A 13-year-old girl who claimed she was raped has been accused of taking ‘revenge’ on her alleged attacker – by decapitating his five-year-old son.The teenager claimed that she was assaulted in a village in the northern Indian state of Uttar Pradesh earlier this month.
Police are said to have registered a case of murder against the teenager while the rape claim is also being investigated.
According to the Times of India reporter Eram Agha, the girl said she was raped by a man called Rinku after he offered whitener – a print erasing substance that is sometimes misused as an intoxicant.
The body of the alleged attacker’s son was later found wrapped in a polythene bag when dogs dragged the half burnt body out from beneath the bricks.
The Times of India quotes police officer OP Singh as saying: ‘There are certain things that need to be kept in mind – the girl is a drug addict and has often got into scuffles with people over minor issue – she has got into fights for even Rs 10.
