In the 2015 rape case of a nun in Nadia, Kolkata sessions court today convicted a Bangladeshi man for raping the nun in West Bengal's Ranaghat during a dacoity at a convent.

Additional Sessions Judge Kumkum Sinha termed the incident as a matter of shame in a state where Sister Nivedita and Mother Teresa had worked for the people. The quantum of punishment will be declared on Wednesday. Noting that the charge of gangrape was not established, the judge said only Nazrul Islam was found guilty of rape.
