New Delhi : The Supreme Court on Monday acquitted three people sentenced to death by a Delhi court after they were convicted of raping and murdering a 19-year-old girl in Delhi's Chhawla area in 2012. This case of rape and murder is 10 years old.

In fact, after being found guilty of raping and murdering a 19-year-old girl in 2012, the three convicts were sentenced to death. The mutilated corpse of the victim was found lying in a field and it was found with several serious injuries from car tools to pottery as a result of the attack.

In February 2014, a Delhi court sentenced three men to death for raping and murdering a 19-year-old girl in 2012. The accused had challenged this sentence in the Delhi High Court.

Subsequently, on 26 August 2014, the Delhi High Court also upheld the death sentence, saying that they were 'hunters' who were roaming the streets and were 'looking for prey'. The three men, Ravi Kumar, Rahul and Vinod, were convicted under various charges related to kidnapping, rape and murder. After this, an appeal was made in the Supreme Court against the punishment on behalf of the convicts.

Significantly, this case dates back to February 2012, when the body of a 19-year-old girl was found in Haryana. After the rape, she was brutally murdered. A case was registered in this regard at Chhawla (Najafgarh) police station in outer Delhi. According to the prosecution, the crime was brutal in nature as they first kidnapped, raped, murdered her and then dumped her body in a field in Rodai village in Haryana's Rewari district.
