Minor girl raped and burnt alive in Uttar Pradesh, police arrests one Zeeshan who was the girl’s neighbour

The victim has allegedly suffered 70 per cent burns and has been referred to the Safdarjung hospital in Delhi.

In a shocking incident, a 16-year-old teenager was raped and thereafter set on fire by her neighbour in a township named Nakhasa in Uttar Pradesh’s Sambhal district, police said on Friday.

ASP AK Jaiswal confirmed that the accused, the victim’s neighbour named Zeeshan has been arrested and a case has been registered against him. The victim who suffered 70 per cent burns has been referred to the Safdarjung hospital in Delhi. The probe is on in the matter, said ASP.

The girl was alone at her house in Nakhasa police station area on Thursday when her neighbour, Zeeshan, allegedly raped her, Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP) Alok Jaiswal said. He later poured kerosene and set her ablaze, the ASP said, adding that she was rushed to the district hospital from where she was referred to Safdarjung hospital in Delhi.
