New Delhi: A Delhi court on Tuesday sentenced a married man, having four children, to seven years imprisonment for ravishing a minor girl.

Additional Sessions Judge Pratibha Rani also imposed a fine of Rs 10,000 on Kuldeep Tyagi after holding him guilty of rape under Section 376 of the IPC.

"The convict was already married and still he exploited a teenaged girl. He did not hesitate in obtaining consent of the girl despite having four children," the court said.

According to the prosecution, the victim, a resident of I P Estate here, was kidnapped by Tyagi on April nine, 2008, and enticed her to Shimla where she was made to establish physical relations with him.

The victim's father, who lodged a complaint with the police, alleging that he had received a ransom call from the convict demanding Rs 15 lakh for release of his 17-year-old daughter, could not prove it before the court as call detail records of his mobile did not support his charge.

The court relied upon the statement of the girl who deposed that she had left her home on the date to visit Connaught Place and was taken to Shimla by the convict.
