Bihar Schoolgirl Gang-Raped, Thrown Off Moving Train, Fights For Her Life

The girl hails from Lakhochak village in the Lakhisarai district.

A 14-year-old girl from Bihar, India was gang-raped by six minors, thrown off a train and left unattended for nearly 14 hours at a hospital on Friday night. The victim said she fell unconscious after the attack.

However, the matter came to light on June 17 when local residents found the girl unconscious near the railway station.

The girl’s parents reached by afternoon after which, due to her deteriorating condition, she was transferred to Patna Medical College and Hospital (PMCH).

A PMCH doctor treating her told IANS, “There is a slow sign of improvement after three units of blood were administered to her since Sunday”, adding, “Her legs and waist were badly fractured and she has suffered heavy loss of blood”. “Someone gagged me from behind and dragged me to the nearby field”. “After about 12 hours of frantic search, we found her at Kiul railway station”. The brother alleged that guards had demanded money for a bed. “When I gained consciousness, I was in a hospital”, the victim said in a DNA report. “There were six or seven people; I recognised two of them as our neighbours”, the victim said. The local police said she has jumped off the train when she saw her family members searching for her at the station. The administration swung into action only after media highlighted the case.

An SIT was formed by the district police to probe the incident while one of the accused persons was arrested, Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar said today.

The victim’s elder brother said here on Sunday that she was first treated at Lakhisarai Sadar Hospital where doctors had to apply 24 stitches to stop the profuse bleeding. They informed the police and took her to a hospital, where she was provided treatment.
