Four cops among six Paedophiles convicted, faces death penalty for gang raping 8-year-old girl

Six Paedophiles  were convicted on Monday over the notorious 2018 gang rape and murder in India of a young girl from a Muslim nomadic tribe that provoked horror and stoked inter-religious tensions. 

Sexual violence, including against children, is rife in India and outrage over the so-called Kathua case contributed to the government imposing the death penalty for child rapists. According to the charge sheet, eight-year-old Asifa Bano was abducted and taken to a village in the Kathua district of the northern Indian region of Jammu on January 10 last year. In an ordeal lasting five days, she was sedated and held in a Hindu temple, repeatedly raped over five days and then strangled and beaten to death.
