In a shocking incident, a school girl died after she was allegedly raped and then set on fire by the rapist in the Dildarnagar police station area.
As per the reports, the incident took place on Friday night when the accused, who is victim’s neighbour, barged in house and allegedly raped her while she was sleeping.
Superintendent of Police Arvind Kumar Chaturvedi said that the accused man later poured kerosene on the teen girl, set her on fire and fled.
The girl was rushed to hospital where she succumbed to injuries.
On the complaint of her brother, a case has been registered. The matter is under probe and efforts are being made to nab the accused.
In another rape case reported from UP, a rape survivor hanged herself to death after the accused was given clean chit from police.
The victim had registered a case against the rapists in August last year. The case that was initially investigated by the police was later shifted to the crime branch.
According to the police, the two investigation officers were suspended after the suicide took place.
