Rajasthan: Sikar gangrape survivor critical, being shifted to Delhi

Jaipur: The Sikar gangrape survivor is being shifted to AIIMS in Delhi for treatment. The 11-year-old girl is in a critical condition and is being moved from Jaipur where she has undergone 14 surgeries since she was gangraped in August 2012.

Police have arrested the two men accused of raping the girl, but the family is still waiting for the trial to start. Even though the Ashok Gehlot government made several promises after the Delhi gangrape case but it has failed to fulfil them.

The state government had also promised to send the girl outside India to a place which had world-class medical facilities. But none of the promises were fulfilled. The Chief Minister had promised strict action and fast-track courts but they are yet to materialise.

The girl was undergoing treatment at Jaipur's JK Lone hospital for the past five months. She was brought from Sikar to Jaipur for better treatment and has already been operated upon 14 times. Yet there is no improvement in her condition.

The girl was gangraped by five men in a jeep on August 20, 2012 and left injured badly. Two of the accused have been identified as Suresh Kumar Jat and Ramesh Kumar Sharma. Both of them belong to influential families which are involved in the business of stone crushing and tiles.
