A POCSO court sentenced a man to 10 years in prison for raping a teenage girl in 2016.
Special Judge Pankaj Kumar Srivastava on Saturday found the accused Prashant guilty and sentenced him to 10 years in prison and also fined him 50,000 rupees.
According to the prosecution, a 14-year-old student visited Kamla Nehru Balika Inter College in Lalganj on January 19, 2016. However, the college was closed due to rains that day. At the college gate, Prashant (the convict), under the pretext of driving the girl home, took her to Jaunpur and raped her there.
Based on the complaint filed by members of the girl’s family, a case was filed against Prashant.
