Two minors arrested in connection with the gang-rape of a telephone operator and a photojournalist in the Shakti Mills Complex last year were convicted by the Mumbai Juvenile Justice Board on Tuesday.
Earlier this year, a court had sentenced to death three people, convicted of repeat offences of gang-raping the telephone operator and the photojournalist in the Shakti Mills Complex here last year.
The Mumbai court had ordered the death sentence for the trio – Vijay Jadhav (18), Qasim Hafiz Sheikh, alias Qasim Bengali (20) and Salim Ansari (27).
The three men were found guilty and convicted for the gang-rape, wrongful restraint, criminal intimidation, conspiracy, common intent, unnatural sex, and sections of the Information Technology Act as the attackers had also made a video clip of the attack.
On July 31, and later on August 22 last year, an 18-year-old tele-operator and a 23-year-old photojournalist were gang-raped at the desolate mill compound in Lower Parel.
