Neighbourhood News Desk/Avi Arya: Medical examination of a 15-year-old Dalit girl, whose half-naked body was found from the bank of a water channel in Haryana’s Jind district on Saturday evening, has indicated that she suffered Nirbhaya-like brutalities. She was gang-raped as well as brutalised by her assailants, who inserted a foreign object into her private parts which caused massive internal injuries.
Kurukshetra SP Abhishek Garg said an SIT under a DSP and four more squads were formed to arrest the accused. In Kurukshetra, the teen’s family refused to accept her body for cremation. Demanded that the case be handed to the CBI, a government job for a member of her family, Rs 50 lakh from the Nirbhaya Fund, two arms licences. Only after Haryana minister KK Bedi assured them a time-bound probe and release of compensation, family received the body for cremation.
