Three men who murdered an eight-year-old girl after raping and torturing her for days in India are spared the death penalty and sentenced to life in prison
Three men who raped and murdered an eight-year-old girl in a case which sparked outrage across India have been spared the death penalty.
The Muslim girl, Asifa Bano, was drugged, held captive in a Hindu temple and sexually assaulted for a week before being strangled and battered to death with a stone in Indian-controlled Kashmir.
Prosecutors had asked for the three attackers to be executed but they were today sentenced to prison for life instead.

Hope the death sentence is carried out. What is in certain men's psyche that thinks this is okay? It's the world over.

This poor wee mite, I hope she rests in peace. It is unthinkable what she must have been put through by these so called men. These are not real men, they are filthy disgusting excuses. They should be put to death.
