A court in Bulandshahr district of Uttar Pradesh on Wednesday sentenced three persons to death for killing three children, aged between seven and nine, more than four years ago.
The convicts were Bilal, Imran and Salman.
Additional sessions judge Manu Kalia sentenced them to death for killing Aliba (7), Asma (9) and Abdul Rehman (8) in the Faislabad area of Bulandshahr, government counsel Vijay Kumar Sharma said.
The court also imposed a fine of Rs 1.72 lakh on each of the convicts.
