Days after Bhopal gang-rape, semi-naked body of girl found in Madhya Pradesh, rape suspected

BHOPAL: A 12-year-old girl was found dead at her residence in a semi-naked state in Dewas in Madhya Pradesh on Sunday. 

As per prima facie, police suspect that the minor was raped before being murdered. 

The police are yet to identify the victim. 

The incident comes days after a 19-year-old daughter of a police couple was gang-raped by four men in the capital city of the state. The incident has caused much furore on the social media. 

The four men allegedly tied the girl and took turns to sexually assault her. The accused, as per the reports, even took tea and gutkha breaks before returning to repeatedly rape her.

Two city police stations kept dilly-dallying over registering of the FIR, saying the place of occurrence did not fall within their area. 

The case was registered only two days after the incident. Two of the four accused have been arrested so far.

On Saturday, Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan held a meeting with senior police officers and ordered action against the errant officers. He also announced that a Special Investigation (SIT) has been formed to probe the case.
