A five-year-old Dalit girl was allegedly raped and murdered in a Gurgaon village on Sunday morning. Police have detained her neighbour, a 22-year-old labourer from Bihar, for the crime. Police said that during preliminary questioning, he allegedly confessed that he committed the crime under the influence of alcohol.
Police said that a group of locals beat up the accused and prevented them from taking him into custody. Another group pelted stones at a police vehicle and blocked a road, demanding that the accused be handed over to them to ‘deliver swift justice’.
Police said the incident took place around 10 am when the accused took the girl out on the pretext of taking her to a shop to eat. Instead, he took her into the bushes behind her house and allegedly sexually assaulted her before killing her….
