Raped child's father refuses to perform final rites

PTI, PANAJI | 24 May 2012 23:38 IST

The father of a four-year-old girl, who was raped and killed in Quepem town of Goa, has refused to perform the final rites of the body till his demand for justice is met.

He demanded that the 22-year-old accused should be given death penalty.

"I want justice. I will not perform final rites on her body till I get justice," girl's father Motiurahman Khan, a businessman living in Kurla (Mumbai), said while refusing to accept the body after postmortem, which confirmed rape and death due to strangulation.

"I have told police that the accused should be put to death. If he is let scot-free, he will continue committing such crimes after his release from jail," the distraught father said.

He alleged that Goa police were not interested in finding out the girl on May 20 when a missing complaint was lodged.

"It was only after Police Commissioner from Mumbai rung the counterpart in Goa that the investigations took pace," he claimed.

The accused, Dipak Kumar, a labourer hailing from Bihar, had allegedly raped and killed the girl on May 20.

The victim was on vacation at her grandparent's place in Quepem town, 80 kms away from Panaji, when the accused lured her to the under-construction site promising her to give chocolate.

The accused raped her and later killed her, fearing that she will reveal the incident to her grandparents.

Meanwhile, police arrested the accused on May 22 and he has been booked under Goa Children’s Act, 2003 for raping, killing the girl and also trying to destroy the evidence.

GOA IS NOT A SAFE PLACE, THE ONLY REASON IS

CORRUPTION.........IN .............POLICE

WHENEVER THERE IS A CRIME THE POLICE FAIL TO REACH THE CRIME SCENE EVEN AFTER 5 HOURS....

3 TO 5 MINUTES IS THE MAXIMUM TIME GIVEN IN FOREIGN COUNTRIES,, FOR THE POLICE TO REACH THE CRIME SPOT,,,

ITS THE POLICE DEPARTMENT....!!! IN GOA TO BE BLAMMED....

Put him to death . I fully agree. My blood boils when i hear of attrocities done on children... and this little angel was the target for the selfish motive of this idiot.

GOD BLESS GOA. The police should also be equally put to task and made accountable.

I can understand what the parents are going through,this type of act is one of the worst pathetic, disgusting, and criminal offence.He should be hanged to death, so no further rapes should take place . I FULLY AGREE WITH THE FATHER Mr Chief minister please be serious about this matter...

This type of crime should be stopped. I am with the father of the child and fully agree with his words "I have told police that the accused should be put to death. If he is let scot-free, he will continue committing such crimes after his release from jail,"

I can understand the situation the father and the unfortunate family is in at the moment. No amount of words or actions can relive their sufferings or assuage their feelings. A young girl, a bud who did not even blossom was crushed and pulverized instantly by the Psychopath.

However, the father must take possession of his little diamond's body and perform the final rites. That will at least bring some kind of closure on the plight of the family. No doubt the wound will forever be open and flowing.

The law must take its own and firm course in dealing with the B#### B####.

The role of Goa Police not being quick enough in taking actions as alleged by the father must be investigated.

This tragic incident caused a lot of pain to me.

Goa Police seem to demonstrate a bias & derilection of duty and prejudice, towards the poorer segments of Goan Society.

This is not the first incidence of such bias.

Goa Police only seem to act, when either a Poltician interferes or one of their own Police counterparts.

If what the father of this poor little child ,who lost her life to a depraved human claims to be true & is substianted, then the Police should be held accountable & punished.

Perhaps there was no "hafta" to be made .

Lets us hope the new BJP Government,will now take some serious action,if the Police have acted irresponsibly.

The victim & her family were guests in Goa.This will only confirm further, to the rest of India and Tourists & Foreigners alike, that Goa Is now the RAPE capital of India.

This shocking incident has also been reported on International media & newspapers.

Once again it will demonstrate that Goa Police are not only dysfunctional & inept, but corrupt. to the bone.
