A man was awarded the death sentence by a Sessions Court for raping a minor girl.
A 10 to 11-year-old girl was sexually assaulted in 2016 and the convict, Gulzar Shah, was found guilty of the charges.
The judgement reads, “The accused did not deserve any lenient view, as he had committed a gruesome offence and the incidents of rape with minor girls have become rampant.”
Additional District and Sessions Judge (West) Naveed Ahmed Soomro remarked, “It is the duty of the court to deal with the offences of this nature without any lenient view in order to create deterrence and peace in the society, where one would not worry about their daughters being ravished on a daily basis.”
Shah was also ordered by the court to pay a fine of Rs0.5 million.
