"From society's and legal view point, what the accused has done is unpardonable and it falls in the rarest of rare category," the court said while sentencing the accused, Karan Bheel, to death.
"Looking at the gravity of the crime, only the death penalty will serve the purpose of justice delivery," the judge said.
According to the prosecution, Bheel abducted the girl from Jagannathpura village on December 15 last year.
After raping her, he crushed her head with a stone, it said.
After her body was found in a nearby forest, Bheel was arrested immediately and police filed a charge sheet within fifteen days.
The prosecution examined 20 witnesses, Purohit said, adding that the court relied on the witnesses' statements among other evidence.
