Bhadohi (UP): It seems there's no end to crimes against women in the state.
In yet another case, a 14-year-old Dalit girl, was found murdered in Bhadohi district on Thursday.
Ram Badan Singh, superintendent of police, said: "The head of the girl was smashed with stones. Post-mortem report is awaited."
Her family suspected that she's killed after sexual assault.
The girl was a resident of Chakrajaram Tiwaripur village of Gopiganj police station area.
She, according to the police, had gone to the field to relieve herself and did not return home.
Her brother went out to look for her and found the body in the field.
A team of forensic experts and crime branch officials has also reached the village to collect evidence and probe the matter.
The 14-year-old was killed days after the Hathras incident where the 19-year-old had been allegedly raped and strangulated.
The police now denied she was raped even though the victim in a video message said she had been sexually assaulted.
On Tuesday, hours after the Hathras victim died, a 22-year-old Dalit student was also raped and brutalized in Balrampur district. She died on way to the hospital.
On Thursday, two minor girls were raped in Bulandshahr and Azamgarh districts of Uttar Pradesh.
