Hapur gang-rape accused spotted in Amroha; gives police the slipLast updated on Aug 12, 2020, 10:59 pm
A man named Dalpat, an accused in the brutal gang-rape of a six-year-old in Hapur, Uttar Pradesh, was reportedly spotted in Amroha but couldn't be nabbed despite police being alerted, a report in TOI said.
The accused was seen with country-made liquor near his native Mahmooodpur village on Monday.
Two more people were involved in the heinous crime, and they are also at large.
Girl was kidnapped while she was playing
On August 6, the girl was abducted by bike-borne men from outside her home in Garh Mukhteshwar while she was playing. After she didn't return, her parents approached police and a search operation was launched.
Subsequently, she was found lying unconscious in a pool of blood. A medical examination revealed she was raped.
She is undergoing treatment at a hospital in Meerut.
Six days on, police yet to arrest accused
Days after the incident, the police released sketches of the three accused.
Hapur SP Sanjeev Suman had said earlier that the case would be solved soon and added that eight teams have been formed.
But six days later, the accused are still on the run.
Shockingly, even after being told that Dalpat could be in Amroha, police failed to arrest him.
Days after three sketches, police released another photo of accused
Releasing one more photo of Dalpat recently, UP Police said, "Whoever can provide information about this man will be given a reward of Rs. 50,000. The name of the person who gives the information will not be revealed."
UP Police also released images of search ops
Besides Dalpat's photo, police also released images of teams involved in the operation. For days now, teams of police have been combing areas of Hapur and Amroha but they haven't made a breakthrough.
Meanwhile, reports said the victim is still critical.
She has suffered excessive blood loss, internal injuries, and would require more surgeries as her private parts are also damaged.
