Life Sentences for Four Teenagers Convicted in 2021 Gang Rape Case
Four teenage boys have been sentenced to life in prison by an anti-terrorism court (ATC) for their involvement in a gang rape case.
The prosecution alleged that the boys, Adeel, Subhan, Muzammil and Ariz, had called the victim, a student of 8th grade, to an empty house where they gang raped her on January 13, 2021 and filmed the incident on a mobile phone with the intent to blackmail her and threatened her with dire consequences if she disclosed the incident to anyone.
The defense argued that the victim’s statement alone was sufficient for conviction of the accused as per the Supreme Court’s ruling. The victim had implicated the four accused in her statement and medical evidence and forensic science laboratory reports of the video and mobile phone used to record the crime corroborated the charges.
