Bihar: Six men allegedly rape minor girl, throw her out of running train

The police said one person had been arrested while the rest were absconding.

A gang of six men allegedly raped and threw a 16-year-old schoolgirl off a running train in south Bihar’s Lakhisarai district, NDTV reported on Monday. The police said one person, a minor, had been arrested in the case while the rest were absconding.

The incident took place on June 16. The accused allegedly kidnapped the Class 10 student when she had left her house to defecate in the open, according to The Indian Express. The police said that the men then took her to Vanshipur railway station and boarded a local train. They allegedly raped her and then threw her off the moving train near Kijul railway station.

However, the matter came to light on June 17 when local residents found the girl unconscious near the railway station. They took her to a medical centre from where she was moved to Patna Medical College and Hospital.

Meanwhile, the girl’s family said the government-run hospital caused a delay of six hours before admitting her. The doctors admitted to the delay, saying there was shortage of beds, reported NDTV.

Doctors said her condition was deteriorating. “The victim is still critical but we are hopeful that her condition will improve,” said a hospital official, according to The Indian Express. “She is traumatised and seriously injured as she was thrown out from a running train.”

Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar said action was being taken against the accused. “It is a heinous crime. Necessary action is being taken and the accused cannot be spared,” he said. He also ordered the district police to form a special investigation team to probe the incident, reported Catch News.

Reclining on a bed of satin, the glass-encased phone blends into the folds of the luxurious fabric.

The slimness, seamlessness and solidity of the phone make for a great profile shot.

A stunning design which is IP68 rated water-resistant too, it is as beautiful as it is strong.

We partnered with photographer Gaurav Sawn to create this series. Says Gaurav, “The glass sandwich design looks extremely good and the reflections on the back panel make the phone stand out. This is a phone that is best used without a case. The curved corners were also very comfortable to hold. All in all, really enjoyed shooting this phone!”

While this phone is elegant and crafted to perfection, it is also extremely tough, being protected from scratches with Corning® Gorilla® Glass that stretches all the way around.

You don’t need to sacrifice of performance either. It’s packed with a 2.2 GHz octa-core Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 630 processor and comes with a TurboPower™ Charger which means hours of power in minutes!

For the music lover, this phone is a boon. With simultaneous connectivity of up to four Bluetooth® audio devices at the same time, you can build your own stereo system without worrying about cables.

The dual rear cameras – a 12MP that lets you focus faster and get great results even on dark, cloudy days, and an 8 MP camera, with wide angle lens makes your most ambitious photos look all the more impressive.
