Rapist gets life sentence

A 54th city civil and sessions court on Wednesday sentenced a driver to life imprisonment for raping an eight-year-old girl six months ago.

While passing the order to convict Balakondaiah (29), Judge M Latha Kumari observed that he showed brutality on a small child and does not have the right to live in this society.

Balakondaiah is a resident of Halasuru and the victim was also staying with her parents in the same locality. On August 13, 2017, the accused approached the girl who was cycling near her house, touched her inappropriately and left the place.

He returned and told the victim that her father was having dinner with him and asked her to come along, too. Balakondaiah then raped her at his residence. The victim later reported the rape to her parents, who lodged a complaint at the Halasuru police station.

The police had booked him under the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act (POCSO) and various other sections and filed a charge sheet within 45 days.

The court had passed the order within six months, making it one of the shortest trials.
