A 17-year-old minor girl died on Sunday in Madhya Pradesh’s Anuppur district after she was allegedly raped by a man who gave her aphrodisiac drugs, according to a senior officer.
He said the event happened on the night of Friday and Saturday at a village under the Rajendragram police station, around 28 kilometres from the Anuppur district headquarters.
Aphrodisiacs are substances that stimulate sexual desire. Substances include a wide range of plants, foods, and chemicals. DC Sagar, the Additional Director General (ADG) of Police for the Shahdol zone, described the situation as tragic.
“Police are making all efforts to nab the accused and a bounty of Rs 30,000 was announced on his head,” Sagar informed reporters. Yashwant Maravi, the accused, is currently on the run. Narendra Pal of the Rajendragram police station stated on Sunday that the police had received information regarding the death of a 17-year-old girl on Saturday, and that a complaint had been filed.
Why and how did the minor die
According to the inquiry and a brief postmortem report, the girl was raped and died as a result of severe bleeding from her private parts. “The girl was given some aphrodisiac capsules by the accused, aged around 20-22 years, before committing the crime,” Pal said.
He said the victim was in excruciating pain when she returned (to her house) on Saturday morning and told a lady family member about her ordeal before dying.
The accused was charged with rape, kidnapping, and culpable homicide not amounting to murder under sections 376, 363, and 304 of the Indian Penal Code, as well as the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act.
Meanwhile, people protested at the Rajendragram police station on Sunday, alleging police indifference in apprehending the culprits.
