In an eerie throwback to the Delhi gang rape case, a 14-year-old girl gang raped by three relatives is battling for life in Punjab. On Thursday, she was moved to the GND hospital in Amritsar, where her uterus had to be surgically removed and intestines repaired.
The family lives in a village in Mand area. The girl was abducted from her home on January 28, when she had gone to the toilet outside the house, said her father.
She came back after two hours and the next day, complained of acute pain in the stomach. On repeated questioning, she narrated the incident, said superintendent of police Rajinder Singh.
“We removed her uterus, and repaired her intestines and other organs that were ruptured. But she is still in a critical condition,” said medical superintendent Dr Tejbir Singh.
