Srinagar: In what may bring some sense of closure to the family of school girl Tabinda Ghani who was brutally raped and murdered in 2007, a local court, Friday, sentenced all the four convicted in the case to death. A resident of Langate in Kupwara, Tabinda was 13 years old when she was subjected to the crime by the four men. While two - Sadiq Mir and Azhar Ahmad Mir - are residents of Langate, the other two were non-locals - Jahangir Ansari of West Bengal and Suresh Kumar of Rajasthan. Her family had pleaded the court to award them death sentence as the crime falls under �rarest of rare� category. The court, on April 18, had held all the accused guilty of murder, gang- rape, kidnapping with intention to kill and crime done with common intention. Tabinda�s murder had sent shockwaves across the valley. The anger had led to massive protests demanding justice.
