Kolar Woman Judge Finishes Trial in 22 days in Attempted Rape and Murder Case

The second additional district and sessions judge (Kolar) finished a trial in 22 days, awarding death sentence to a 25-year old coolie for attempted rape and murder of a 15-year-old girl.

Judge BS Rekha convicted the accused, TN Suresh Babu, who was arrested by the Malur police on August 3 on charges of attempting to rape a schoolgirl in Malur before murdering her.

The victim’s body was found under a railway bridge on August 1.

After hearing arguments in the case, Judge BS Rekha pronounced the judgement in a record 22 days.

While concluding the case, Judge BS Rekha made some pertinent observations. With regard to the sentencing, the judge opined that:

“With respect to mitigating circumstances are concerned, there is no reason as to why lesser punishment should be given to accused. Further, it is not the case that he was mentally unfit or he was having any problem during that particular period, which made him to commit this alleged act”.

The judge also referred to the Nirbhaya case, and said that the facts produced before the court were not less gruesome than the Nirbhaya case, noting:

“…the victim an innocent 10th standard student having bright future was murdered for the purpose of sexual act in the daylight within the vicinity of the town is also not lesser to the NIRBHAYA case”.

Judge Rekha then stressed on the convict being sentenced adequately, as it will serve as a deterrent against such incidents from happening in the future, and observed:

If he is allowed for lesser punishment, then it will not be a lesson for others. In this case that girl was innocent and a helpless and she fought for life, but her life came to an end at his hands within span of half an hour. Further if proper punishment is not given, then the life of people will be at stake”.
