LUCKNOW: Three years after the abduction, gangrape, and murder of a minor in Bulandshahr, three convicts have been awarded death sentence by the local POCSO court on Wednesday. 

The incident had created a widespread outrage in 2018 in Bualndshahr after the trio kidnapped the victim, gang-raped, and killed her while she was returning home from the coaching centre. The three persons were arrested a few days after the incident as all of them were caught on CCTV camera while waylaying the victim in a car.

On January 2, 2018, the 17-year-old student of Class XII was kidnapped by the three car-borne men while she was returning from the coaching centre in Bulandshahr. They allegedly took turns with the victim, killed her and dumped her body in a canal in Dadri in Greater Noida, around 40 km away from the crime spot.
