Kohima: Four persons have been sentenced by a court in Dimapur for gang-raping a woman last year.
The Dimapur District and Session Judge, S Hukato Swu yesterday sentenced three persons to 15 years rigorous imprisonment for the gang-rape of the woman.
Another person who did not commit rape but acted with the common intention was awarded 10-years rigorous imprisonment by the District and Sessions Judge.
However, the prime accused, Manik Ali who incited the attack on the victim`s husband before rape was committed, is still absconding.
The 23-year old Naga woman was gang-raped by five immigrants on February 7, 2012 while returning home with her husband.
The husband was physically assaulted but managed to flee and inform the nearby colony residents.
