The National Commission for Scheduled Castes has demanded an
investigation into the murder of a dalit teenager in Ghaziabad.
The deputy chairman of the NCSC, Raj Kumar Virk, has asked the police
to heed to the demands of the girl's family, who suspect the killing
to be a case of "human sacrifice" rather than murder.
Virk had visited the Jadopur village last evening where the young girl
was allegedly murdered after being raped.
The girl's father Chet Ram, who had earlier lodged a case of rape and
murder, now suspects his daughter was offered as a human sacrifice by
his neighbour Jagdish.
The incident happened on February 4 when a 16-year-old dalit girl was
found dead in a jungle near Pilakhwa village here.
Though rape has not yet been confirmed in the post-mortem report, the
vaginal swabs of the victim have been sent for laboratory test in
Agra, SSP Raghubir Lal said.
While the police has arrested four suspects in connection with the
case, Jagdish is still at large.
