Girl gang-raped, set ablaze in UP
Friday July 12, 2013 3:24 PM, IANS

A young girl was set ablaze after she was allegedly gang-raped by six men in Etawah, the home town of Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav, police said Friday.

The incident occurred Thursday. The girl, a resident of Jesarmau village in Etawah district, is battling for life at a hospital at Saifai with 90 percent burns.

Deputy Inspector General R.K. Chaturvedi told IANS that the girl told police that six men, including her lover Farhan, raped her and set her on fire.

"Efforts are on to nab the culprits," the officer said.

Police said the victim and one of her attackers had intended to get married.

But matters took an ugly turn as money was demanded as a condition for solemnising the bond. The marriage did not take place, and the families grew hostile, the officer said.

To sort things out, the girl apparently called the young man to her house, where he raped her along with five of his friends.

The girl's family alleged that they were being intimidated.
