I couldn’t have raped the victim because she had died from fear – that was what Bangladeshi construction worker Pramanik Liton claimed in his defence.

The 24-year-old was on trial for the kidnap and rape of a female China national who was hiking at MacRitchie Reservoir on Feb 8 2015.

The glaring problem with Liton’s defence is: the victim is still alive and had just testified in court 2 days ago.

Liton was today sentenced to 17 years jail and 24 strokes of the cane for his brazen sexual attack that took place in broad daylight.

At around 1.45pm on the day of the incident, he forced his victim into a forested area of MacRitchie Reservoir at knifepoint.

There, he proceeded to rape her and force her to perform oral sex on him.

Liton was arrested 2 days after the rape.

Gurkha officers found a knife bearing his thumbprint in the forest, and his semen was also found on the victim’s panties and tissue paper recovered from the crime scene.

Liton has been convicted of two counts of aggravated rape, one count of sexual assault by penetration and one count of abduction for illicit intercourse.

For aggravated rape, he could have been sentenced to between eight and 20 years’ jail and at least 12 strokes of the cane.
