A court here has sentenced a man to life imprisonment for attacking a teenage girl with a knife and causing serious injuries to her face after she resisted his molestation attempt.

A fine of Rs 15,000 was also imposed on the convict.

Special Public Prosecutor Vimal Kumar Rai on Thursday said Yashwant Singh had entered the house of a 16-year-old girl on July 12, 2021, and molested her. When she resisted, Singh, hit her several times on the face with the intention of killing her and caused serious injuries to her with a knife, he said.
