‘Save me, I don’t want to die, want to see them sentenced to death’: Unnao rape victim dies of cardiac arrest after suffering 90% burns

The 23-year-old Unnao rape survivor, who was burnt alive by the five accused in Sindupur village in Unnao district on Thursday, had told her family that she did not want to die but wished to see the accused sentenced to death, reports India Today.

“Usne kaha ki bhahiya mujhe bacha lo, mujhe marna nahi hai. Jinhonne mere sath ye kiya hai, unhe mai maut ki saza paatey dekhna chahti hu [she told me that brother, please save me, I don’t want to die. Those who have done this to me, I want to see them getting a death sentence]” the brother of rape survivor told India Today TV.

The victim was attacked on early hours of Thursday by the accused when she along with her family were on their way to a court in Rae Bareli to attend a hearing in the rape case. The five men also included the two who were accused of raping the woman in December.

The rape accused and his friends dragged the woman outside of her village, took her into the fields and doused her in petrol before setting her on fire. She was raped by the five men in March while the police could manage to arrest only three of them and two others were still on the run.

Reportedly, the rape victim survivor was going to Raebareli with her parents to pursue the case at 4 am on Wednesday when she was attacked. The survivor was immediately rushed to the district hospital and then referred to Civil Hospital in Lucknow after her condition deteriorated.

All the five accused, including Hari Shankar Trivedi, Shivam and Shubham Trivedi, have been arrested by the Uttar Pradesh police.

The death of the Unnao rape victim comes at a time when there is a raging debate regarding the failure of the justice delivery system in the country leading to situations similar to Hyderabad encounter in which the police officials encountered the four accused who had raped and murdered the 27-year-old veterinary doctor.
