INDIA: BENGAL’S SERIAL KILLER SENTENCED TO DEATH IN RAPE AND MURDER CASE

July 8, 2020:

A 38-year-old man was sentenced to death on 6 July 2020 in a rape and murder case by a district court in south Bengal’s East Burdwan district, police said.
“The accused Kamruzzaman Sarkar was sentenced to death by the additional district and session’s judge court for raping and murdering a 16-year-old girl in May 2019. He was arrested on 2 June 2019,” said Bhaskar Mukherjee, superintendent of police of East Burdwan district.
“The court observed that it was one of the rarest of the rare cases. I stressed on maximum punishment as the man had hit the minor helpless girl on her forehead and then tried to strangulate her and raped her. Nothing can be more heinous than this,” said Soumyajit Raha, special public prosecutor of the case.
Sarkar has been charged in 15 cases in two districts – East Burdwan and Hooghly. There were two rape and murder cases, seven murder cases and six attempt to murder cases. The victims were aged between 16 and 75 years.
In some cases he was charged with sections related to robbery as he had robbed the victims. All the crimes took place between 2013 and 2019 till he was arrested.
