The verdict comes barely a week after Dhananjoy Chatterjee was hanged for raping and murdering a 14-year-old girl, Hetal Parekh, in Kolkata in 1990.

While giving his verdict, Judge Z K Sayed said that the crime was more heinous than the one for which Chatterjee was hanged, as the victim in the latest case was eight years younger.

On May 27, 2003, Kishen Marwari lured Gunni Solanki with the promise of buying her ice-candy. Instead, he took her to an isolated spot and raped and killed her.

He then cut of her feet, took the anklets and sold them in the market.

The judge, while giving his verdict, also took into consideration that he had cut of the girl's feet after murdering her.
