Girl killed in Bihar after sexual abuse by brother

A 16 year old girl, who became pregnant after being repeatedly sexually abused by her elder brother was killed by her parents in Bihar to protect their “honour” police said.

The police have arrested the victim’s brother and charged him with sexual abuse and conspiracy to murder and are looking for her parents, who disappeared after the incident, which occurred last month.

The incident might not have come to light had Helpline, a wing of the NGO Women’s Development Corporation, not received a letter earlier this week from Sarita Kumari urging it to save her life.

She apprehended a threat to her life, saying her parents and brother were conspiring to murder her to protect “family honour”.
