Delhi again failed her Nirbhaya, says DCW chief as 14-year-old Dalit rape victim dies

New Delhi: A 14-year-old Dalit girl, who was raped at Burari in north Delhi, succumbed to her injuries in a hospital here on Sunday.

The Delhi Police arrested Daya Shankar, the main accused, from Burari on Saturday evening, after receiving a notice from the Delhi Commission for Women.

The accused had raped the 14-year-old in December 2015 and then kidnapped her and subjected her to multiple sexual assaults again in May 2016. The brutality did not stop there; the minor was also forced to drink a corrosive substance which almost destroyed her internal organs.

 

Immediately after the death, Delhi Commission for Women (DCW) chief Swati Maliwal met the grieving family members and demanded the strictest action against the rapists.

Taking to Twitter, Maliwal said the girl's parents were "very poor and inconsolable". 

Maliwal also accused the central government of doing away with a special task force formed on women safety in Delhi.

Meanwhile, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal slammed Prime Minister Narendra Modi for alleged police inaction over crime against women in the capital.
