No Justice for 5-year-old #Girl Who Was #Raped and #Murdered in Delhi
The five-year-old, who was raped and brutally killed by Manoj Thapa in New Delhi on April 17, 2009, still awaits justice.
The accused, 21 years old Thapa who lived in the adjacent building, was just another “friendly neighbour” of the victim’s family when he committed the crime.
The family of the victim came to Delhi from Mhainamtsi village of Peren district, Nagaland, in January 2009 to get better employment opportunities as well as to educate their child in a good school.
However, their nightmare continues even today. Judge, Mr Atul Ghar, had acquitted the accused on basis of insufficient evidence. Thapa has several previous criminal records including a charge of raping a deaf and dumb girl at RK Puram in 2004.
