In a much awaited judgment, a Rajasthan court on Saturday awarded death sentence to a 19-year-old youth for raping a seven-month-old baby earlier this year.

This is the first capital punishment order by a Rajasthan court after the state legislative assembly in March this year passed a bill approving death penalty to those convicted of raping or gang-raping a girl below 12 years of age.
