Special Judge Pankaj Kumar Srivastava on Saturday held the accused Prashant guilty and sentenced him to 10 years in jail, and also imposed a fine of Rs 50,000.

According to the prosecution, a 14-year-old girl student had gone Kamla Nehru Balika Inter College in Lalganj on January 19, 2016.

However, the college was closed due to rains on that day.

Based on the complaint lodged by the family members of the girl, a case was registered against Prashant.
