A 13-year-old girl committed suicide hours after being raped by local youth in Uttar Pradesh, the most populous state in India.
The incident comes amidst nationwide outrage over the death of a Dalit girl that was raped and tortured by a bunch of heartless monsters in the Hathras district of Uttar Pradesh.
The 13-year-old girl was a resident of an area that falls under the jurisdictions of the Chanan Police Station area in the Lakhisarai district.
She was alone inside her house when a local youth reached her and said that his sister wanted to meet her.
She did not suspect the intentions of the youth because his sister was a close friend of the boy.
Upon reaching the house of her friend, the youth, who was not named or aged, locked her inside a room and raped her.
He also threatened to kill her if she dared to reveal the incident to anyone.
The victim fell sick after the incident and narrated the entire incident to her parents.
The family rushed the girl to a police station so they could register a case against the accused youth.
Upon returning to their home, the 13-year-old girl was found hanging from the ceiling with the help of a scar.
The parents of the girl told the police:
When we returned to our home from the police station, we found our daughter hanging from the ceiling with the help of a scarf. She ended her life unable to bear ignominy.
Vaibhav Kumar, the in-charge of the Chanan Police Station, said that they have conducted raids at the house of the victim, but no one was there.
We conducted raids at the residence of the accused but his home was found locked. The accused will be caught soon.
An official case has been registered and the police are currently trying to find the youth that raped the 13-year-old girl.
