May 12, 2017

Krishnagar-  A Krishnagar court today sentenced a married man to life imprisonment for throwing acid at a teenaged girl in Nadia district last year and killing her for spurning his sexual advances. 

Additional District Judge Jimut Bahan Biswas also imposed a fine of Rs 50,000 on convict Imam Ali Mondal, stipulating that he would undergo an additional jail term for a year if he failed to pay the fine. 

Another accused, a battery repairer who supplied acid to Mondal with no knowledge of its purpose, was acquitted. 

According to the prosecution, Mondal threw acid at 17- year-old Mou Rajak, a class XI student, when she was sleeping in her house in Hanskhali police station area on October 11 night last year. She later died in a Kolkata hospital. 

Mou's mother Tulu, who was sleeping on the same bed, too was seriously injured in the acid attack. 

Mondal, a married man, was angry with Mou for spurning his advances.
