A mob staged a massive protest on Tuesday blocking the Etah -Farrukhabad road along with the body of an eight-year old girl, who was raped and murdered.
The mob first snatched the body of the victim, raped and murdered on Monday night, from the police and sat on a dharna in front of the Vikas Bhawan. According to police, on Tuesday, an eight-year-old girl was strangled to death after rape under Kotwali police station area.
The girl was lured from a marriage ceremony near Mandi Samiti in Shitalpur area. The incident took place when the victim had come to attend the wedding of a family cousin, where she went missing mid-way.
At around 1:30 am, her body was found near an abandoned building in a semi-naked condition with a rope strangled around her neck. There were blood stains on her neck and abdomen area.
Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Akhilesh Kumar Chaurasia said that the accused Sonu has been arrested. Ram Sevek Pal, the father of the girl, demanded that the accused should be handed over to them.
“Khoon ka Badla Khoon” (Blood for blood) was the slogan of the mob and it was demanded by the father too. They also said that the blockade would be lifted only after Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath comes there to hear their grievances.
The situation turned violent when police tried to disperse the mob as the protestors pelted stones on the security personnel. District Magistrate Amit Kishore and other officials are on the spot and persuading the agitators to lift the blockade.
The DM said that the family of the girl would be given Rs 10 lakh as compensation. Heavy security has been deployed in the area in view of the resentment among the people.
