Gandhinagar district police arrested a labourer for allegedly raping three minor girls, aged between three and seven years, and killing one of them within ten days, officials said on Monday. The girl’s medical check-up confirmed that she was raped.
Inspector General of Police, Gandhinagar range, Abhay Chudasama said “The accused is married with a daughter. He has a perverted mentality, maybe due to his habit of watching porn. Till now, he has confessed to having raped three minor girls aged 3, 5, and 7 years and killing one of them. He has been remanded in police custody till November 11 for further investigation.”
The accused,Vijay Thakor, 26,sexually assaulted his latest victim,a three year-old girl,after killing her. He then dumped her body into a culvert. “Thakor killed the three-year-old girl because she was shouting too much and then raped her before dumping her body in a culvert.The body has been recovered by the police.”
The accused had lured the five-year-old victim by offering her to buy new clothes. In the second case, Thakor entered the hut of the three-year-old girl when everyone was asleep in the night and took her away.
Earlier, Gandhinagar police had received a complaint from a woman labourer living near Rancharda village alleging that an unidentified man abducted her five-year-old daughter on November 4 and left her at a secluded place on the same day.
