Hyderabad: Expressing concern at the rise in sexual assaults against women and even infants in recent times even after the enforcement of the Criminal Law (Amendment) Act, 2013, following rape case in Delhi, the Hyderabad High Court has upheld the life conviction of the convict who brutally killed a five-year-old after raping her in Toopran police station limits in 2011.

A division bench comprising Justice C.V. Nagarjuna Reddy and Justice D.V.S.S. Somayajulu while dismissing the appeal by Gaddamidi Bikshapathi challenging the life conviction awarded by the VI Additional District and sessions Judge, at Siddipet, observed that they hoped that the Criminal Law (Amendment) Act, 2013, would have a punitive effect on the “male monsters in the human form”.
