"I am in a lot of pain, I won't survive."
A police investigation is underway after a 22-year-old Indian woman was gang-raped and killed.
The shocking incident happened in Balrampur, Uttar Pradesh, on September 29, 2020.
The victim had been on her way home from college when she was attacked.
This comes amid the nationwide outrage over the gang-rape and murder of a 19-year-old woman from Hathras.
Superintendent of Police Dev Ranjan said that the victim’s family alleged that two men raped her. The two suspects have now been arrested.
SP Ranjan said: “We have received a complaint in which the family of a 22-year-old woman said that she used to work at the firm.
“On Wednesday, she did not return from the firm. Later, when she did return home on a rickshaw, she had a glucose drip inserted in her hand.
“She died on the way when the family was taking her to the hospital. They claimed that two men raped her. Both of them have been arrested.”
According to the woman’s family, she returned home in a rickshaw in an unconscious state. They claimed her legs and spine were broken.
The victim was taken to hospital but died on the way there.
The family have also alleged that the victim was poisoned before she was raped.
SP Ranjan said: “The family said that the woman did not reach home on time on Tuesday. They tried to contact her but could not get in touch.
“After some time she came home in a rickshaw with a glucose drip attached to her arm and she was in a bad state. The relatives took her to a hospital but she died on the way.”
The victim’s mother said her daughter could not speak when she returned but only said:
“I am in a lot of pain, I won’t survive.”
The mother explained: “She had gone to get her admission done at 10 in the morning. We have the receipts.
“On her way back 3-4 men forcibly put her in their car, injected her and raped her.
“They [accused] broke her back and her legs and sent her back in a rickshaw. She had no strength left to even walk.”
Based on a complaint from the victim’s brother, a case was registered and two suspects have been arrested on charges of gang-rape and murder.
According to police, the Indian woman was raped at a grocery shop in the village of Gaisari. However, they rejected the claims that the victim’s legs and spine were broken.
A police official said: “Taking quick action in the case, both accused in the case have been arrested.
“However, the reports of legs and back being broken have not been confirmed by the post-mortem report.”
