In a shocking reminder of the 2012 Nirbhaya gang-rape case, another woman was brutally gang-raped, with her body found mutilated in Rohtak.
This shocking incident comes just after the Supreme Court upheld the death sentence for the accused in the Nirbhaya case.
The incident occurred on May 9 when the victim was on her way to work. The episode came to the limelight when the girl’s body was found in an empty plot in Rohtak city’s IMT area.
The post-mortem report suggested that the victim was first gang-raped and her private parts were mutilated with a sharp-edged weapon. The culprits even tried to run over her in an attempt to hide her identity.
“The victim was tortured and her body was mutilated and tortured after the gang-rape. She was killed after being raped by at least seven people. Her skull was smashed in a way which indicates that she was run over by a vehicle in order to hide her identity,” the forensic team stated.
As per preliminary information, the victim had allegedly refused a marriage proposal, following which the accused reached her home a week later with his friends. A heated argument broke out from both the sides following which the woman ended up slapping him. According to the sources, the forensic team has also found drugs in her viscera samples.
In revenge, the accused along with his friends allegedly raped and murdered her.
The victim’s family alleged that the accused along with six other people abducted the girl from the gate of a private company. Later, they took her to a deserted place and gang-raped her.
The girl’s mother said that the accused was pressurising the woman for marriage for past one year.
“I can’t imagine what they did to my daughter. I want all the culprits to be hanged,” the victim’s father said.
