13 year old girl gang raped, murdered in Uttar Pradesh

A 13 year old girl was gang raped and murdered in Uttar Pradesh’s Lakhimpur Kheri district on Friday. The girl’s body was found in the sugercane field owned by one of the rape accused.

According to reports, the girl had gone missing on Friday afternoon.

The victim’s father said his daughter had been strangled. Her eyes had been gouged out and her tongue was cut, the girl’s father alleged. While the police have arrested two men from the village for their alleged involvement in the case, a relative of the girl said three people were involved in the crime, India Today reported. 

Denying the family’s claim, Lakhimpur Kheri SP Satendra Kumar while talking to India Today said there was nothing in the post-mortem report that would suggest that the 13-year-old’s eyes were gouged out or tongue was cut. “There were scratches near her eyes which could be due to the sugarcane leaves. Her tongue was not cut,” the SP said.

However, the minor girl’s postmortem reports confirmed rape. Police have registered a case of murder and gang rape against the two accused. The two accused will also be charged under the National Security Act, Lakhimpur Kheri SP Satendra Kumar told India Today TV.

Bhim Army chief Chandra Shekhar Aazad condemned the incident on twitter and said that Dalit oppression is at its peak under the BJP government. He called for the UP Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath to resign.

“Dalit oppression is at the peak in the BJP government…If it is not the Jungle Raj, then what is it called? Our daughters are not safe, our homes are not safe, there is an atmosphere of fear everywhere. Yogi resign,” Shekhar tweeted.
