INDIA - Kolkata: police ignore 16-year-old girl who is killed after being gang-raped [AN]


After attackers set the girl on fire to prevent her from speaking, she dies from burns to her body. Doctors reveal she was pregnant. The family accuses the police of negligence and of cremating their daughter's body against their will, perhaps to hush up the case. For Catholic doctor, the incident is "an attack on the dignity of life itself".
