Bundi: A 30-year-old man was sentenced to life imprisonment by the Schedule Caste and Schedule Tribe Court on Wednesday.

Kamal Sharma was booked under section 376 (Rape) of IPC and under relevant sections of SC/ST Act in April 2013.

District Judge Ramesh Chand Meena, who is also currently holding the charge of SC/ST Special Court, pronounced the judgement today and sentenced Sharma, a resident of Kaperan town of the district, to life imprisonment.

Sharma was arrested in April last year for raping a married woman of Meena community in the town. He was lodged in the jail since then as he was not granted bail during the trail.
