INDIA: MAN SENTENCED TO DEATH IN ANDHRA PRADESH FOR RAPE-MURDER OF 7-YR-OLD GIRL

January 29, 2023:

A court in the Indian state of Andhra Pradesh on 25 January 2023 awarded death sentence to a man for raping and killing his relative, a seven-year-old girl in July 2021.
The Judge of the special Pocso court M A Somasekhar found the accused D Siddaiah guilty under relevant sections of the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (Pocso) Act and IPC and sentenced him to capital punishment.
The girl's body was found in a plastic bag in a drainage canal on the outskirts of Ambavaram village in Giddalur mandal of Prakasam district after she went missing on 8 July 2021.
The girl's parents subsequently lodged a complaint with police and a case was registered under relevant sections of Pocso and IPC in Giddalur police station. Prakasam district superintendent of police Malika Garg instructed the police officials to investigate the case thoroughly, to collect proper physical evidence and to arrest the accused immediately. During the course of the investigation, police found that Siddaiah, 30, a close relative of the girl, who was estranged by his wife and living in the same street where the girl lived, had left the village since the day the girl went missing and suspected Siddaiah's role in the crime.
The sniffer dog tracked from the crime scene and went to Siddaiah's house where a blood-stained blanket, a bicycle and the girl's sandals were found. The accused was subsequently arrested and lodged in a jail in Ongole.
According to prosecution, on 8 July 2021 the man noticed the girl playing in the area and with an intention of raping her lured her by offering her money and took her into his house and raped her. When the girl started weeping, he killed her by hitting her head against a cot frame suspecting that he would be arrested if the matter came out. Later, to avoid suspicion and tampering with the evidence, he wrapped the girl's body in a plastic bag, took it on his bicycle and dumped in the drainage canal.
