Lucknow rape case: a 4-month-old baby dies after being ‘raped’ by a 30-year-old cousin | Lucknow News

LUCKNOW: A four-month-old girl from Hardoi who had come to Lucknow with her parents was allegedly killed after a sexual assault on Sunday night in Madiaon.
The boy’s father has filed an FIR accusing his 30-year-old nephew of raping and murdering his daughter. While the police registered a rape and murder case, they said the rape would be confirmed after the autopsy. The defendant, Pappu was arrested Monday night.
The baby and her parents had come to attend a relative’s wedding in the Daudnagar area on Sunday. Around 7 p.m., while the baby was in his mother’s lap, the defendant and his cousin arrived there. He said he wanted to play with her and took her. Two hours later, around 9 p.m., the baby’s family started looking for her, but she and her cousin could not be found. This led to panic among family members and other villagers who also joined the search.
After a while, the villagers found the baby lying near the wedding lawn in an unconscious state. The defendant was with her.
The baby’s parents rushed to the scene and identified the girl as her daughter and took her to the Vivekananda Polyclinic, Madiaon police said. However, in the chaos that followed, the defendant managed to escape even though he was arrested the following night.
Doctors sent the baby to the KGMU trauma center, where she was pronounced dead.
The northern area police commissioner, Sarvashresth Tripathi, told the media that KGMU doctors informed the police on Monday morning. He added that the violation would only be determined after the autopsy report arrives.
On the basis of the complaint filed by the victim’s father, a case of murder, rape, kidnapping for murder and other sections of POCSO was presented. The victim’s parents said they did not want to talk about the incident.
(The identity of the victim has not been revealed to protect their privacy according to the directives of the Supreme Court in cases related to sexual assault)
