On Tuesday, on the day of Holi, a minor girl was brutally raped by a man in a village of Unnao. The police informed on Wednesday that the girl died of excessive bleeding. The victim was admitted at a hospital in Kanpur and the convict fled away after attempting to strangle her.
The police officer said, “The incident took place on Tuesday afternoon when Holi celebrations were going on. The girl was raped after which the rapist tried to kill her by throttling her neck.”
The girl became unconscious after the crime and the accused fled presuming that the girl had died. Some of the villagers saw her lying unconscious and they informed her parents.
“The girl was first taken to a primary health centre, from where she was taken to the district hospital. Owing to excessive bleeding, she was referred to Kanpur Hospital. However, it was during treatment that she succumbed to her injuries,” the officer further said.
The family of the girl have registered a complaint against the unknown person. However, the officer assured them that they would soon reach the rapist. Congress general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra has strongly condemned the Uttar Pradesh government for not taking enough steps to stop such crimes in the state.
In a tweet in Hindi, she asked, “Crime against children in UP have happened the most under the BJP regime. Do these incidents have no impact on the government. A nine-year-old girl was raped and she died during treatment. For how long will this keep going?”
