Hathras gang rape

On September 14, the victim had visited her farm to collect fodder when she was attacked by a group of men. The teenager was dragged by a dupatta around her neck, causing the spinal injuries, to a field where she was raped and then choked.

The accused were nabbed on Saturday, who had tried to strangulate her to death as she resisted them. In the process, she had ended up biting her tongue and suffering a severe cut on it, police had said.

The 19-year-old died in Safdarjung Hospital on Tuesday, a fortnight after the brutal rape. The victim was brought to Safdarjung Hospital on Monday from Aligarh Muslim University Medical College. In her statement to the police, the victim had named four accused, stating that they had gang-raped her. All the four accused, namely Sandeep, Luvkush, Ravi and Ramu have been arrested by the police. The police had denied the media reports of brutality on the victim, which claimed that her eyes were gouged out and tongue was cut.

SHO of Chandra police station, under whose jurisdiction the incident happened, has been transferred after allegations of delay and negligence.
