A day after a 16-year-old victim of sexual harassment from Punjab’s Sangrur died at the Post Graduate Institute of Medical Education and Research (PGIMER), Chandigarh, a minor girl from Karnal was rushed to the hospital on Wednesday after she was allegedly sexually abused and thrown off a roof by her drug addict neighbour.

The condition of the 12-year old victim, who is admitted to Advanced Trauma Centre, is stated to be critical. She has sustained serious head injuries and is unconscious.
