A local court Monday convicted a 30-year-old man for raping a minor girl earlier this year. Additional District Judge-2 Babita Prasad found Manirul Ansari guilty under various sections of the Indian Penal Code and the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act.

S K Shukla, Additional Public Prosecutor, Ramgarh said the provisions attract a minimum punishment of 20 years imprisonment and maximum of death. Shukla said the court would pronounce the quantum of punishment on September 13. Ansari lured the minor girl by offering her chocolate and raped her on April 22. A case was lodged against Ansari with the Kuju police station of Ramgarh district the next day.

In a similar circumstance, five people, including the stepmother, were arrested on Tuesday for the gang rape and murder of a nine-year-old in Jammu and Kashmir's Baramulla district in a horrific crime stemming from jealousy.

Senior Superintendent of Police Syed Imtiyaz Hussain told reporters that the woman and four youths have been arrested for the gang rape and murder of the girl whose body was found in the forests of Uri tehsil two days back.

Giving details of the crime, he said the victim's father, Mushtaq Ahmad Ganai, complained that his daughter was missing and he feared she may have been abducted.

During an investigation, police found that the girl's father had two wives and that the victim was the daughter of a woman from Jharkhand.

His first wife, Fahmeeda, would mostly work outside the house while the other would mostly stay at home to cook food.

On September 2, the body of the missing girl was found in a decomposed form, about one kilometre from the family home.

The investigation revealed that Fahmeeda had been nourishing a long-standing grudge against the non-local wife of her husband and her children as she felt that her husband was more affectionate towards his second wife Khushboo.
