Three get death,Others Life For 2013 Kamduni gangrape and murder Case

Kolkata: Jan 30; A Kolkata court on Saturday sentenced three people to death and three others to life in prison for gangraping and murdering a woman at Kamduni village in West Bengal's North 24 Parganas district in 2013.

Additional district and sessions judge Sanchita Sarkar sentenced Ansar Ali Mollah, Saiful Ali and Amin Ali to death and awarded life imprisonment to Bhola Naskar, Imanul Islam and Aminur Islam.

A court on Thursday had found six of the eight accused men guilty of gangraping and murdering the woman. Two accused, named in the charge sheet, were acquited and one died in the course of the trial.

Friends and family members of the victim, who had been demanding capital punishment for all eight persons named in the charge sheet, were disheartened with the quantum of sentence and said they would move the high court against the verdict. Some of them broke down into tears.

"We would move the Calcutta high court against this verdict. We want capital punishment for all the eight," the victim's brother said.

The 20-year-old woman was attacked while she was returning home from college on June 7, 2013. The second-year BA student was forcibly taken inside a factory where she was gangraped and then brutally murdered, sparking widespread outrage across the country.
