There seems to be no end to India’s rape shame, with each case more horrifying that the other and leading to a louder chorus for tougher action.
The latest case has been reported from Madhya Pradesh’s Indore where a four-month-old infant was raped and killed allegedly by a 21-year-old man in Rajwada area.
The shocker came to light on Friday after the blood-soaked body of the baby was recovered from the basement of a building, following which the infant was taken to state-run MY Hospital. The girl bore injury marks on her private parts and head.
A CCTV footage shows the accused, said to be a relative of the family, carrying the girl on his shoulder at around 4.45 am on Friday.
“The CCTV images show that he took the girl to the basement of the building, some 50 metres away from where the family was sleeping, and her body was recovered in the afternoon,” the police officer said.
“The infant had an injury on her head. The accused probably threw her on the ground,” Mishra said.
