Nirbhaya revisited: Girl gangraped, mutilated

In a replay of the December 16 Delhi gangrape, a 23-year-old girl was gangraped by seven men and brutally murdered with her mutilated body found on the outskirts of Rohtak district on Saturday. Two of the accused, one her stalker Sumit and his friend Vikas, have been arrested even as further probes are on.

Haryana Police officials said stray dogs had bitten off parts of the victim’s body. She had gone  missing on May 9.

SK Dhattarwal, Head of the Department of Forensic Medicine at the Postgraduate Institute of Medical Sciences (PGIMS), Rohtak, said the post-mortem examination of the victim’s body indicated sexual assault, mutilation of private parts and murder. According to police, the victim’s head and face were smashed with a heavy object and crushed under the wheels to erase her physical identity.

Police said Sumit was a neighbour of the victim in Sonipat and had been stalking her for long and he was pressurising her to marry him but she had refused. Sumit planned the gangrape and murder to teach her a lesson with his friends, said police.
