Additional Sessions Judge Yogesh Khanna's order:

(a) Offence in the present case has been committed in an extremely brutal, grotesque, diabolical, revolting and thus dastardly manner so as to arouse intense and extreme indignation of society;
(b) Demonstration of exceptional depravity and extreme brutality;
(c) Extreme misery inflicted upon the prosecutrix before her death;
(d) Grave impact of the crime on social order

On the other hand, the mitigating circumstances, as alleged, are (a) the young age of the convict; (b) their socio economic status as also the plea of the reformatory approach and (c) their clean antecedents.

These circumstances, as alleged, have been dealt with by me in my earlier part of this order. The aggravating circumstances thus outweigh the mitigating circumstances. Now, I need to move to R-R Test to see if the case is covered under the bracket of rarest of rare case
