A Delhi court on January 30 sentenced two men to 20 years in jail in the case of gang rape of a five-year-old girl in East Delhi in 2013.

The Delhi court also granted Rs 11 lakh as compensation to the survivor, who was given the name ‘Gudiya’ by the media after the incident.

Advocate HS Phoolka, appearing for the survivor, said he will appeal against the order in the high court and seek life imprisonment for the two convicts.

The court had on January 18 convicted Manoj Shah and Pradeep Kumar.

In the gruesome incident at Gandhi Nagar on April 15, 2013, the convicts had shoved objects in the victim’s private parts and abandoned her in a room, believing she was dead. The child was rescued 40 hours later on April 17.
