In a horrific incident, a 15-year-old girl, who had gone to answer nature’s call, was gang-raped and later burnt to death.
As per the police, when the teenager had gone to answer nature’s call on Thursday night, three youths of the same village caught hold of her. The trio then took the minor to an isolated place and outraged her modesty.
After raping the girl, the youths allegedly poured kerosene oil over her and set her on fire, reported news agency IANS.
The severely burnt girl somehow managed to reach her home and apprise her family of the incident. She also revealed the names of the culprits. She was admitted to a local hospital but later succumbed to the burns.
Locals identified the accused as Ishrar, Saddam, and Sahid Aalam. The police have arrested two of the accused while one managed to escape.
Bajrang Dal workers on Friday blocked the highway demanding the arrest of the third accused and death penalty for all the three.
The horrific incident was reported in Jharkhand’s Chatra district.
