“The girl’s private parts have severely been damaged and she had to endure at least half a dozen stitches. Her condition is stable,” said the Station House Officer of Kargahar police station, Dayanand Sharma to The Telegraph. Police sent her blood-stained clothes to the state forensic science laboratory for investigation.

The villagers blocked the Sasaram-Buxar state highway for four hours on Wednesday in protest, the shop owners of Kargahar market also kept their shop closed. Not only the commoners but also the police are demanding justice for the girl.

It is shameful to see this kind of stories making headlines, it is saddening to think where the state stands. A recent study by National Crime Record Bureau revealed that rate of rape cases have increased by 8% from 2010, a girl gets raped in every 20 minutes and 93 girls in a day on an average. It is high time that we, the people of the country take a stand, otherwise, it will take no time for the country to get demonish.
