Indian girl, burnt alive after parents report her rape

The men allegedly raped her before letting her go home. Confirming the incident, Pakur Superintendent of Police Shailendra Prasad Burnwal said the accused has been arrested.

The incident took place in the Naxal-affected Chatra district of the state.

The accused men were ordered to do 100 sit-ups and pay a fine of Rs. 50,000 when the girl's father complained to the council head. They assaulted the victim's parents and set their house on fire with the help of friends, Ram said. The suspects then allegedly sought revenge on the girl and her family on Friday, May 4, by burning her alive.

A 17-year-old Indian girl was fighting for her life on Monday after being raped, doused in kerosene and set alight, the second such case to shake the country this week as it reels from a series of brutal sexual assaults.

The victim's neighbours rushed to the spot after they heard her screams, rescued her and took her to the Jangipur nursing home, police said.

The four accused of rape and murder have been booked under the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act (POCSO) Act, while Devi and Rajak were booked on charges of passing unlawful orders and tampering with evidence, according to Hindustan Times.

Indian demonstrators hold placards during a silent protest "Not In My Name" in support of rape victims following high profile cases in Jammu and Kashmir and Uttar Pradesh states in New Delhi on 15 April, 2018.

Authorities say several men attacked the girl Thursday, but things only got worse the next day when village leaders gathered to punish alleged gang leader Dhanu Singh Bhuiyan.

A case has been registered and a massive hunt has been launched to apprehend the culprit, the reports said.

There were 40,000 rape cases reported in India in 2016, the most recent year in which data is available.

One of them involves an eight-year-old Kashmiri Muslim girl who was gang raped, drugged and murdered in January. The government recently brought an ordinance to recommend death penalty for child rapists.
