Jamshedpur, Sep. 7: Balwinder Kaur, mother of the four year old victim of rape and murder in Sidhgora police station area, here on Wednesday demanded that the culprits responsible for the ghastly act should be hanged.
Kaur, who received a compensation cheque of Rs 1 lakh from Pawan Agrawal, representative of the local MLA and Jharkhand CM Raghuvar Das, said, “The killers of my daughter deserve no other punishment than the sentence of death. They should be hanged without delay.”
Kaur broke down while taking cheque from the MLA’s representative at her residence. District BJP president Dinesh Kumar was also present on the occasion.
Two youths, identified as Neeraj Gope and Sunny Gope, had allegedly raped and murdered Mahi, the daughter of Balwinder Kaur, between 16th and 18th August last. The body of the minor was found on 18th August last in the waters of the Chhath Ghat near Cross Road Number 9 in Sidhgora.
According to police, the culprits had taken the girl into an abandoned quarter where they committed the heinous crime. Cops suspect the two resorted to the inhuman act to take revenge for their eviction from the minor’s house after failing to pay their rent for several months. The two stayed as tenants in the building owned by Mahi’s family, cops said.
