After Hathras horror, three more 'rape' incidents reported from UP in a single day
Lucknow/IBNS: A day after Uttar Pradesh's Hathras gang-rape victim died in a Delhi hospital and was cremated by the state police keeping her family away, three more women, including two minors, were allegedly raped at three different locations in the same state on Tuesday, reports said on Wednesday midnight.
According to reports, a 22-year-old Dalit woman died after being allegedly gang-raped by two men in UP's Balrampur.
Local media reports said that her legs and waist were broken while her family members claimed that she was given an injection before being raped. Like Hathras, Balrampur rape victim's body was also cremated at midnight.
Balrampur Police, however, stated that in a quick action, the local police had arrested both the named accused.
"The local media reports claiming the victim's hands, legs and waist were broken are untrue, this has not been confirmed in the post mortem report," Balrampur Police said.

"She returned home from work on Tuesday on a rickshaw with a glucose drip inserted in her hand. Her family was taking her to hospital but she died on the way. Both the named accused have been arrested, and further probe is on," local police officials said.
The third such report came from Azamgarh district's Jiyanpur area where an eight-year-old girl was allegedly raped by her 20-year-old neighbour.
According to reports, the accused neighbour took the girl to his house telling her mother that he was taking her for a bath and he took her clothes as well.
When the child returned from the neighbour's house, she was in pain and bleeding, and was rushed to a hospital where she is undergoing treatment in a serious condition.
Police said, the accused neighbour, identified as Danish, had been arrested.
Meanwhile, a 14-year-old girl from Bulandshahr was allegedly raped by her 20-year-old neighbour on Tuesday night.
Local police said that investigation had been initiated and efforts to catch the named accused were on.
Earlier, the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) on Wednesday took suo motu cognizance of the fatal gangrape of 19-year-old women belonging to Scheduled Caste community in Hathras district of Uttar Pradesh and called it a serious issue of human rights violation.
The 19-year-old girl went missing on Sept 14 and was found in a badly injured condition on Sept 22.
She was subjected to gangrape and brutality by four men in Hathras District of Uttar Pradesh two weeks ago following which she was shifted from the Aligarh Muslim University’s Jawaharal Lal Nehru Medical College and Hospital when her condition deteriorated and there were no signs of improvement in her health condition.
The victim has died at Delhi's Safdarjung Hospital in New Delhi on Tuesday. She was later cremated by the police keeping her family away.
