Minor boy kills Dalit girl for resisting oral sex in Aligarh
In shocking news, a teenager has allegedly murdered a Dalit girl for resisting oral sex in Aligarh, Uttar Pradesh. The Aligarh police in UP on Wednesday arrested the minor boy for allegedly ending the life of a 16-year-old verbally impaired Dalit girl in Kiwlas village of Akrabad tehsil.
Meanwhile, the police claimed the juvenile aged 16-17 years admitted to the crime, adding that he tried to have oral sex with the girl on Sunday afternoon right after watching porn. The police further added that the accused murdered the girl after she resisted him.
“He accepted his crime. He said he spent his morning watching porn after which he tried to rape the girl. Since she has speech impairment and he was well aware of it, and because it was noon and no one else was around, he misused the opportunity to force himself on her for oral sex. When she fought back, he pressed her mouth with her dupatta and then strangled her to death,” a senior police officer told news agency ThePrint.
“What he has done comes under the purview of IPC 376 — rape law. Hence he has been charged with rape,” Aligarh SP (rural) Shubham Patel said.
In an official statement released by the police, the accused added, “I didn’t want anyone to suspect me. I wanted the police to keep searching the accused in the girl’s village, so I dragged her body and threw her dupatta and slippers at different locations.”
