Hisar, December 9

The brutalised body of a six-year-old girl was found near the telephone exchange building in Uklana town of Hisar district this morning, sending shock waves.

  The girl had reportedly been abducted from inside a hut where she was sleeping with her mother last night. Her father was away to Gurgaon yesterday.

Sexual assault by the assailant resulted in her death, said doctors who conducted a post-mortem examination on the body.

The doctors said the assailant inserted a wooden stick into the girl’s private parts, thus rupturing her intestine and causing her death. “The victim was brutally assaulted by the assailant. Scratch marks on the girl’s body indicated that she tried to resist the assault,” said one of the doctors.

The police have constituted a special investigation team (SIT) to probe the incident, even as angry residents held a demonstration demanding immediate arrest of the accused.

The family of the victim, which belongs to Tohana town in Fatehabad district, had been living in Uklana for some years to earn livelihood by working as labourers. 

Hisar DSP Jitender Singh said the SIT headed by Uklana DSP Jaipal Singh would probe the case. A case under Sections 376, 302, 363, 376 and 450 of the IPC and Section 6 of the POCSO Act has been registered against the unidentified accused.

Meanwhile, expressing shock and disgust at the brutal incident, former Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda has demanded immediate arrest of the culprits.

In a statement, Hooda said such incidents showed the law and order machinery had collapsed in the state under the BJP government. Things had come to such a pass that children were safe neither in their schools nor at their homes, he said.
