In a significant judgment, the Special Judge (POCSO) First Track Court, Manipur on Thursday handed down a 10-year rigorous prison sentence to K Robindro, a 34-year-old resident of Ngachroupokpi, Bishnupur.
This ruling came as a result of Robindro’s involvement in the sexual assault of a three-year-old minor girl in Bishnupur district back in 2018. The case was pursued following a complaint lodged by the victim’s mother.
The charges against the convict were made under section 6 of the POCSO Act.
The court not only imposed a 10-year imprisonment but also levied a fine of Rs 5,000 on Robindro.
Notably, the period of six months and 20 days that the convict had already spent in custody was deducted from the 10-year sentence.
In the event of failing to pay the fine of Rs 5,000, the court’s order mandates that Robindro undergo an additional three months of simple imprisonment.
