Andher Nagari : U P

Incidents like these are daily occurances. Culprits will be out in a couple of days on bail. Family of the murdered girl will be pressurised , shamed amd forced to move out.

Police will be bribed to go slow and soft on the criminals.

If at all,  some token punishment may be awarded to the arsonists. No deterrence to criminals in the society.

Meerut girl set on fire by stalkers dies

Meerut:

Over a fortnight after six youths barged into a teenager’s house in Meerut’s Sardhana town and set her on fire after she refused to speak to one of them over phone, the 14-year-old girl succumbed to her injuries at a hospital in Delhi on Tuesday.

On August 17, the stalkers had poured kerosene on the girl and set her on fire. With over 70% burn injuries, she was referred to Safdarjung Hospital.

There was palpable tension in the air of Sardhana as the news of her death arrived. Heavy police forces were deployed both at the burning ghat and outside the houses of the accused.

According to the complaint filed by the girl’s family, she was being harassed by the youths. They used to follow her daily on the way to tuition classes. On August 17, one of them allegedly gave her a mobile phone, saying that he would call her. The girl, however, told her parents about it and the youth was scolded when he called. While five were arrested by the Meerut police, one of the accused surrendered in a court on petty charges of illicit liquor. TNN
