Shimla rape case: accused kills co-conspirator”

Earlier, a 16years-old girl was found dead in the Halaila forests in Kotkhai, two days after she went missing on her way home from school.

Shimla superintendent of police (SP) DW Negi, a Himachal Pradesh Police Service (HPS) officer and member of SIT, has been transferred and is now SP state vigilance and anti-corruption bureau, Shimla.

The rape and murder of a schoolgirl in Kotkhai tehsil of Shimla district on Wednesday took a mysterious turn when one of the accused, Suraj Kumar, was killed in police custody, reportedly by another accused.

The gangrape of the girl took place on July 4 when she was returning from the school.

The High Court also summoned the DGP and sought a report.

The protesters, led by Students' Federation of India (SFI) activists, assembled at the Central Telegraph Office here and marched to the Ridge via the Mall Road, carrying placards demanding justice for the victim. The accused have been identified as Ashish Chauhan (29), Rajender Singh alias Raju (32), Subhash Singh Bisht (42), Lok Jan (19), Suraj Singh (29) and Deepak (38).

Himachal Police has been facing flak in handling the sensitive case in which a girl, student of Class X, was raped and murdered in the Kotkhai area of Shimla district. The deceased's elder sister said, "Our protests will continue till the real culprits are apprehended".

Advocate General Sharwan Dogra assured the court the police were investigating the case and demanded the matter should be handed over to the CBI.

He also expressed apprehensions over the involvement of the arrested Nepalese in the case. "But no CBI official has so far started investigation in the case", he said. "It seems police are shielding the main accused and they have arrested others to cover-up the case", he added.

The delegation requested the Home Minister to send Central Government's directions to the State government to maintain law and order in the state.

Kashyap said that "The State Government instead of arresting criminal elements is threatening peace loving young innocent protestors with strict action which is shameful act in the democratic country".

The brutality of the crime shocked residents in Himachal Pradesh, a Himalayan state with some of India's lowest rates of sexual violence, and prompted calls for a swift investigation.
