New Delhi: Even before the case of murder and alleged rape of a teenaged girl in Hathras has died down, another similar case has surfaced in the district.
A six-year-old girl raped in Iglas in Aligarh about two weeks ago by her cousin, has died in a Delhi hospital on Tuesday.
The girl belonged to Hathras but had been living with her maternal aunt after her mother died last year. She was taken to Delhi for treatment after her condition deteriorated.
SSP Aligarh G. Muniraj has suspended the Station House Officer of Iglas for laxity in arresting the accused.
The family placed the minor’s body at the Sadabad-Baldev road and staged a demonstration, demanding the arrest of the accused and family and also the guilty police personnel.
Senior officials have reached the spot to pacify the protestors.
