In quick disposal of a rape case, a local Chandigarh court gave life imprisonment to five accused of raping a 20-year-old German tourist in September 2008. Pankaj Punia, Manvir Singh Jolly, Harpreet Singh Dalli, Sukhwinder Singh Sukhi and Sompal were booked for kidnapping the woman from outside a five star hotel in Chandigarh on September 28 and taking her to a farmhouse in Haryana's Samalakha area where she was gang raped.
The five youths were convicted under section 376 (2) (g) (gangrape) of the Indian Penal Code and awarded life imprisonment.

Besides, the court slapped a fine of Rs 20,000 on each one of them for the gangrape offence. The judge also held them guilty under section 473 (display of fake number plate on the vehicle), 363/366 (kidnapping) and 506 (threatening).

He awarded three-year jail term for their conviction under section 473 and five-year for the offence under section 363/366 besides imposing a fine of Rs 3,000 for each of these two offences.

The court also awarded one-year jail term and a fine of Rs 1,000 under section 506. The total fine payable by each convict would be Rs 27,000 and all the four prison terms would run concurrently, the court said.
