As there is a huge question mark still hanging over Unnao rape case witness dying and being buried hastily without an autopsy being conducted, yet another case of Justice lagging behind has come into the limelight from Badaun, UP and this time, it has claimed the life of the victim.

The victim, a 14 YO girl was found hanging in her house on 22nd August after her medical reports denied rape occurrence with her. According to The New Indian Express, the victim was abducted and raped in a school premise when she had gone out of home to take a stroll and relieve herself at night. But her medical reports, however, were not suggestive of the same.

Talking to The Daily Pioneer about the pressure they were being subjected to, the brother of the deceased says, “The families of the accused warned us to withdraw the case or face dire consequences”.

“Post-mortem examination will be conducted by a panel of three doctors to ascertain if it was a case of suicide. We will look into the matter from all angles,” Badaun SSP Ashok Kumar said to Daily Pioneer and added that the victim and the accused were well known to each other and as per their call records, they’ve spoken to each for some 122 times over past couple of days. He further says that based upon the FIR, the chief accused Lavkush has been arrested.

However, the family sticks to the point that the police is shielding the rapists. The dead body of the girl has been sent for autopsy and the reports of post-mortem examinations are still being awaited. We hope, though quite lately, justice prevails.
