A Dalit woman was allegedly gang-raped in Bihar’s Buxar district. Her five-year-old child died by drowning after being attacked and thrown into a canal, along with the survivor. One of the seven accused men has been arrested in the case. Only two of the accused have been identified. The survivor is being treated at a hospital in the district, about 135 km from Patna. ‘The woman’s medical examination is being done. An FIR (First Information Report) has been filed, while one accused has been arrested. The body of the child has been sent for post-mortem,” police officer KK Singh was quoted as saying.

“We are confirming other details in the case,” KK Singh added. The miscreants abducted them and gang-raped the woman after which the accused tied with her along with her minor son and threw them into a river. The victim said that locals rushed to her rescue after she raised an alarm but it was too late and her child had died by then. This incident comes in the aftermath of the Hathras horror where a 19-year-old Dalit woman was allegedly gang-raped, tortured and murdered by caste men in the Uttar Pradesh village.
