Lust may turn a man into a rapist, but religion pushes him into a murder.six-year-old the girl was gang-raped and murdered by two minor brothers in Uttar Pradesh’s Lakhimpur Kheri district, police said on Thursday.
The victim was a student of Class 1, had gone missing on Tuesday afternoon. She was last seen playing near the house of the accused. When the girl did not return home, her family tried to search for her and later approached the police, who launched a massive manhunt.
The girl’s body was found on Wednesday after the mother of the accused confessed to the police that she had helped her sons dump the body when she found they had strangled her to death. We mute the realization of malevolence- which is too threatening to bear – by turning offenders into victims themselves and by describing their behaviour as the result of forces beyond their control.
The accused, aged 15 and 12 years, are Dalits and school dropouts. While their parents are labourers, they are currently working as rag pickers. The accused have confessed to having sexually assaulted the minor girl.
Police have taken the brothers and their mother into custody and have registered an FIR against all three, under sections 302 (murder) and 201 (causing the disappearance of evidence) of the Indian Penal Code and Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act. Think twice before raping a woman, she may be your mother, sister or friend, and you know the consequences that follow but who cares.
