Tiktok Ridoy, 6 others get life term for raping woman in India


An Indian court has sentenced 11 people on different terms for trafficking and gang-raping a 22-year-old Bangladeshi woman in Bengaluru city on May 27 last year.

A special court of Bengaluru city in Karnataka state of India pronounced the sentences. Of the accused, seven were given life-term, one 20-year and another five-year jail sentences, reports The Indian Express.

The accused are Sabuj, Tiktok Ridoy Babu, Rafsan Mondol, Rakibul Islam Sagar, Mohammad Babu, Dalim and Azim. All of them have been given life-term jail sentences.

Another accused named Tania was given 20-year jail sentence, accused Jamal 5-year jail sentence, and the rest two accused--Nusrat and Kajol -- were asked to serve in jail for nine months.

The incident had occurred in Bengaluru which became viral on social media after videos of torture and rape were shared.

Seven of the accused in the case were reportedly given life imprisonment, while one woman was slapped with a 20-year jail term and one man was given a five-year imprisonment. The other two women accused in the case were asked to serve in jail for nine months.

The victim, who was in Bengaluru at the time, was allegedly caught hold of by a gang of human traffickers who lured her into sex work on the pretext of giving her a job. In a video that outraged people, four men and one woman were seen assaulting the woman.

The case was being handled by the Bengaluru's Whitefield Police who tracked down six of the accused. The other five accused were arrested later by the Ramamurthynagar Police.

The accused were reportedly running a human trafficking ring, trapping several young girls from Bangladesh into the flesh trade by offering them employment opportunities. Police sources told the media that the victim was raped after she had an argument with her traffickers.

Reports indicate that 12 people were originally arrested in the case, however, one of them turned an approver for the investigators. Therefore, 11 people were convicted in the case. As the case involved another country, reports said the National Investigation Agency (NIA) also supervised.
