5-year-old girl dies after being raped in India

5-year-old girl dies after being raped in India, A 5-year-old girl in India who was raped for days has died of her injuries, The Associated Press reported April 30.

The girl apparently suffered cardiac arrest late Monday at a hospital in Nagpur city, where she was being treated for injuries from the rape, District official Bharat Yadav said.

The 5-year-old Indian girl was abducted earlier this month and repeatedly raped.

Two suspects have been arrested in the rape of the 5 year old. The first suspect, identified as Manoj Kumar, was a neighbor of the girl’s family.

Kumar is accused of abducting the young girl on April 14, locking her in his home and raping her repeatedly, including using various instruments in the attack. She was found semiconscious three days later, with severe injuries.

A second man arrested is said to be an accomplice in the girl’s rape.

The rape and subsequent arrests set off massive protests in India, where there has been a rash of violent crimes against children, especially girls, and against women.

The attack and rape of the 5-year-old came four months after the fatal gang rape of a woman on a New Delhi bus sparked outrage across India about the treatment of women in the country.

The cases have drawn international attention and outrage.
