In Madhya Pradesh, in a speedy judgment, a Bhopal court today awarded death sentence to a 35-year-old man for raping and killing a minor girl last month. Special Judge Kumudini Patel pronounced the punishment to Vishnu Bamora on two separate offences under Indian Penal Code Sections 302 (murder) and 376-AB (raping a girl of 12-year-old and below). 

State prosecution cell's spokesperson Sudha Vijay Singh Bhadoriya informed that the convict was also sentenced to life for the offence of unnatural sex with the eight-year-old girl. The judge also awarded him three years' and seven years' imprisonments under various IPC Sections. 

The Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) court ordered all the sentences to run concurrently. 

The girl went missing after she came out of her house in Kamla Nagar area in Bhopal on June 8 to make a purchase. Her body was found next morning near a drain in the area. 


Bamora was arrested from Mortakka village in Khandwa on June 10 for raping and smothering the minor girl. A 108-page charge sheet was filed against him on June 12.
