The shocking murder of a 2.5-year-old girl Tina (name changed) for a paltry sum of money has shaken the country to its core. Now, Tina’s mother has come forth and alleged that one of co-accused Aslam had raped his own 4-year-old daughter earlier.
The mother of the deceased girl, Shilpa Sharma has accused one of the co-accused of having raped his own 4-year-old daughter after which his wife took their daughter to her parent’s home.
Shilpa Sharma has also pleaded PM Narendra Modi and Uttar Pradesh CM Yogi Adityanath to swiftly bring the perpetrators of this heinous crime to justice and asked for capital punishment for them.
Tina, resident of Tappal, Aligarh district, Uttar Pradesh, was choked to death by Zahid and Aslam over an argument with her family regarding a small loan amount of Rs 10000.
Zahid had brutally strangled Tina with a dupatta (scarf) and hid the body in his house in a straw bag. After three days when the corpse started emitting a foul odour, Zahid threw Tina’s body in a pile of trash. Tina’s body was completely decomposed with her eyes gouged out.
According to the post-mortem report, vital parts of Tina’s body are missing and the post-mortem report is inconclusive whether she was raped. However, the case will now be investigated under POCSO (Protection of Children against Sexual Offences) Act as well.
