The court has sentenced him to life for rape, robbery, criminal intimidation and trespass. The court has also slapped a penalty of Rs 12000 on him. The amount will be handed over to the victim as compensation.
The incident had taken place in the year 2013 when Nagesh was working as a labourer under a contractor who was in-charge of constructing a house for the daughter of the victim.
As per the charge sheet filed by the Mangalore Rural Police, Nagesh had entered the woman’s house while she was alone and raped her at knife point despite the 69 year woman pleading him against doing so by trying to make him understand that he was younger to her own children.
