In a heartbreaking incident, a 9-year-old girl was raped and murdered on the day of Holi in Unnao, Uttar Pradesh. Now her postmortem report has revealed that she was sexually assaulted in a brutal fashion.
As per the report, the 9-year-old has over two dozen injury marks on her body and her intestines completely ruptured.
According to the doctors, the girl died of strangulation and excessive bleeding.
Based on the reports, the girl, a resident of Shuklakhera village in Unnao was raped by an unidentified man as the village was busy with Holi celebrations on Tuesday. When some villagers found the girl lying in a critical condition in the field, they informed her family.
While sharing the details, Jyoti Narayan, Inspector General of Police (Law and Order), Uttar Pradesh shared:
“A minor girl died while receiving treatment at a hospital where she was admitted after being allegedly raped in Bihar police station limits on March 10. An FIR has been registered, an investigation is being done,”
Heartbroken with how brutally their daughter was assaulted and killed, the family initially refused to accept the body and demanded that the culprit should the hanged or shot dead like what happened in Telangana.
The family refused to conduct the last rites of their daughter till UP chief minister Yogi Adityanath assured them of strict and swift action against the guilty.
After being assured by some senior government officers, the family conducted her last rites.
Though the police have registered a case, they have not been able to identify the culprit yet. As per Indiatimes, N Sabat, ADG Lucknow Zone said shared:
“Prima facie, it seems a villager or known person has committed the crime. However, we are not clear yet,”
The cops are pinning their hopes on a DNA test on skin and hair strands recovered from the victim’s nails to identify the culprit.
It is heart-wrenching to see how a sex-deprived monster has brutally assaulted this 9-year-old. It is impossible for any of us to even imagine the pain this little angel went through.
We hang our heads in shame as our society once again failed a young girl and her family.
While we are praying for her soul to rest in peace, we wonder if she and her family will ever get justice? And, if they do how long they have to wait before they see the culprit of their daughter behind bars?
