NEW DELHI: Assuring speedy justice by fast track courts over the horrific Rohtak gang-rape incident, Haryana Chief Minister M.L. Khattar on Monday said the culprits involved in the brutal crime will not be spared.
 
“Two of the culprits have been nabbed. The police is actively investigating the matter. Culprits involved in such ghastly acts won't be spared, will ensure speedy justice by fast track courts,” Khatta told the media here.
 
On May 9th, a woman was brutally gang-raped and murdered, and her mutilated body was later found in an empty plot in Haryana's Rohtak, in the city's IMT area. The incident came to light only when the victim's body was found.
 
The victim had allegedly refused a marriage proposal, following which the accused reached her home a week later with his friends. A heated argument broke out which resulted in the woman slapping him.
 
In revenge, the accused along with his friends allegedly raped and murdered her.
 
The family of the victim said that on May 9, at least five to six youth abducted her from the gate of a private company. After that the accused took her to a deserted place and gang-raped her.
 
The victim's mother said that the accused have been pressurising her daughter for marriage for the past one year.
 
Forensic reports suggested that the victim was mutilated with sharp-edged weapons. Later, the accused tried to run her over to hide her identity.
 
"The victim was tortured and her body was mutilated after the gang rape. She was killed after being raped involving at least seven people.
 
Her skull was smashed in a way which indicates that she was run over by a vehicle in order to hide her identity," the forensic team has stated.
 
The victim was living with her mother and brother and used to work in a private medicine company.
 
The woman's parents had filed a missing complaint, based on which the police tracked her parents down.
 
The parents were called to Rohtak to identify her body.
 
The distraught parents have claimed that this ghastly attack was carried out by the girl's neighbour and have demanded capital punishment for the rapists.
