In a petrifying incident, Haryana Police on Saturday recovered the mutilated body of a 15-year-old Dalit girl who was reported missing from Kurukshetra on January 9.
The girl was a Class 10 student from Jhansa village of Kurukshetra.
Police said that the victim was subjected to brutality, torture and gangraped by the criminals.
The main suspect in the rape and murder of the 15-year-old Dalit girl was a Class 12 student who has been found dead in Kurukshetra, Haryana.
RC Mishra, Additional Director General of Police (ADGP), Ambala Range, on suspected accused said, "We are investigating and scanning all CCTV cameras in the area. All people related to the case are being interrogated. After we receive FSL report, we can make a further comment.
In a disappointing and irresponsible relay of information, ADGP Mishra said, 'Rapes are part of society.
Half naked body of a girl reported missing from Kurukshetra has been recovered from Rajwaha, near Budhakheda village. We have registered a case against the unidentified persons and the investigation is on," SSP Arun Kumar said earlier.
The Dalit girl who was gangraped belonged to Jind district. Efforts were made to get rid of her body by throwing it into a canal.
The victim's private parts were also attacked and mutilated with a pointed weapon.
The victim was raped by more than one person and a pointed object was inserted inside her private part. There are multiple injuries on her body," head of Forensic Science Department, Dr SK Dhattarwal said.
She had left home for tuition on January 9. A police complaint was made in Jhansa Police Station by the girl's father.
The opposition Congress today demanded the dismissal of the ML Khattar government in Haryana, alleging a complete breakdown of law and order in the state after two minor Dalit girls were allegedly raped and murdered in separate incidents.
A Congress delegation, led by former Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda, submitted a memorandum to the Governor today and sought the imposition of Presidents Rule in the state.
The Congress leaders expressed deep concern over the recent incidents of rape-and-murder and "rising crime graph" in the state.
In the memorandum, the Congress alleged that the citizens are feeling insecure.
Law and order has collapsed in the state and criminals have neither fear of government nor law. This government is directionless and has failed to ensure safety and security of its citizens. A progressive state is fast turning into crime hub," according to the memorandum.
It further said, "many gangsters from UP are now turning to Haryana considering it as safe zone.
Senior Congress leader Randeep Singh Surjewala said that on an average, a rape and a murder happen in Haryana every eight hours.
I think it is time that crime prevention and crime control is taken seriously by the chief minister, who is also the Home Minister of the state," he said.
It is an issue about the safety of the girl child and women. People in Delhi are as much affected by the growing crime incidents in Haryana as anywhere else, so I think Government of India should also take stock of this deteriorating situation and call the chief minister and reprimand him, if necessary," Surjewala said.
