Woman, 22, tortured to death by gang-rapists who dumped her bleeding on doorstep in India’s second horror murder in days

TWO men have been arrested on suspicion of the rape and murder of a 22-year-old woman in India.

This comes just two days after another Indian woman died after she was brutally gang raped two weeks ago.

The tragic young woman’s devastated family say her legs and ribs were broken as she was tortured during the attack, although officials have not confirmed the injuries.

The woman, who reports claim to be part of the lower-caste Dalit community, had been working at a private firm last Tuesday night.

However, the young woman didn’t return to her home in Balrampur that night.

The injured woman was finally brought home by rickshaw in the early hours of Wednesday morning in a “bad condition” with a drip still pierced into her arm.

Tragically, the young woman died on the way to the hospital.

Balrampur Superintendent of Police Dev Ranjan Verma said two youths named Shahid and Sahil have been arrested for rape and murder. 

“We received a complaint in which the kin of the woman informed that she worked at a private firm and on Tuesday she did not return till late night,” he said.


“Later in the wee hours of Wednesday, the girl came on a rickshaw in a bad condition with [a] glucose drip attached to her arms. She was soon rushed to a hospital but died on the way. 

“The family members have alleged that two youths raped the girl and took her to some doctor.

“When her condition deteriorated, instead of taking her to a hospital they brought her back to her home.” 

Indian police have today imposed emergency laws in the village where a 20-year-old woman as raped and murdered.


Local cops have banned more than five people from gathering after violent protests erupted over the attack.  

In the latest case, some 280 miles away, the deputy inspector general of police, Rakesh Singh, said that “shock and haemorrhage” were the cause of death. 

“Whether she was sexually assaulted or not will be examined by medical experts,” he added. 

India is one of the world’s most dangerous countries for women, with a rape occurring every 15 minutes, according to government figures from 2018. 

But campaigners say the issue is far bigger than that, with sexual violence against women hugely under-reported, despite prison sentences for rapists now standing at 20 years. 

Members of the Dalit community – formerly known as “untouchables” – are at the bottom of the strict Hindu caste hierarchy in India.

According to human rights organizations, Dalit women are particularly vulnerable to caste-based discrimination and sexual violence. 

Last month, a 13-year-old Dalit girl was raped and killed in Uttar Pradesh.

In December last year, a 23-year-old Dalit woman in the same state died after being set ablaze by a gang of men as she made her way to court to press rape charges.
