Maharashtra: After raping a 3-year-old, accused threatens to kill victim’s family

By oneindia staff

Mumbai, May 5: While the horrific Jammu and Kashmir's Kathua gang-rape and murder case is still garnering headlines across the world, rapes of minors continue to haunt India. The latest is the case of rape of a three-year-old girl in Maharashtra's Bhosari.

According to reports, the victim was raped by a 20-year-old man. After committing the heinous crime, the accused also threatened to kill the family if they dare to report the case to the police. Finally, the accused was arrested and the police sent him to a three-day custody. A probe in the case in on stated a report by ANI.


"A 3-year-old girl allegedly raped by a 20-year-old man in Bhosari. Accused allegedly threatened the family to kill them if they approached the police. Police case registered, accused arrested & has been sent to 3-day police custody. Further investigation underway. #Maharashtra," tweeted ANI.

In Jharkhand, a 16-year-old girl was gang-raped on Thursday, and on Friday, the culprits burnt the victim alive inside her home.

In the last few weeks, cases of rapes of minor girls have been reported from almost every corner of the country with mind-boggling frequency. Angry citizens of the country protested on roads in various parts of the country over the horrific rape cases reported from Kathua and Uttar Pradesh's Unnao.

Both the cases caught the attention of the nation because of its barbarity and open support for the accused from a section of the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP). After its "studied silence" over crimes against women, especially minor girls, the Narendra Modi government approved the ordinance to allow courts to award death penalty to those convicted of raping girls under 12 recently.

The ordinance has got mixed reactions as many feel that laws hold no meaning if the authorities do not bring cases of rape to justice. Recently, a six-month-old infant was raped and killed in Madhya Pradesh's Indore. A school-going girl in Assam was also raped and set on fire recently. The girl has died. A three-year-old girl was recently raped in Chhatarpur, Chhattisgarh.
