Thiruvananthapuram: A court here Thursday sent to the gallows an autorickshaw driver who raped a Class 10 student and murdered her in March 2012.

He was arrested a week after the incident.

After the verdict, the victim's mother told reporters: "Capital punishment is what the murderer deserved and we prayed for it also. He did not deserve anything less."
