A court in Uttar Pradesh's Aurraiya district has awarded the death sentence to a man who was convicted for raping and murdering an eight-year-old girl earlier this year.
Three Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) terrorists, including two Pakistani nationals, were sentenced to death by the Bongaon Court in West Bengal on Saturday.
The militants were sentenced to death on charges of carrying ammunitions and trying to cross over illegally to India.
The convicts are Mohammed Yunus, Mohammed Abdullah and Mohammed Muzaffar Ahmed and they were arrested from Bongaon border in 2007.
While Yunus and Abdullah are originally from Karachi, Muzaffar is from Anantnag in Jammu and Kashmir. They were held guilty by the court on January 19 after the trial.
Huge quantities of explosives apart from fake documents were recovered from them.
