The accused had first assaulted and then set on fire an 11-year-old girl in Sambhal. The child fought for life for seven days in a Delhi hospital before dying of burn injuries.
Additional district government counsel N K Yadav said, “On Nov 21, 2019, the victim was alone in her house as her mother had gone to see a doctor. Finding her alone, Zeeshan Khan raped her and set her ablaze.”
Khan was arrested and sent to jail.
