In a shocking incident, a 15-year-old girl in Rajasthan was allegedly beaten, gang-raped and left to die. The incident took place last year on December 25th but came to light on Tuesday after the girl's father filed a FIR.
According to the complaint filed by the girl's father, a labour working in Alwar, the men, were known to the family. "I'm scared, I'm very scared. They've picked up one daughter. What if they pick up another? They're putting pressure on me and the child," the girl's father said.
According to the complaint, his elder daughter who is studying 12th class, was taken by two men, Rakesh and Naresh Bhargava. The girl knew both of the accused. They took the girl to a spot which is 2 km away from the village.
They took turns to rape her. When the girl resisted, they beat her and drove their bike over her. They even threatened to kill her if she tells anyone.
The girl sustained very serious injuries in her spine.She was admitted in a Jaipur hospital. Doctors said, "it might take a very long time to heal."
"There was the injury to her spine, so she has paraplegia, which means the lower portion of her body has been paralysed," said Dr Mrinal Joshi of SMS Hospital. "She has no control over bowel or bladder movements. She's out of danger and stable, but the injury is serious and will take the time to heal."
After the FIR was filed, police tracked both the accused and arrested them. Police are yet to question them.
"We can only determine the motive after an interrogation," said Hanuman Bhati, a senior officer of the local police.
