Kotkhai rape-murder case: Victim was rewarded for sincerity in school

The victim was rewarded as the most regular student in the school. But she shifted to another school as her entire class failed to clear the board examination.

The minor, who was raped and murdered at Kotkhai, was a dreamer who wanted to make it big in life. She was also adjudged as the most regular student in her school a year back.

“The girl was earlier studying in a girl’s senior secondary school at Balson. She shifted to a school in Mahasu later,” said DGP Somesh Goyal on Thursday.

He added, “The victim was rewarded as the most regular student in the school. But she shifted to another school as her entire class failed to clear the board examination.”

Speaking about the fateful day, Shimla superintendent of police (SP) DW Negi, who is also the part of the Special Investigation Team (SIT) said, “The rapist buried victim’s face in the ground. As she failed to breathe, she died.”

“This case cannot be compared to Nirbhaya, as there was a dying declaration of the victim in that case. This, however, is totally a blind case,” said inspector general of police Zahur Zaidi.
