Press Trust of India | Updated Jul 23, 2013 at 03:48pm IST
 In a speedy trial, a 26-year-old man was sentenced to death by a local court for raping and killing a six-year-old girl in Datia in April this year.
District and Sessions Judge Rajiv Sharma, while awarding the death penalty on Monday, observed that people like Kamlesh Kushwaha (the accused) are "cancerous" to the society and hence its necessary to eliminate them in the same manner just as doctors remove cancer tumours surgically for saving people's lives.
The hearing in the case began on July 15 and it was completed in only eight days, according to public prosecutor Rajendra Tiwari. On April 18, Kushwaha, a resident of Maheba village raped and murdered the girl belonging to Dongarpur village. 
Kamlesh, who was living in Dongarpur with a relative took the girl to a farm on some pretext and committed the crime. Postmortem reports had confirmed rape and also 21 injuries were found on the girl's body following which the accused was arrested.
