A Cumilla tribunal on Tuesday sentenced a youth to death for killing a third-grader after rape in 2019.

The victim's father lodged a case with Chauddagram Police Station as the plaintiff.

Following the case, police conducted drives and arrested Bappi suspecting his movement. During interrogation, Bappi admitted his guilt saying that he lured the child saying that he will giver her snacks to eat and took her to his empty room where he violated the child.

After violating her,  he strangled the girl to death with her scarf and dumped the body in the river.
