded death penalty by the court,”  stated Special Public Prosecutor Mahaveer Singh Kishnawat.

Kalu and Kanha were found guilty by the court of the August crime of last year. The court found seven other people not guilty of destroying evidence. Kishnawat stated that the verdict would be challenged in the high court.

In the Bhilwara district of Rajasthan, a 14-year-old girl went missing, and her burnt body was found in a coal furnace. After raping the girl, the two accused threw her into a coal furnace.

On August 2, 2023, a minor girl from the district’s Shahpura Panchayat Samiti region went to graze goats, according to reports.

When she did not return until the evening, her family and the locals set out to search for her. When the family and locals were unable to locate the girl, they contacted the police to file a missing report, but the case was not registered. The next morning, the locals searched for the girl again and discovered her bones in a brick kiln in a field near her home.
