A UP court here on Friday awarded death sentence to two people in connection with a four-year-old rape and murder case.
Umakant (32) and Murari Lal (24) were held guilty of raping and murdering a minor Dalit girl on January 26, 2016 in the Nawabganj area.
The girl who had gone missing was found murdered in an agriculture field by her family, Government counsel Reet Ram Rajput said.

The court had reserved the order on Wednesday, the counsel added.
