The victim’s mother said that they had lodged a police complaint soon after the girl went missing. The family had sought the help of police after the accused demanded money from them for the second time. The mother said they did not get any police assistance.

“On Friday night we paid her (Ajoy’s mother) Rs 17,000 at the Chandrapur ISBT but she was not happy and warned us to pay the full amount if we wanted to get the girl back. In the meanwhile, we got to know their address and planned to reach them today. But early this morning we were informed that she had been set on fire and had been shifted to hospital,” the girl’s mother alleged.

“We immediately reported the matter to the police but they did not turn up. When we met her at the hospital, my daughter was in critical condition. She told us she had been repeatedly gang-raped for the past two months and was continuously tortured as we did not pay the ransom money. Finally, when Ajoy got to know that only Rs 17,000 had been paid, he became furious. And at night they set her on fire,” the girl’s mother claimed.

According to the victim’s statements to her mother, the accused Ajoy worked with a private company in Bengaluru and had come home to meet her. The mother added that everything was fine until her daughter went missing. She alleged that Ajoy and her mother started torturing and raped her daughter. She was not even given proper food and was told she would be killed if the entire ransom money was not paid, said the mother of the girl.
