NEW DELHI: A 16-year-old girl, who was allegedly raped and set ablaze by a youth in Greater Noida, has succumbed to her injuries.
The girl had suffered over 95 per cent burns and was fighting for her life at Safdarjung Hospital in Delhi following the incident that occurred on Monday in Tigri village in Greater Noida West.
he girl died in the wee hours, a senior doctor said.
The accused, aged 18 years, has been taken into custody. He was a neighbour of the victim's family and, according to her father, had become friendly with her.
Police said the youth allegedly went to the girl's house and met her on the roof where he raped her and set her ablaze. He then fled the spot.
The incident, which occurred on the eve of International Women's Day, is yet another in a chain of crimes against women in Delhi and the National Capital Region (NCR) zone, where the Nirbhaya gangrape case of 2012 had led to nationwide outrage and a revision of rape laws.
haha he is 18 years and that pig will be served as juvenile and will be fed by the tax payers money.. shame on the police . that pig also deserves the same punishment.. burn him alive.. and our kujliwala will give him 10000 and a sewing machine
This time the new law should apply but on the otherhand, Kejriwal is capable of anything.... big promises of women's safety and he encouraged rapists by rewarding them
The accused should be put to trial and sentenced to death. He should be a lesson to all who think raping a girl is their birth right.
yes I too think so. burn him alive.
Now he should be treated like a murderer.. and dealt accordingly...
Now this kid will be tried as a Juvenile, given money and a sewing machine which he will sell and rape again
Publicly hang him
May her soul rest on peace. The beast who did it should be locked up for life in a 4 by4 ft cell and the keys thrown away.
