13-year-old Dalit girl from Delhi raped, murdered in Gurugram by landlord’s relative
The victim’s father alleged his landlord’s family pressured him to cremate the body of her daughter after shifting it to Delhi from Gurugram.
New Delhi: A yet another brutal rape and murder has taken place in Gurugram district of Haryana neighbouring Delhi. A 13-year-old Dalit girl from the national capital was raped and murdered allegedly by her landlord’s relative.
Police say they have arrested the relative and are also probing the landlord and his wife’s involvement in the crime. The accused has been identified as Praveen, who has been arrested.
The victim’s father said the accused had told him that his daughter died of illness and pressured him to perform her last rites, according to a report in Indian Express.
However, their neighbours intervened and stopped the cremation and urged the father of the deceased to inform the police.
The autopsy report of the victim has indicated that she was raped and suffered injuries on her face and private parts.
According to the victim’s father, their landlord, who was ‘close’ to the family, urged him to send his daughter to Praveen’s place in Gurugram for work.
“The landlord’s wife told me that her brother had a younger daughter and my daughter can play with her and stay with the family for some time. She took her on July 17,” the report said quoting from the FIR.
On August 23, the victim’s father got a call from his landlord saying his daughter died of food poisoning. Few hours later, her body was brought to Delhi in a private ambulance by the accused Praveen, the landlord’s wife and two others.
