Rapist gets death in MP, first after new law
BHOPAL: A court in MP’s Sagar district has awarded the death sentence to a man accused of raping a nine-year old girl on May 21 this year. SP Satyandra Shukla told TOI that this is perhaps the first case of capital punishment for child rape after the new law was passed by the state government.
Madhya Pradesh chief minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan, who pursued the death-for-child-rape law with great resolve, said: “This will send a strong message to criminals. Our government was always determined for a law to hang those who rape children.”
Home minister Bhupendra Singh termed the sentence “historic” and said it would send a message to criminals that the government will be merciless with those who rape kids.
In December last year, the MP assembly had unanimously passed a bill seeking death for those found guilty of raping girls aged 12 and below. After the President’s approval, the bill became a law on April 21 this year.
The convict, Bhaggi alias Bhagirath alias Narayan Patel, raped a child at a temple in Rehli tehsil. He was arrested within 12 hours from a jungle near the village and booked under IPC Sections 376 A & B for rape, 366 for abduction and Sections 3,4 and 5 of POCSO Act, said Shukla.
这名犯人，巴哈基又名巴哈基拉什, 外号纳拉扬帕特尔，在雷赫利乡的一座寺庙里强奸了一名女童。舒克拉说，不到12小时，警方就以IPC第376条A & B项强奸罪，366条诱拐罪和保护儿童免受性侵害法第3条、第4条和第5条在村庄附近的丛林中将其逮捕。
Investigation was completed in 72 hours — including recording the statements of 25 witnesses — and the chargesheet filed on May 24. The DNA report was received on July 2, and that nailed Bhaggi.
Additional public prosecutor P L Rawat said the hearing was completed in 46 days and additional district magistrate Sudhanshu Saxena Rehli pronounced the death sentence on Saturday.
The home minister lauded police and prosecution for their promptness shown in the case. “The state government amended the law and made provision for death sentence to rapists of minors to teach them a lesson,” Singh said.

Very good work. However we are forgetting that decision has been taken only by a local court. He will have enough lawyers to apeal in high court, supreme court and the president where the case will take ages and who knows he might be released!@@@@@
