According to the rape survivor, the incident took place on Sunday night when she was allegedly kidnapped from her house in Khedi Kalan village in Meerut's Sarurpur. "When I woke up in the night, he came, gagged my mouth and took me away. His name is Shahid and he teaches in the Madarrasa. I also study there," she said. This horrific incident comes days after alleged rape and murder of a two-and-a-half-year-old girl in Aligarh which sparked nationwide outrage.
In another incident, a 7-year-old girl's body was found on Sunday in a field. The minor's 'salwar' was tied around her neck, which led to suspicion that the victim must have been raped. The superintendent of Police Jalaun, Swami Prasad, stated that a murder case was registered after the father of the deceased filed a complaint. The victim's body was then sent to Orai medical college for post-mortem. In the FIR, the girl's father has put down the names of two of his neighbours as he did not have a great relationship with them. The Jalaun girl went missing when she had stepped out to play around 4 pm on Friday evening. Her body was found in a field early Saturday morning by some villages who then informed her father about the incident. According to the police, the family had not filed a report about their missing girl.
