A district court today awarded death sentence to a 28-year-old youth for rape-cum murder of a minor girl three years ago. 

Sanjay Kumar, the convicted, had lured a 7-year-old girl to a field at Daler village in the Medical police station area of Gaya district, raped her and then killed her for fear of being caught. 

The incident had occurred on March 10, 2012.
