The victim girl was allegedly gang-raped in a village under Chandpa police station in Hathras district on 14th of September. She was initially rushed to Hospital in Aligarh, but was shifted to Delhi’s Safdarjung Hospital after her condition deteriorated.
She kept fighting for her life for 15 days, but finally succumbed to her injuries on Tuesday.
