Days after the horrific tragedy of the Unnao rape victim, who was set ablaze by her alleged perpetrators while she was travelling to the court, another incident involving the rape victim being burnt alive has come to the fore. The incident pertains to Fatehpur district of Uttar Pradesh where an 18-year-old was raped and subsequently set on fire by her assaulter.

When OpIndia contacted the Hosainganj Police Station, the police confirmed that the accused named as Mevalal has been arrested under the charges of Section 376(rape) and 307(attempt to murder) of the Indian Penal Code. The police mentioned that the victim’s brother has filed a complaint against the accused and a probe has been ordered in the case.

On Friday night, a man living in the neighbourhood in the Husainganj area of Fatehpur raped the teenager. However, on Saturday morning, when the victim’s family was about to take her to file a complaint against the perpetrator, the assaulter poured Kerosene on the victim and set her ablaze. The victim sustained 90 per cent burns and was admitted to the district hospital. She was later transferred to the Lala Lajpat Rai Hospital in Kanpur and is currently in critical condition.
