A half-burnt body of a girl was discovered early morning yesterday (December 4, 2019) who was allegedly shot at a point blank range after being gang raped. Post-mortem reports reveal that the girl was in her early twenties and her face was charred beyond recognition.
The dead body was discovered by local people on the outskirts of Kukudha village on a farmland. The investigation falls under the jurisdiction of Itadhi police station. Her body was sent for post –mortem at the Buxar Sadar Hospital where the post-mortem report said that the private parts of the body were severely burnt and swabs for testing could not be recovered. But still, there was evidence to suggest that she was gang raped before being murdered. Medical reports revealed that she was not pregnant but appeared to be newlywed.
The investigation team says that the body was burnt to destroy evidence but the experts from the forensic department had collected clues from the crime scene. The police is still trying to determine whether she was murdered at the spot where the dead body was found or somewhere else. They are trying to verify the case with the reported persons who had gone missing, in and around the district.
The Chief Minister of Bihar is out on an election tour while crime is at a high and people are left to look after their own, said a member from an opposing party. The main point for consideration that arises after this case is whether what happened in Hyderabad will become a norm of rapists and criminals? If yes, how will the Government stop such incidents from happening? Are existing laws sufficient or do we need more stringent laws like Rajnath Singh, Defence Minister of India, in the Hyderabad case suggested? “We are ready for discussions in the House so that stringent provisions in laws could be explored to give punishment to those involved in such ghastly incidents,” he said while other members expressed rage over the mishap.
