JAIPUR: Relatives of a victim had a harrowing time before the police finally lodged an FIR and recorded the girl’s statement on Wednesday.

A 16-year-old Dalit girl was allegedly raped at Jasti ka Bagh village in Sikar district on Tuesday evening. Following the incident, the girl attempted suicide by setting herself on fire.

The victim, a Class IX student, was returning from school when she was abducted by one Rajaram who allegedly raped her and left her at an isolated place. Later, the girl after reaching home set herself on fire.

“She was rushed to Sawai Man Singh hospital and is undergoing treatment at the burn ward. The police in our village did not bother to register an FIR,” said a relative of the girl.

On Wednesday morning, the victim’s kin informed the police chowki near the hospital, who informed the Moti Doongri police, who in turn asked the Neem ka Thana police station to register a complaint. In the entire process, the complaint was registered only by evening.

Later, police commissioner and senior officers intimated the Sikar police about the incident. A magistrate has also recorded the statement of the victim.

Meanwhile, chairperson of state women’s commission Lad Kumari Jain also visited the girl at the hospital and assured justice for her family. According to the hospital, the girl has sustained 70 % burn injuries and chances of her survival are very slim.
