Three-year-old raped and murdered in Gurugram
Gurugram: A three-year-old girl who had gone missing from her home was found dead in Sector-66 on Monday morning. In a case that again put humanity to shame, the body of the girl was found in a naked state. The post-mortem later revealed that not only was the minor raped but tortured and then brutally murdered.
The forensic report mentions that after the rape her tormentor bludgeoned her to death. Moreover, a stick of about ten centimeters was inserted in her private parts. In the investigations, the Gururgam police has zeroed on the neighbour who has been stalking the girl for some time. As of now, no arrests have been made in the case.
A case has been registered under Section 376, 302 and section 4 of The Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act against unidentified people.
"This is an unfortunate incident that has happened. We will soon get hold of the culprits involved in the case and will make sure that the case reaches its logical conclusion," said a senior official from the Gurugram police. The girl's family hails from Bengal and was involved in menial works. The deceased often used to come out and play.
On Sunday morning at around 11 pm, however, she was kidnapped. This is not for the first time when brutal crimes against minors have been reported from Gururgam. In the 2017, a spate of rape and murder of minors shook the conscience of the city.
Gurugram along with its counterpart Faridabad is leading in terms of sexual crimes against minors. In 2017, there were 106 cases of sexual crimes against minors while in 2016 there were 115. Not only sexual crimes but the law enforcement officials also have to deal with increased cases of human trafficking.
Lack of infrastructure like the development of proper helpline has also increased the troubles for the victims. While difficulties of getting through the police helpline number of 100 are well documented as reported from some of the previous cases.
