Nine-year-old girl gang raped in city, dies at hospital

April 24, 2018

Mysuru: -A nine-year-old girl, who was allegedly gang raped by two persons, died at the hospital here yesterday.

It is learnt that the victim, a fourth standard student of Kesare was playing with her friends on Sunday and came home after sometime. The next day she complained of severe headache and her parents gave her a pain killer tablet.

Meanwhile, the girl vomited within a few minutes of her consuming the tablet and her parents rushed her to a private hospital, where the doctors who examined her told her parents that the girl has been sexually assaulted and told them to take her to K.R. Hospital.

When the parents rushed her to K.R. Hospital, the doctors who examined the girl told them that the girl had undergone severe bleeding and advised them to shift the girl to a private hospital as they did not have advance treatment facilities at the hospital. The parents then rushed the child to another hospital, but the doctors told them that the girl had died on her way to the hospital.

N.R. Police, who have booked a case under Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act (POCSO), have launched a hunt to nab the accused.

It may be mentioned that the incident took place within 48 hours of the Union Cabinet headed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi approved an ordinance to allow Courts to pronounce death penalty to those convicted of raping children up to 12 years of age on Saturday which was also approved by President Ram Nath Kovind.

    This is unacceptable that the hospitals claim they were under equipped to handle the rape situation. It’s also pathetic that rape is given an age number for the crime. Rape is a violation and a crime is a crime irrespective it requires stringent action.

  2. Wasim says:

    How such a big government hospital can claim that they don’t have advanced treatment and equipments ??? Then where should poor people go again it’s questioning our government

  3. Arunasseri says:

    Neither politics nor religions, this is a crime against a girl, the rapists should be punished, and it should be an example for others also. Our punishment system should change, in jail criminals get luxurious food and life, what about our school going children and normal people???

    If coming this issue is the primary focus, then, it is not difficult to fix this issue ! Catch the culprit and castrated him that is what the girls family should do for once!
    But in India all rapes are not equal some are secular rapes , also in the same category are the rapes conducted by politically influential group. If the accused is a dalit or a Muslim or Christian and the victim is a Hindu, than it is a secular rape! Then all the news media and police have to protect the accused ! On the contrary, if the suspect is a Hindu, then, it is a communal rape then, everybody should defend death penalty for the victims!
    So, police are confused as to what action to take hospital should figure out what to do before they initiate any treatment! May be it is Nalapad s relative! Why take chances

    These rapists are not humans, no one gets benefitted from them rather getting harmed, there should be capital punishment to them as soon as possible.
