4-year-old raped and abandoned in UP, police fails to respond

A 4-year-old girl was allegedly raped and abandoned in Hapur, Uttar Pradesh on Friday night.  Four suspects have been detained, according to CNN-News18.

According to a The Times Of India, the family of the minor claimed they kept calling the emergency police helpline number for almost two hours but they got no response.

The father described the incident, “We were sleeping outside our house. At around 12 in the night I woke up due to drizzle and found that my daughter was missing. After a search, we found her bleeding near a tube-well. For two hours, we kept on dialing police helpline number -100 – but no one picked up the phone.”

The 4-year-old was rushed to a private hospital in Pilakhua from where she was transferred to Meerut, SP Alankrita Singh said.

The incident incited villagers to protest against the deteriorating law and order situation in the state. They blocked National Highway-24, demanding the arrest of the accused, reported The Huffington Post.

This incident follows closely on the heels of Bulandshahr gangrape where a woman and her daughter were raped for three hours by dacoits alongside the national highway. After the incident, four cops were suspended for dereliction of duty.

The victims of the Bulandshahr gangrape had approached the Dehat Kotwali police station to file an FIR but SHO RS Singh failed to respond. There were reports that the police did not answer calls placed to the emergency helpline number.
