Special CBI court convicts Ranchi rape-murder accused after swift trial

A special CBI court in Ranchi today convicted the main accused in the rape-and-murder case of an engineering student, after a swift trial.

Officials said, the trial was completed in a little over a month.

The CBI nailed Rahul Raj, who had absconded after the crime on the night of December 15-16, 2016, and used a number of aliases, using DNA lineage of his parents which matched with the sample found on the victim’s body and nails.

A spokesperson of the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) said that Special CBI Judge AK Mishra found Raj guilty of the rape and murder of the victim, who was a fourth-semester engineering student in a college located in the Ormanjhi area of Ranchi.

He said, the quantum of punishment will be pronounced tomorrow.
