Rape: Rape, Murder Of 4-year-old Girl: Victim’s Father Marches For Justice | Ludhiana News

Ludhiana: Irked by the failure of the Ludhiana Police to arrest the person who strangled a four-year-old girl to death after raping her, the girl’s family and an NGO marched from their residence to the police station on Sunday night. They raised slogans demanding arrest of the accused.
The 24-year-old accused is from another state and was visiting his cousin in Ludhiana.Speaking to TOI, the girl’s father said, “My entire family is at my native place but I have not gone back to them. For the past 11 days, I have been waiting for justice in Ludhiana. The accused who raped my daughter and killed her barbarically is roaming freely. To demand justice, we staged a march to the police station with the help of an NGO, Child Aid Welfare Society on Sunday night.”
On being asked if he ever talked to the police about the arrest of the accused, he said, “I met police officials on January 1. They assured me that the accused would be arrested in a few days. Then, on January 6, I visited the police station with the NGO people. An NGO representative had an argument with the SHO, after which they made us leave. I have not not gone to the police station since.”
The SHO said, “Police teams had gone to the hometown of the accused but he is not there. His parents had died long back and he does not have any siblings. He has escaped to some place and has not contacted any relative so far.” On the argument with the NGO representative, he said, “As far as the issue with the NGO people is concerned, the woman representative was shouting and misbehaving with us at the police station. I was trying to talk to the father of the girl but she was creating a scene.”
