    Published on January 9, 2014

    The Calcutta High Court is currently hearing the petition filed by the father of the 16-year-old gangrape victim, who died of burns after she was allegedly set ablaze.

    chcThe father of the victim is seeking a CBI investigation into the incident.

    The petitioner also claimed that with the police having failed to provide adequate security to the girl and her family after she was shifted to a different area for more security it is difficult to put faith on such force to hold a proper investigation.

    The victim, daughter of a taxi driver, was gangraped on 26th October last year and again when she was returning home after lodging a police complaint.

    She died in hospital last week due to burn injuries after she was allegedly set ablaze by associates of the rape accused.

    All the accused in connection with the gangrape and alleged murder have been arrested.
