India’s reputation as the world’s most unsafe country for women seems to be getting reinforced time and again. This time, there is outrage over the brutal rape and assault of an eight-year-old girl in Mandsaur in Madhya Pradesh.

People across India are demanding justice for the child at the earliest.

According to reports, the little girl was waiting outside her school to be picked up by her parents when the two accused lured her to an isolated area nearby. There she was gangraped, tortured and her throat was slit. The accused then fled the scene.

The girl is still critical and is being treated at an Indore hospital.

The child’s parents have rejected any financial compensation. Instead, they have demanded the death sentence for the accused. Both the accused have been arrested by the police. They were traced on the basis of CCTV footage.

Thousands of people from across India have protested against this brutal attack on the little girl.
