A 15 year old Indian girl was torched to death by 6 men because she had earlier refused advances and lures of sexual abuse by older men.
According to AFP, the teen stepped outside her home in Uttar Pradesh state on November 16.
The girl’s family told police that six men dragged her back inside the house after she objected to their lewd gestures and attempts to touch her, local superintendent RK Sahu said.
The men then doused her in kerosene and set her on fire as punishment in Shahjahanpur village, 270km south-east of New Delhi, according to the family.
The girl was taken to a local hospital, but died of her injuries on Sunday night, the officer said.
“Four of the six accused have been arrested. All of them belong to the same village and are of the same caste as that of the girl,” Sahu said.
Police are hunting for the other two accused.
RIP little Angel.
