In a horrifying incident, a five-year-old girl was raped and tortured to death using a 24-cm wooden stick- which was found inserted in her private parts in Hisar’s Uklana village on Saturday.
Initial probe reveals that the victim was abducted from her house at night, brutally raped and left to die with a wooden stick inserted into her genitals.
The post mortem confirms rape and torture , further telling that 16cm of the stick was found inside her- that damaged her uterus and intestines.
Dr Reetu Gupta, who conducted the post mortem said, “The victim died due to the torture perpetrated by inserting wooden stick into her private parts. The stick was inserted with force which not only caused serious injuries inside uterus but also in the intestine.”
The report also reads that bruises were found on the victim’s shoulders, waist and nose. The girl was also found bleeding from her neck.
The incident came to light after the family of the minor raised an alarm over not finding her at home in the morning. That is when, a local intimated them about a body lying in a pool of blood, some meters away from their residence.
The villagers are now protesting against the ghastly act and are demanding immediate action from the police. As a sign of protest, they have shut down all shops and blocked major roads.
The family of the victim has also refused to cremate the body until the culprit/s are arrested.
Not ruling out gangrape, the police has now formed an SIT (Special Investigating Team) including forensic experts to nab the accused.
An FIR has been registered of abduction, rape, murder against unknown persons.
