Shelter home inmate gang-raped, killed

In a shocking incident an inmate of a women's shelter home in Uttar Pradesh's Kanpur town, about 90 km from here, was killed after allegedly being gang-raped.

According to the police sources here, the 28-year-old victim was brutalized before being hacked to death by the perpetrators. ''The body of the victim bore injury marks at several places,'' said a doctor, who was part of the team which conducted the autopsy.

Sources said that the woman had been brought at a government hospital on Tuesday night by some employees of the shelter home. They told the doctors that she was a mental patient and had fits.

The docs, however, said that the woman was dead when she was brought at the hospital. They sent her body for postmortem examination.

The autopsy report on Thursday revealed that she had been gang-raped before being strangled. Three employees of the shelter home have been detained by the police in this connection, sources said.
