A man was sentenced to death by a Nadia district court for raping and killing a minor girl. 

Additional District Session Judge Parthasarathi Mukhopadhyay yesterday awarded capital punishment to Bimal Sardar (24) and imposed a fine of Rs 2.20 lakh. According to prosecution, the victim girl, a student of class VII, did not return home after completion of her examination on June 10 last year. 
Locals then beat him up and handed him over to the police.

Her almost naked body, with the throat slit, was found in a field the next day by Sardar who informed local people about it. 

The locals, however, got suspicious of Sardar's behaviour and started grilling him. At one point of time, he broke down and confessed that he had raped and killed her.
