The limits of brutality has been crossed in Noida when a 15-yr-old rape victim was set on fire alive on the terrace of her house, who later died in a city hospital.
The girl, a resident of Gautam Buddh Nagar, had suffered 95 percent burnt injuries and was admitted to Intensive Care Unit of Safdarjung hospital where she declared dead on Wednesday around 4.30 am.
“She was severely burnt with rare chances of arrival, the girl’s entire body was burnt except her face,” said a senior doctor.
The accused has been identified as Ajay Sharma (18) and was arrested from his house on charges of rape and an attempt to murder.
According to reports, the girl was forcibly taken to a secluded place by the accused who lives in the same village and was sexually assaulted. Last year, the girl also dropped out of school after the accused started stalking her.
“At about 2.30 am on Monday, Ajay came to meet my daughter. They met on the roof, where he raped her and set her ablaze. He fled from the spot,” said the victim’s father.
Her father also said that the accused was harassing his daughter for the last few months.
