A court in Odisha has given the death sentence to a man convicted of murdering a minor girl and then indulging in sex with her body in Jharsuguda. The judge described the case as being a "rarest of the rare incident". The capital punishment to 22-year-old Minaketan Seth was given for the crime he had committed in Kandeikela village in 2009.
Seth had intercepted the girl while she was returning home after giving lunch to her father in a field and took her to an isolated place. He strangulated her there before violating her body.
