The five-year-old girl was playing with her friends when the 35-year-old uncle took her to his house in the neighborhood.
In yet another case of gruesome rape of a minor in UP, a Dalit girl was allegedly brutalized by her own uncle at Hazratpur village of Budaun district late on Tuesday. In order to hide his crime, the accused uncle even tried to apply Mobil oil to stop the little girl`s excessive bleeding.
The five-year-old girl was playing with her friends when the 35-year-old uncle took her to his house in the neighborhood. The family later came to know about the incident when the minor started complaining of severe pain in her lower abdomen. She was taken to a doctor who confirmed rape.
Senior cops ensured that the girl`s medico-legal was completed quickly and she was admitted to a hospital for treatment. The accused has been booked under the IPC sections of rape and the POCSO Act.
The girl`s family has been provided INR 3 lakh under a government beneficiary scheme as they are "very poor". "We have ensured that their ration card was made on a priority basis and a piece of farm land be provided on lease," district magistrate Kumar Prashant stated of the steps taken to placate the girl`s family.
As per Budaun SSP Sankalp Sharam ‘’the accused has been arrested and the girls is receiving proper treatment. Her condition is stable. She has been discharged from the hospital’’.
He further added that a circle officer will probe the case and a charge sheet is likely to be filed soon. ‘’We have sufficient evidence against the accused. We will ensure speedy trial in a fast-track court’’.
