Deepa was stabbed to death. Although she had been attacked before, this time it proved fatal.
Deepak Rana, chairperson of the NGO, said this was the third attack on Deepa.
“Last September, she was picked up by some youths and after raping her, they chopped off her hand. She was so traumatised with the incident that she could not even recalled the incident to lodge a police complaint,” said Rana.
The community has also accused a policeman of harassing Deepa to seek sexual favour for him and his friends. “It was only after we raised the issue with senior police officials that the accused police man stopped harassing her”.
