Congress president Rahul Gandhi Friday attacked the Modi government over the death of an Agra school girl after being set ablaze by two men, saying what could be worse about the 'Beti Bachao Beti Padhao' slogan than the "heart-wrenching" incident.

A 15-year-old girl succumbed to burn injuries at the Safdarjung Hospital here Thursday, two days after she was set ablaze allegedly by unidentified men in Agra. The class 10 student was Tuesday waylaid by two unidentified men, who allegedly poured petrol on her and set her on fire with a lighter.

"In the BJP rule, what could be worse about 'Beti Bachao Beti Padhao' than a school girl being set ablaze by anti-social elements while law and order watches open-mouthed. "The incident that has happened with the Agra school girl is heart-wrenching," Gandhi said in a Facebook post.
