All the three convicts in the Park Street gangrape case were sentenced to 10 years’ rigorous imprisonment by a Sessions Court Friday, more than three years after a 37-year-old mother of two was sexually assaulted in a moving car here. The victim, Suzette Jordan, died of encephalitis in March this year.

Additional sessions judge Chiranjib Bhattacharya sentenced Ruman Khan, Naser Khan and Sumit Bajaj to 10 years’ rigorous imprisonment and Rs 1 lakh fine each, a day after they were convicted of gangrape.

In case of non-payment of fine, the convicts will have to undergo a further imprisonment of six months each, the judge said while passing the order in camera.

The judge also sentenced Ruman and Naser to six months’ rigorous imprisonment under section 120B (criminal conspiracy) and section 323 (voluntarily causing hurt) each and a fine of Rs10,000 and Rs 5,000, respectively, from each of the two convicts, chief public prosecutor Sarbani Roy said.

All the terms would run concurrently. The court also directed that the fine amount, if realised from the convicts, would go to the two daughters of the victim.
