Additional Sessions Judge M.C. Gupta awarded the jail term to Bablu, 26, after holding him guilty of kidnapping, wrongfully confining and raping the child four years ago and slapped a fine of Rs.20,000.
"I am of the considered opinion that the ends of justice can be met by sentencing Bablu to undergo rigorous imprisonment for a period of 10 years under Section 376 IPC (rape)," the court said.
The rape was committed on the intervening night of May 24-25, 2009.
