Uttar Pradesh: Minor raped in Unnao

Minor Rape

Unnao, May 25: A nine-year-old girl was allegedly raped by a 25-year-old man in Uttar Pradesh’s Unnao on Thursday.

The minor girl, who was accompanying her mother to a river, went missing for a while, after which she was found in nearby bushes, covered in blood. The victim was immediately rushed to a hospital for medical examination, reports of which suggested that she was raped, news agency ANI reported.

According to the police, the accused has been arrested.

“We have registered the case and have arrested the accused. Further investigation is underway,” ANI quoted circle officer S.K. Singh as saying.

Unnao had recently come into the limelight, when BJP MLA, Kuldeep Sengar, was held last month by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on the charges of raping a minor.

In the recent past, a number of incidents related to sexual crimes against minor girls were reported from across the country.

An eight-year-old girl, who belonged to a nomadic Muslim tribe in Jammu and Kashmir’s Kathua, was allegedly kidnapped, drugged, gang-raped, tortured and killed in January.

Yet in a similar instance,  an infant below the age of one was allegedly raped and killed in Indore.

Taking cognisance of such crimes, President Ram Nath Kovind, on April 22, promulgated the Criminal Law (Amendment) Ordinance, 2018, for effective deterrence against the commission of rape.

The ordinance seeks the death penalty for the rapists of girls below 12 years of age and strict punishment for perpetrators of rape particularly of girls below 16 years.

In the last few days, India has seen a significant drop in daily cases, but there needs to be more evidence to suggest whether the nation has surpassed the virus’s peak or not. 

Maharashtra continues to be India’s worst-hit state with nearly 300,000 active cases and a death toll of 34,345. 

Meanwhile, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Thursday said he had been told by experts that the second wave of Covid-19 in the national capital has peaked.
