Yet another shocker from Uttar Pradesh as a 27-year-old gang-rape survivor set herself on fire along with her 12-year-old son.
The woman is now dead while under treatment in a hospital in Shahjahanpur.
Medical sources confirmed that the woman was admitted with as much as 95 percent burns.
Her son too suffered about 15 per cent burns.
In a dying declaration, the woman has alleged that the police refused to register her gang-rape complaint and the same men gang-raped her again on August 18.
The woman’s husband told the police that he was not at home when she set herself on fire.
The couple had allegedly been trying to have a case of rape registered against three men from the village at the local police station for over a month.
It is said that three policemen have been suspended and a criminal case has been filed against them.
According to reports, the woman was first gang-raped about six months ago by three men from her village. The attackers threatened to kill her child if she told anyone.>
