NEW DELHI: A Delhi court on Monday sentenced five men who were convicted in the sensational 2010 Dhaula Kuan gangrape case, of a BPO woman executive from North-East, to life imprisonment. Terming the men as psychopaths, who should be kept away from the society as long as possible, Additional Sessions Judge  Virender Bhat said, “It appears that the convicts were wandering about the Delhi roads like beasts looking for their target. It has come on record that all the convicts were married at that time, having children and still they were roaming the roads in Delhi in search of a soft target to satisfy their sexual lust.”

Observing that the crime committed by the convicts was quite grave, serious and odious in nature, the judge said: “The rape victim has to live with the scar throughout her life and the incident has shattered her life as well as her dreams in a violent manner.”

“Rape is a serious blow to the honour, dignity and womanhood of the victim and besides causing immense trauma to her, it has an everlasting impact upon her mind as well as soul,” the judge said, while awarding maximum sentence and imposing a fine of `50,000.

The court sentenced Usman alias Kale, Shamshad alias Khutkan, Shahid alias Chhota Billi, Iqbal alias Bada Billi and Kamruddin alias Mobile.
