Lucknow: In a shocking incident, a seven-year-old girl was raped and dumped in a thicket, right behind a police station in Ashiana Colony on Thursday night
The victim, a Class III student, was found unconscious and bleeding profusely by passers-by who informed the police and then rushed her to the King George’s Medical University. The doctors said that the girl’s condition is critical.
According to the police reports, the girl lives with her parents in Kila Mohammad village near the Ashiana colony. Her father is a railway employee. The girl apparently left home on Thursday afternoon to buy toffees but did not return.
In another shocking incident, a 25-year-old nurse was gangraped in a private hospital by three staff members, including the hospital superintendent, in Mathura district.
The family members of the nurse have filed an FIR in the matter. According to police reports, the incident took place in the Chandra Kala hospital. Police said the victim had been sent for medical examination.
The nurse, according to the FIR, was dragged to a room of the hospital by the superintendent, Dr Kushal Pal, his brother-in-law Pramod, hospital staff Roop Kishore and Sri Krishna Upadhyaya, and then raped by them. She was later threatened with dire consequences if she reported the matter to the police.
A 'missed call' led to the arrest of the accused in the Aashiana rape case in which a 7-year-old girl was brutalised and dumped in thickets. Police said they reached the 22-year-old accused Mahesh Pal by tracking a call he made on the phone number of the girl's father, a class III railways employee. The father missed the call and when he called back later, the number was not reachable. Police tracked the number and detained Mahesh on grounds of suspicion. He was arrested after being identified by the survivor who is currently under treatment at KGMU.
