A 14-year-old girl was gang-raped and later set ablaze by three people on the terrace of her house in Rawla town of Sri Ganganagar on Friday.

According to the police, an aunt who lives in the same neighbourhood saw the child burning and rushed her to a local hospital. She was later shifted to a government hospital in Bikaner.

According to the girl’s statement, the accused entered her house around 11 pm and raped her. They returned at 5 am, dragged her to the terrace and set her on fire by pouring kerosene. “The three youths who were on the rooftop of an adjacent house climbed over to her terrace and gang-raped the child,” the police said.
