Kamduni rape verdict: 3 convicts to be hanged till death

Kolkata: Following a long wait of over two and half years, three of the Kamduni rape convicts were handed death sentences while the three others were awarded life-term in the gangrape case that traumatised West Bengal in 2013.

While Amin Ali, Saiful Ali Mollah and Ansar Ali were awarded death sentences, Bhola Naskar, Aminur Islam and Imanul Islam were given life term by the City Session Court today.

Nine men dragged a second-year Derozio College student while she was returning home and gang raped and butchered her in Kamduni, of Bengal’s North 24 Parganas district. They brutally tore apart her legs up to the navel and slit her throat and dumped the body in a fish pond. The body was discovered on 8 June, 2013. The gruesome event occurred just nine months after the Nirbhaya rape case of Delhi.

One of the accused died during the trial process while two were acquitted for lack of evidence.

Prime accused Saiful Ali Mollah showed no remorse during the trial process. He even enacted before the magistrate how brutal they were during the inhuman incident.

The investigation officers had earlier claimed that the incident was ‘rarest of rare’ case. They said the case was built on circumstantial evidence as there was no eyewitness available

The defendant counsel would appeal to higher court.

While the people of West Bengal was eagerly waiting for the verdict, the Court’s decision would have a cascading effect on the people or the hamlet, Kamduni. The convicts’ allegiance to the ruling Trinamool Congress had embedded fear in the mindset of the villagers.

Though the villagers welcomed the verdict but they apprehend a backlash from the close aides of the convicts.
