Drunk youths kill minor after gang-rape

Drunk youths kill minor after gang-rape
A fourth standard student was brutally killed after reportedly being gang-raped by three drunk youths in Uttar Pradesh’s Bareilly district, about 250 km from here.

The police on Sunday claimed to have arrested two of the three accused, who reportedly admitted to killing the Dalit girl after sexually assaulting her in the fields near Anandapur village in the district on Saturday.

The youths, who are residents of a nearby village, according to the police, also told the cops during their interrogation that they were drunk, when they committed the crime. One of the accused is still absconding and a manhunt has been launched to nab him, the police added.

Police sources said the minor had gone into the fields for collecting firewood, when the culprits caught hold of her and brutalised her.

The body of the victim was recovered a few hours later, after a search was launched by the family members and the local villagers.

Sources said the body bore injury marks on her chest, face and private parts. There were around half a dozen injury marks on the face only, they added. “It appears from the condition of the body that the child must have put up resistance,” said a district police official in Bareilly.
