Ghaziabad: Despite nationwide wrath over December 16 Delhi gang rape incident, the crimes against women are going unabated and police seem to be a mute spectator in curbing such incidences. An appalling incident of rape and murder of a five-year-old girl has taken place in Ghaziabad.

This incident has been reported from Sihani in Ghaziabad. When local residents went to nearest police station, the police personnel showed laxity in registering a case in this regard which infuriated the people who went on rampage.

The furious crowd blocked NH-58 for hours over shoddiness shown by police. Later the police resorted to lathicharge to disperse the protesting crowd. Failing to remove people from the highway after lathicharge, police personnel shot rubber bullets and hurled teargas shells. The minor was missing from Wednesday and public wrath was sparked after recovery of her dead body.
