The incident, which caused widespread outrage in the state, occurred on the night of January 11 when the 14-year-old girl was discovered in a troubled circumstance with injuries to her private parts on a bridge close to Tijara Fatak in Alwar.
She was discovered bleeding and was rushed to a hospital for a two-and-a-half-hour operation. The girl was admitted to a local hospital due to excessive bleeding and serious injuries.
According to authorities, the investigation indicated that she had travelled alone from her hamlet to the metropolis.
Late Friday, authorities announced that they had obtained the girl’s medical report, which ruled out rape suspicions.
They expressed that they still couldn’t seem to decide how the young lady got such serious harm to her private districts.
The shocking case has sparked a political debate about the law and order situation in the state.
