Though on medical examination of the victim no sign a rape was found and though no mark of violence was noticed on the body of the victim,inview of the entire evidence on record it appears that the victim was raped by the appellant. So, the learned Judge committed no illegality in convicting the appellant as1995.

Sections 6(1), 9(kha) and 9(Ga)—Without appreciating the narajee petition and without any speaking order accepted the Police report by the Nari-O-Shishu Nirjatan Daman Bishes Adalat cannot be sustained.

The High Court Division observed that the informant categorically narrated the manner of occurrence as well-as the manner of committing rape by the accused and the Police during investigation in its report merely stated that there is no eye witness to the occurrence. But the informant in his narajee petition categorically stated that the Police without visiting the place of occurrence without examining the eye witnesses most illegally submitted a perfunctory final  report.

Mr. Khorshed Alam Khan, the learned Advocate for the accused-appellants has made submissions to the effect also that the condemned accused-appellant is a young

man of 27 years only and he is being detained in considering this fact as an extenuating circumstances his death sentence may be now commuted to imprisonment of life for the ends of justice. But consideritua the very nature of the offence which is heinous, ghastly arid barbaric act of rape and murde committed upon a 16 years old girl we are of the opinion that justice will be denied if the death .sentence of the accused Appellant Rakibor Okibor is commuted to imprisonment for life. law has provided death sentence for some offences (Para14).

Nari-O-Shishu Nirjatan (Bishes Bidhan)Ain,1995 (Section 8( 1)

Morality cannot be legislated but behaviour can be regulated. Judicial decrees may not mctrality cannot he legislated, the heart, but they can restrain the heartless. The Appellate Division observed that the change h Court Division noticed that P.W.6 Abdul Baset is not the full brother of P.W.2, Nazma and that PW7 Asia Begum is not the mother of the victim; rather P.W.7 is the step mother of the victim. With reference to the affidavit filed by the petitioners, the High Court Division found that the petitioners Tried to impress upon that the victim of her own volition went to the brothel but that the said affidavit was neither properly exhibited nor was it filed in the trial Court and that the victim denied making any affidavit. The High Court Division having considered the evidence of doctor, P.W.9 and the medical report, exhibit-1 found that the age of the victim was about 17 years on the date of her examination and that the victim in her evidence claimed that she was about 13 or 14 years old. The finding of the doctor as to age is belied by the fact that his report shows the taking place of menarche one year back. In context of development of girls in Bangladesh the age stated by the victim would be more commensurate with menarche having started one year previously. The accused-petitioners having no morality could dare to sell the Victim PW2 Nazma to a brothel. They were convicted under section 8(1) of the Nari-O-Shishu Nirjatan (Bishesh Bidhan) Ain,1995 and sentenced them to suffer imprisonment for life. The order of conviction and sentence was rightly affirmed by the High Court Division. Accordingly, criminal petition for leave to appeal is dismissed.

Sections 9(1)(4) (kha)—Medical report is very much consistent with an attempt of rape by the accused  upon the victim and if we consider the whole evidence altogether we find that the accused should have been convicted and sentenced under section 9(4)(Kha) of the Ain for taking attempt to commit rape on the victim. The accused should have been convicted under sections 9 (4)kha) of the Ain for taking an attempt to commit rape on the victim at the time of occurrence instead of conviction under section 9(1) of the Ain.
