Dalit Woman Raped by 4 Men in Hathras Dies a Day After Being Admitted to AIIMS

The 19-year-old Dalit woman, who was raped by four men in Uttar Pradesh’s Hathras district, died on Tuesday morning, sources said. She was shifted to AIIMS, Delhi, a day earlier after her condition showed no signs of improvement.

The woman was gangraped a fortnight ago, following which she was admitted to the AMU’s Jawaharlal Nehru Medical College and Hospital. The accused had also tried to strangulate her to death as she resisted their attempt.

Giving details of the incident, Hathras Superintendent of Police Vikrant Vir had said the woman had gone to the fields with her mother on September 14 and went missing soon after. The teenager was later found brutally injured, with her tongue having a serious cut as she bit it while the accused attempted to strangulate her, according to the officer.

Dr Harris Manzur Khan, the superintendent of JNMC, was quoted as saying by PTI that she is on ventilator. A spokesman of the hospital said that the woman’s legs have been completely paralysed and arms partially paralysed.

After her family members expressed their desire to take her to Delhi, she was referred to AIIMS on Monday morning, he said.

Congress’ UP incharge Priyanka Gandhi attacked the Yogi Adityanathh government over crime against women, saying that the accused were roaming around freely.
