As the judge announced the verdict, the mother of one of the convicts was seen yelling at him outside the court room, saying she will never forgive him.

The victim, a class-12 student, was returning from tuition around 7 pm when four men abducted her in a car on September 11, 2015. They took her to a forest behind Kalagram where they took turns to rape her, before leaving her there and fleeing.

She managed to return home around 11pm, and narrated the incident to her mother, who filed a complaint the next day.
