The girl's adopted father - the brother of the child's biological mother - said life imprisonment to the accused was not enough and exemplary punishment should be given to them.

The suspect, a auto mechanic and a neighbour of the victim's family, allegedly lured the child into the toilet of a nearby school and raped her there. "We must salute the crime branch for conducting the investigations in a professional manner".

The three main convicts in the rape and murder of an eight-year-old nomadic girl in Kathua have been awarded life imprisonment.

The case saw straining of ties between PDP and BJP alliance government but as investigators in the case, Jalla said he "had received not a single call from any of the BJP leaders".

Taking to micro-blogging site Twitter, former chief minister and National Conference (NC) vice-president Omar Abdullah tweeted, "Amen to that".

Shah Faesal said that politicization of this rape case was one of the most horrendous and shameful incidents of our time and those people who raised the communal bogey against the victim's family deserve to be condemned. Advocates say the majority of rape cases remain unreported. Trial of a juvenile will be held separately.

The quantum of punishment will be pronounced at 2 p.m. The seventh man, named as Vishal, was found not guilty on Monday, Farooqi said, while the eighth, a juvenile, is now awaiting trial. However, the judgment is still being read out. The court moved the trial to the neighbouring state of Punjab.
