“The matter came to light when the girl returned home bleeding profusely from the abdomen and alerted her parents who rushed her to the nearby community health centre after informing the police. She was referred to Aligarh for further treatment. During the probe, our team found the blood-soaked blanket used in the rape and also the rope brought by the thieves to steal the buffaloes. A forensic has been assigned to collect samples from the accused and the victim,” said the police officer.

CO Jalesar Gurmeet Singh, who visited the survivor at Aligarh government hospital on Thursday, stated that the condition of the girl is now stable.” The victim was able to narrate the sequence of events. We will conduct an identification parade of the three accused,” said Gurmeet Singh.
