7-year-old Indian girl raped, murdered despite outrage


New Delhi: Instead of extreme outrage from Indian society after the murder of a gang-rape victim in New Delhi, the rape cases are occurring on almost daily basis in the country.

In another incident of rape, a seven-year old girl was raped and murdered in a village in the state of Uttar Pradesh in northern India.

According to a police report, the girl had been abducted and attacked by a youth in the village of Harpur, in the state’s Sonebhadra district, late Thursday.

Police had detained the suspect and started interrogation regarding the incident.

The rape-murder occurred as five men are standing trial for the gang-rape of a 23-year-old student in New Delhi on a private bus as she tried to return home from the cinema with her boyfriend.

The victim died in a Singapore hospital 13 days after the attack, which triggered mass protests across India over the treatment of women and the rising incidence of sex crimes.


  1. There’s absolutely no deterrent in India. If these rapists were hanged, I can guarantee that there would be a dramatic decrease in the amount of rapes. Since these rapists clearly don’t value the lives of their victims, they would at least have to consider how much they value their own lives before deciding to violate someone that way.

  2. what a shame.. its hardly days an innocent lost her life but no sign of regret from these beasts. there should be harsh punishment so that it becomes a lesson for others. is high tine to ract now.
