2010 Dhaula Kuan gangrape case: All 5 Convicts get Life

New Delhi, Oct 20: In a significant verdict, a trial court on Monday sentenced all the five convicts to life imprisonment in the 2010 Dhaula Kuan gang rape-cum-abduction case.

Five convicts - Shamshad alias Khutkan, Usman alias Kale, Shahid alias Chhota Billi, Iqbal alias Bada Billi and Kamruddin - were awarded seven years imprisonment for abducting a call centre employee and five years rigorous imprisonment for charges of criminal intimidation.

The court also imposed a fine of Rs 50,000 each on all the convicts for the offence. The verdict was pronounced in a courtroom amidst high drama with one of the convicts Shahid fainting. Some relatives of the convicts termed the judgement as injustice. They may challenge the verdict in the Delhi High Court.

The five were found guilty of abducting a BPO employee, who hailed from the northeast, on November 24, 2010 and then gangraping her. They took her to Mangalpuri, gangraped her and left her on an isolated road.

The incident had rocked the city following which the Delhi police ordered all the BPO firms in Delhi and NCR to drop women employees at their home after their shift ends.
