Dalit woman gangraped, burnt alive
Kanpur, July 8 (HT Correspondent)
A middle-aged woman was gangraped and later burnt alive in full public gaze in Bhavanipur village, nearly 40 km from here.
Three policemen have been suspended on the charge of negligence in this connection. Meanwhile, in view of the caste tension in the wake of the incident, a heavy police contingent has been deployed in the village. Trouble began after Usha Yadav, 17, eloped with Surendra, a Dalit, on June 29 last. Thereafter, the girl’s father Ram Babu Yadav along with some others detained Surendra’s mother and her brother-in-law Om Prakash and two sons in their own house.
A week later, he filed a report in which he charged Surendra and his family members with kidnapping his daughter. The officials admitted that in captivity, the woman had been gangraped and ruthlessly tortured. Then, reportedly at the behest of the village headman, she was burnt alive in full public view.
