The father of a 15-year-old rape victim has been shot dead, supposedly by his little girl’s attacker. According to the police, the accused is on the run. The shooting occurred on Monday night.
The girls family said that the accused had threatened them, to pull back the case, they had held up against him in August a year ago.
The father was rushed to to the hospital after the shooting, yet he died the following day. The incident occurred in Firozabad locality in the northern territory of Uttar Pradesh.
“He was continually threatning us,” the girl’s uncle said. “a few weeks prior, he confronted my brother, saying in the event that he didn’t withdraw the case, he wouldn’t be alive. We informed to the police yet the police overlooked us.”
The young lady’s family additionally says that the police had made no move in the rape case. The case was lodged months prior, under India’s stringent child protection laws’.
It is not uncommon in the recent years when little or no action has been taken in such cases, leading to such incidents. Most cases claim the lives of the victims family, and see any activity in pursuing the accused.
