A 16-year-old Dalit girl immolated herself in Jind district in Haryana on Saturday, soon after she had been raped by two youths.
Meanwhile, rattled by the series of sexual assaults against women at various places in the State, the Haryana government on Thursday formed a three-member committee at district level to investigate, monitor and ensure speedy prosecution of such crimes.Over two dozen cases of rape have been reported in the state in the past month.
After allegedly being raped by two youths in Narwana sub division of the district, the shocked girl sprinkled kerosene and set herself on fire, police said.
She was rushed to a civil hospital in Jind district, and was later referred to PGIMS at Rohtak in serious condition. The girl breathed her last this evening in the Rohtak hospital.
Today's incident adds to the series of such horrific crimes against women in Haryana during the past one month, and third alone in Jind. Earlier in the day, the victim in her statement to the police said that one of her neighbours Pradeep allegedly dragged her into his house, while the accused's sister-in-law kept guard standing on the terrace of the house so that nobody could come inside.
Pradeep and another youth Naveen raped the teenager.Another youth identified as Sanjeev also came to the room and bolted the door, but he did not rape the victim,according to her complaint.
In a state of shock, the girl went to her house and sprinkled kerosene on herself. According to police spokesman two persons were arrested shortly afterwards for their alleged involvement in the rape.
In all, four accused were involved in the incident including the two rapists and they all belonged to the Dalit community, he said.
Police said they have arrested two accused, the woman and Sanjeev after a FIR was registered against the four.The remaining two accused, who raped the girl, would also be arrested soon, he added.
Earlier, a rape incident took place in Hisar on September 9, where a Dalit teenage girl was gangraped in Dabra village. After the Dabra gangrape incident, a married woman was gangraped in a Jind village, a teenage girl was gangraped by some youths in Gohana in Sonepat district while another teenage girl was raped in a moving jeep in Bhiwani district.
A local court on Saturday sentenced a youth to ten years rigorous imprisonment for raping a girl along with his friend last year.
District and sessions judge Ramesh Jain also imposed a fine of Rs 11,000 on Ompal, after finding him guilty of raping a 14-year-old girl of his village Bahadurpur.
However, another accused Manjit, resident of Agwanpura of Sonipat district is still absconding, prosecution said. Both the accused had taken the girl to a veterinary hospital, where incident took place, prosecution said, adding,her father was badly beaten by the accused and was given threat of dire consequences if he files a case against them.
Following the complaint by victim's father, Ompal was arrested while Manjit fled after the incident, police said.
