Jamshedpur, Jharkhand: A local court Friday sentenced a 27-year-old-man to death for rape and murder of a four-and-half-year-old girl near here last year.

Additional District and Sessions Judge B K Sinha had convicted Sanjay alias Firangi Paswan in this case a week ago and pronounced the quantum of punishment during the day.

Paswan was known to the victim's family and the child used to address him as 'uncle'. He took the girl at a lonely place at Bagbeda in the outskirts of the steel city, raped her and then killed her with a stone on February 10, 2010, according to the prosecution.

The child's mother Meena Rajwar lodged a named FIR after her body was from a drain the next day.
