Ranchi: A special CBI court on Saturday sentenced a man to death for raping and murdering a 19-year-old BTech student at her home here three years ago.

Special CBI court judge A K Mishra had on Friday found Rahul Raj guilty of raping the student and killing her on December 15, 2016.

Pronouncing the quantum of punishment on Saturday, the court also slapped a fine of Rs 20,000 on the convict.
