A seven-year-old girl was allegedly raped and murdered by two men in Uttar Pradesh’s Kanpur district. The accused also took out her liver for tantric practices.
The incident took place in Bhardras village in Kanpur reportedly on Diwali. The police said that the two men gave the girl’s liver to a couple related to them, who believed that eating the organ would help them have a child. All four of them have been arrested.
According to SP (Rural) Brijesh Kumar Srivastava, the two youths were paid Rs 1,500 between them for the task. They reportedly used the money to buy alcohol.
The accused have told the police that they sexually assaulted the girl and then strangled her. They subsequently allegedly cut open her stomach to remove her organs, the police said. Postmortem report shows shock and haemorrhage due to antemortem injuries as a cause of death.
Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has taken note of the crime and directed officials to take strict action against the accused. He has also directed the officials to extend a financial help of Rs five lakh to the victim’s family.
