The Supreme Court today acquitted three criminals sentenced to death by a Delhi court after being found guilty of raping and killing a 19-year-old woman in Delhi’s Chawala district in 2012.
The dismembered bodies of the victims were found in the fields, with multiple injuries from the attack on items ranging from car tools to clay pots.
In February 2014, a Delhi court convicted and sentenced three men to death for raping and killing a 19-year-old woman in 2012.
On August 26, 2014, the Delhi High Court affirmed the death sentence, saying they were “predators” who were walking the streets “looking for their prey”.
Three men, Ravi Kumar, Rahul and Vinod, were convicted on various charges involving kidnapping, rape and murder.
The case dates back to February 2012, when the body of a 19-year-old girl was found in Haryana state. The girl was brutally murdered after being raped.
A case was registered at the Chawala (Najafgarh) police station outside Delhi.
According to the prosecution, the crime was brutal in nature as they first kidnapped the woman, raped her, killed her and dumped her body in a block in Rodhai village, Rewari district, Haryana state in the fields.
