Dalit girl sexually assaulted


Hardoi: A day after Samajwadi Party supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav made shocking comments on rape, a 13-year-old Dalit girl was killed after being allegedly sexually assaulted, with the attackers brutally stabbing her eyes and private parts while she had gone out of her house here, police said on Thursday.

The girl had stepped out of her house to buy medicine for her father when the incident happened, police said.

Her body with stab marks on her eyes and private parts was found yesterday from a field under Sursa police station area, they said.

The body has been sent for post-mortem examination, police added.

The SP supremo had yesterday kicked a fresh controversy with his comments on rape, saying while one man commits rape, four are named to “settle scores” and that rape by four persons was not “practical”.

While opposing capital punishment for rape last year, he had sparked outrage by saying “ladke, ladke hain…Galti ho jati hai (boys will be boys…They commit mistakes).”
