The district administration has released Rs 50,000 as part of financial help to the family of a 15-year-old girl, whose parents were killed by her spurned lover.

This was announced by East Godavari District Collector Gopalakrishna Diwadi at a press conference in Rajahmundry on Friday.

The girl, Anusha, who was also injured in the attack by one Rajesh (18), is undergoing treatment here. Rajesh attacked Anusha and her parents after she refused to marry him, police have said.

She will also be given a government job and a house, Diwadi said.

Free education will be provided to Anusha and her two sisters, said the Collector, who visited the victim in hospital.

The Government will also provide assistance to the victims of a gang rape and sexual harassment in a corporate college, he said.

These two separate incidents had taken place in the last 15 days.
