A nine-year-old girl was allegedly raped and murdered and her body forcibly cremated by her attackers in the capital city of our country. Along with three others, the police have detained a priest for investigation.
The 9-year-old, who belonged to an economically backward family lived with her parents in Purana Nangal in the Delhi Cantonment area. She went to the crematorium last evening to fetch drinking water from the cooler for her family but never came back home.
Around 6 pm, some locals who knew the cremation ground priest Radheshyam, called her mother to the crematorium and showed her the body. They told the mother that their daughter was electrocuted while drinking water from cooler.
As per the sources, her mother shared how her body had burn marks on her wrist and elbow. Her lips were also blue.
The priest & others influenced mother not to file case
The priest and his companions told the mother not to inform the police, because police would take their daughter’s body for post-mortem and, would steal her organs. They suggested her to cremate the body immediately. Later, the woman and her husband raised an alarm. Around 200 villagers of old Nangal village gathered at the crematorium and the police was informed.
While the police have detained the priest along with three others, the investigation is still on. The locals are holding a protest in the area demanding justice. There are many, who are pouring their heart out on internet.
At IFORHER, we are ashamed, broken and disgusted. We are just 10 days away from independence day and we are witnessing such heartbreaking news. How could we celebrate our freedom when our kids are becoming victims to sex-deprived monsters in broad daylight!
