The crime used to be executed by Zakir along side two of his minor partners on March, earlier this year. While, under POSCO, Zakir used to be convicted to life imprisonment for raping the minor, he used to be convicted to death by another judgement for murdering the minor girl.


On the other hand the court acquitted five others for lack of evidence. Two other minor accused were found guilty and sent to a correctional home for three years by a kid court earlier this week.

Zakir Hussain used to be sentenced by the district and sessions pass judgement on of Nagaon on 4th September (Tuesday). Then again, the court had earlier acquitted Zakir’s father, mother and brother-in-law, who were also accused in the case.
