The girl was kidnapped and killed in Kabul in March by two individuals who related to each other as cousin and had a shop near the house of the victim.
Kidnappers were demanding $300,000 from the father of the victim who was a money dealer. As they knew that police were after them, they killed her.
Her killing caused outcry with many calling for death penalty.
The duo were sentenced to imprisonment by a primary court after the jury heard from prosecutors, lawyers and defendants.
The judge said that the culprits had right to appeal the decision.
