All the three men convicted in the gangrape of an Anglo-Indian woman on Park Street in Kolkata were sentenced to 10 years of rigorous imprisonment on Friday by a court in Kolkata.
Pronouncing the quantum of punishment during in-camera proceedings, Additional Sessions Judge Chiranjib Bhattacharya of the City Sessions Court also slapped fines of Rs.1 lakh each on Ruman Khan, Naser Khan and Sumit Bajaj.
“The judge after considering all aspects sent them to 10 years of rigorous imprisonment with fine of Rs.1 lakh each. In default, they would have to undergo another six months of rigorous imprisonment,” said a lawyer.
The woman – then 40 years old, a divorcee and mother of two – was beaten up and gang-raped at gun-point inside a moving car and then thrown off the vehicle near a city intersection on the night of February 5, 2012, after she had come out of a night club on the Park Street.
