A local court has awarded death sentence to a man and life terms to four others in a six-year- old murder case, terming it as "rarest of rare" and the killing as "most cruel". 

Additional sessions judge D P N Singh announced death sentence for Munna Rajbhar and life imprisonment for Hausala Devi, her father Ramjit Yadav and brothers Avdhesh Yadav and Dinesh Yadav. 

Ramdhyan Yadav was killed on August 10, 2009 in Khadsara village under Khejuri police station area and his body was thrown away, the prosecution said. 

Yadav's wife Hausala Devi was having an illicit relationship with Rajbhar. On that fateful day, he (Yadav) was on his way to her parents' house on her invitation when Rajbhar slit his neck and abdomen and also pulled out his intestines, prosecution said, adding that an FIR for murder and hiding the body was lodged. 

After hearing both the sides, the court termed the murder as most cruel and the case as rarest of rare and awarded the sentences.
