Lucknow: The brutal murder of a rape victim on the grounds that she refused to withdraw the case caused a stir. Three years ago, in the incident of sexually assaulting a 19-year-old girl, the accused committed this atrocity. The brutal incident of being chased and hacked to death with an ax took place in Derha village of Kaushambi district of Uttar Pradesh.
According to the details provided by the police, Pawan is an accused in the case of raping a minor girl along with his friends three years ago. The police registered a case on the complaint of the victim (now murdered) young woman. He was arrested and taken to jail. But since then he has been harassing the victim’s family and the young woman to withdraw the case. For this, they were called Sasemira and he increased his faction. Pawan, who came on bail two days ago, planned to kill her anyway.
At exactly this time, his brother Ashok Nishad, who was imprisoned as an accused in another murder case, also came out. Both of them threatened them together and tried to close the case. When that failed, as per the plan, the victim took the cattle to graze and while returning, she was attacked. He was chased and hunted and killed with an axe. Due to this, even the locals were panicked. Kaushambi SP Brijesh Srivastava said that the police, who reached the spot and registered a case, shifted the body of the woman for post-mortem and formed teams to arrest the accused.
The UP Congress said that criminals are rampant in UP and they have no fear or respect for any laws. A video regarding this has been posted on Twitter. When will the girls be able to breathe free air in such a bad condition without light in this dark city? She expressed her concern.
If this is the case, this incident has once again brought the safety of women and young women into discussion in UP. The Congress alleged that the girl child was left unprotected. The incident comes two months after Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath issued a stern warning that Yamraj would exact revenge on those who harassed women. According to NCRB data 2021, more than 56,000 crimes against women have been registered in UP, among which rape, murder and acid attacks are the most significant.
