Unnao becomes UP's 'rape capital'; 86 cases reported this year

Safdarjung Hospital

The Unnao rape victim was brought to India's capital city Delhi in an air ambulance on Thursday evening after being raped and set ablaze while she was on her way to Rae Bareli to meet her lawyers in connection with the case. A large number of local residents and officials were present.

Also, long trials result in bails to the accused who often intimidate victims and their witnesses, and try tampering with evidence.

On Thursday, the victim was seized by five men, including the two people she had named in her complaint, and beaten, stabbed and set on fire, local media reported.

"Save me, I don't want to die, I want to see them hang to death".

Samajwadi Party leader and former chief minister Akhilesh Yadav sat on a "dharna" outside Vidhan Sabha in protest against the Unnao rape case yesterday.

"I didn't want the government to offer money or a house".

The 23-year-old woman suffered extensive injuries and was airlifted from Uttar Pradesh to Safdarjung Hospital in New Delhi, where she died late on Friday of cardiac arrest, according to Dr Shalab Kumar, head of the hospital's burns unit. "On atrocities against women what steps the government has taken to stop such incidents in UP?"

Congress general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, who met the victim's family in Unnao, accused the Uttar Pradesh government of patronising criminals that led to recurrent crimes against women in the state.

On the other hand, the family of the victim demanded strict action against the accused of raping and setting ablaze the woman in Bihar police area of the district. "Another daughter has lost her life while awaiting justice and security".

The woman, whose complaint has not been registered, said that three men from the village attempted to rape her some months ago when she was on her way to buy medicines.

The incident took place in the same Hindupur village. She was found unconscious at a secluded spot, battered and bruised.

BSP supremo Mayawati Saturday asked the UP government to ensure "proper justice" to the family of Unnao rape victim who succumbed to severe burns in Delhi hospital. But many groups and activists believe that figure to be higher as many women don't report cases to police out of fear.
