HC upholds death to minor's rapist-killer


TNN | Jul 16, 2014, 12.46 AM IST BHOPAL: Madhya Pradesh high court (MPHC) on Tuesday upheld the death sentence awarded to Feroz Khan, charged with rape and murder of a 4-year-old girl in Seoni district. Double bench of MPHC comprising Justice Ajit Singh and Justice NK Gupta said the act was rarest of the rare and upheld the decision of the district and sessions court, which awarded capital punishment to Feroz in October 26 last year. The girl was abducted from her house in Ghansore on April 17 and abandoned in the fields after being raped. Later, on finding her lying unconscious on the fields, villagers took the girl to a hospital in Jabalpur. After her condition deteriorated on April 20, she was airlifted to Care Hospital of Nagpur, where she succumbed on April 30. Feroz, a welder working in Jhabua Power Plant, is a resident of Dhimra village in Bihar's Banka district. He was arrested from his maternal uncles' place in Hussainabad in Bhagalpur district of Bihar on April 23.
