A local court at Chandigarh in India has sentenced a 25-year-old navy man named Vijender Singh to imprisonment for 10 years for cheating and raping a woman under the pretext of marriage, according to a report in the newspaper The Tribune.

Vijender Singh has also been fined Rs 314,000 ($4,400), of which Rs 300,000 ($4,200) will be given to the victim.
