Minor Dalit girl raped, dies after mud stuffed in mouth in UP’s Badaun | Bareilly News

BAREILLY: A day after a mentally-ill minor Dalit girl was raped and killed in a village in Budaun, police on Sunday claimed they have arrested the accused, a 25-year-old contractual employee of a power corporation who also runs a sweet shop.
After raping the girl, the accused stuffed her mouth with mud to silence her for good, said police.
The minor’s body was found near the railway tracks, close to her house in Faizganj Behta area of Uttar Pradesh’s Budaun district on Saturday.
SSP Budaun, OP Singh, said, “The accused was in an inebriated state when he saw the girl alone near his shop. He took her to a secluded place by offering her sweets and then raped her. After the sexual assault, he choked the girl to death by stuffing her mouth with mud as she said that she would tell her parents about the matter.”
“After collecting evidence, we detained the accused for questioning and he admitted to have killed the minor girl,” the SSP said.
Police have slapped sections 302 (murder), 376-3 (rape against a minor) of IPC along with POCSO Act and the SC/ST Act.
“The accused was sent to jail on Sunday,” said SSP.
After getting the information about the incident, police acted swiftly and carried out a thorough investigation in this case.
The autopsy report confirmed that the girl was sexually assaulted before the murder, said officials.
Meanwhile, the SSP added, “His clothes and DNA samples have been sent to the forensic lab, and we will file a chargesheet in this case soon.”
