Four persons have been given the death penalty in three cases of rape with minors in Rajasthan since March, when the State introduced a provision for capital punishment if the rape victim was below 12 years.

Rajasthan DGP O.P. Galhotra said that a rape case was registered at Jhalawar Kotwali on February 14, in which the victim was a six-year-old girl. A chargesheet was filed on February 28 after the probe was completed in 16 days. The court sentenced the accused to death on August 24. Three other accused, two in Barmer and one in Alwar, were awarded death for raping minors.
