(ANI): A teenaged girl has died in a Rohtak hospital from severe burns. According to reports, the girl had immolated herself after she was allegedly gang raped by her neighbours.
The victim’s relatives said that three persons were involved in the gangrape.
The victim was driven to suicide, while the main accused are yet to be arrested.
Saurabh Singh, Superintendent of Police, Jind, said, “We have registered FIR No. 223 on the statement of the 16-year-old. In the course of investigations, police arrested two of the accused who were fleeing towards the fields. Police have created teams to nab the chief accused.”
In past one month, several such heinous crimes have been reported from Haryana, and in most cases, action was taken only after sustained media pressure.
Haryana’s Director General of Police Ranjiv Singh Dalal blamed the media for being overtly aggresive in their questioning of the law enforcement authorities, adding that the media acts on cases without properly ascertaining facts. (ANI)
