The family of the 23-year-old Dalit woman who was raped, murdered and mutilated in Haryana’s Rohtak, said on Sunday that a threat to the victim’s safety had been reported to the police, who chose to ignore it. The police had been informed about how one of the accused, Sumit, had threatened her when she turned down his frequent proposals to marry him.

The family said the police was informed about this, but that there was no response from them. The police said the complaint was made only verbally. They said the mother of the victim had later approached the police and said that a compromise was struck with the accused.

The autopsy report of the victim showed that her bones were crushed in the assault, her skull shattered to pieces and sharp objects had been inserted in her private parts. Politicians from all political parties had made their presence felt at the house of the victim on Saturday. The government said that a sum of Rs 10.50 lakh will be given to the family of the victim.

The family has revealed the names of more people in the crime. A special team has been set up to investigate the case. The police and the family suspect the involvement of six more people. Apart from Sumit, another accused, Vikas, has been arrested.

A 10-year-old girl is currently undergoing treatment after being raped for months by her stepfather in Rohtak, the same area where the 23-year-old woman’s mutilated body was found. The girl is now admitted to a local hospital. The mother of the victim, a migrant from Bihar who is now staying in Rohtak, had taken the girl to a doctor, who informed her that the 10-year-old is five-month pregnant. The police have arrested the stepfather.
