4 charged with rape, homicide of nine-year-old woman in India
NEW DELHI: A priest and three different males have been charged with the gang rape and homicide of a low-caste nine-year-old woman, Indian police mentioned, in a case that sparked days of protests in New Delhi.
The woman was allegedly assaulted by the priest, 53, and three employees on Aug 1 after she had gone to a crematorium to fetch water.
The 4 males, who’ve been in custody since they had been detained in early August, face the loss of life penalty.
The woman’s mom earlier informed police that the boys had known as her to the crematorium and claimed that her daughter had been electrocuted.
They informed her that if she reported the incident to police, docs conducting an post-mortem would take away her kid’s organs and promote them.
Her daughter’s physique was then cremated, earlier than some locals intervened and pulled some charred stays from the pyre.
The 400-page cost sheet from Delhi Police cited “scientific, technical and different proof” and witness testimony, the federal government mentioned in an announcement late on Saturday (Aug 28).
It added that its push for fees to be laid inside 30 days of the alleged incident mirrored its “zero tolerance” of crimes towards girls and women within the nation of 1.three billion individuals.
