The special judge Prakash Chand Shukla of a Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act (POCSO) court in Uttar Pradesh's Bijnor district has sentenced a 24-year-old man to 30 years of rigorous imprisonment, after finding him guilty of raping a five-year-old girl in November 2021, stated a report by PTI.

The court also slapped a fine of Rs 1 lakh on the convict, Rs 80,000 of which will be given to the survivor, said Additional District Government Counsel (ADGC) Yogendra Singh.
