Two more persons were arrested on Sunday in connection with the rape of a teenaged Dalit girl who later ended life by immolating herself in the Narwana area in the district, police said.
The incident took place on Saturday when the 16-year-old girl was allegedly raped by two youths, identified as Pradeep and Naveen while the former’s sister-in-law Meena kept guard standing on the terrace of the house.
However, another accused Sanjeev, according to the complaint of the victim, also came to the room and bolted the door. In a state of shock, the girl went to her house, sprinkled kerosene and set herself on fire.
The victim was rushed to PGIMS Rohtak, but she succumbed to her 90 per cent burn injuries later in the evening. While Sanjeev and Meena were arrested on Saturday, the main accused were arrested on Sunday morning, police said. Further probe is on into the case. - PTI
