Imphal, Aug 22: A 16-year-old girl who was raped by her own father on different occasions and attempted suicide by consuming poison on July 31, 2022 died last night at around 9:40 a.m. at JNIMS.
According to reports, the “rape victim” died of kidney failure.
The teenager’s corpse was handed over to her family members and the concerned JAC after an autopsy at the JNIMS morgue.
Speaking to the media, a Department of Social Welfare official who helped with the treatment of the “rape victim” said the girl had been raped by her own father on several occasions since 2016.
Saying that the “rape victim” was admitted to JNIMS on the night of August 3-4, he added that they (a team from the Department of Social Welfare) rushed to the hospital while an unknown informed of the incident at Thou-bal Women’s Police Station.
He further stated that the victim and his mother stayed with the maternal grandparents for an extended period of time as they could not bear the harassment from his father.
Noting that the deceased had expressed her desire to stay in a boarding house to prepare for the HSLC exam before consuming poison on July 31, he added that the victim’s kidneys were damaged because she had been administered a large amount of birth control pills in the past.
Meanwhile, worried JAC co-organizer Akoi-jam Chitreshori, while condemning the victim’s father’s “gross mischief, said incidents of such misconduct and crimes against women and children are on the rise in the state”.
She then urged the government to take tough action against the culprit who repeatedly defiled her own daughter.
It can be mentioned that the accused in the case (the father of the victim) was arrested by the police a few days ago.
