Gaya, Jun 8 : Apparently scared of social ostracism, family members of a minor rape victim opted not to admit her to a hospital leading to her death due to lack of medical care in the district today.
Deputy police superintendent (City) Rajkumar Sah said here that the girl, a native of Shamir Takiya under Rampur police station area here was raped by her neighbour Chintu Kumar who forcibly took her to an isolated place to commit the crime.
He said the accused left the girl near her house even as she narrated her ordeal to family members later. He said Pintu was badly beaten but he managed to escape.
Mr Sah said that family members did not inform police about the incident and also failed to get the girl admitted to a hospital. The girl died at her residence later.
The body had been sent to Anugarah Narain Magadh Medical College and Hospital for autopsy. A massive manhunt was on to nab the accused. (UNI)
