A 13-year-old girl is accused of decapitating her alleged rapist’s five-year-old son and burning his body in a gruesome revenge attack, the Times of India reports..
The teenager, who has not been named, is said to have kidnapped the little boy, beheaded him and set fire to his body before he was placed in a polythene bag and buried under some bricks.
She claims she was lured by a man, identified only as Rinku, who offered her whitener – a chemical used to remove print from paper but is often abused as a solvent – and raped on October 18.
In a statement to police, she said she wanted to seek revenge on the man and so a few days after the alleged rape in the tiny village of Khair, north India, led his son away from his home while he was out playing.
The boy’s family had been searching for him but his half-burnt body was only found when it was dragged out from where it had been buried by some dogs.
Police say that they are now investigating both a murder and rape claim.
The teenager, who is said to be a drug addict and comes from a poor background, has been sent to a juvenile home.
Circle Officer OP Singh, told the Times of India:
“Two cases have been registered – one of murder and the other of rape. Both the cases will be investigated.
“Family of the rape accused met me today [October 24] alleging that the rape charges are fake. It will be investigated.
“There are certain things that need to be kept in mind – the girl is a drug addict and has often got into scuffles with people over minor issues – she has got into fights for even ten rupees.
“Her mother is unwell and father a labourer, she is coming from a very poor family background. There is no family discipline either. She has been spotted consuming drugs.”
