6-year-old raped, killed; protesters beaten by cops

A six-year-old girl was allegedly raped and murdered in Nagla Kalar area in Aligarh on Thursday, sparking violent protests by locals and prompting police to use force in which at least seven persons were injured.

The minor girl went missing this morning and later her body was recovered at a garbage dump in Nagla Kalar area, police said. The victim’s family alleged that she was strangled to death after being sexually abused, they said.

The alleged rape and subsequent murder of the girl triggered protest in the area as scores of locals gathered at Banna Devi police station here and pelted stones. Police fired in the air and resorted to baton-charge to disperse the mob in which seven persons, including two women, were injured. Circle officer of the police station also allegedly thrashed women protesters.

Taking note of the baton-charge on women, as shown by some electronic channels, Additional Director General, Law and Order Arun Kumar ordered a probe into the matter and asked the DIG Aligarh Division Prakash D to submit his report within three days.

‘The report will cover lathi-charge on women by police and the entire incident. Action will be taken against policemen after the report,’ Kumar said.
