Teenager raped, burnt alive in Jharkhand

Saturday May 14, 2011 08:13:22 PM, IANS

Ranchi: A teenaged girl was raped and burnt alive in Jharkhand's Hazaribagh district early Saturday, police said.

According to police, the 16-year-old girl was alone in her home at Vishnugarh village as her parents had gone to attend a marriage in a nearby village.

She was sleeping when some people barged into the house, raped her and set her on fire.

The neighbours came to know of the incident when they spotted the fire in the house.

"Initially, it appears that she was killed after being raped to destroy the evidence. We are trying to find the people involved in the incident. At least two people could be involved in the incident," a police official told IANS, adding that the criminals must have been aware her parents were not at home.
