A Dalit girl in Delhi, who had been on life support for more than a month after she was repeatedly raped and forced to drink acid, died on Sunday.

According to NDTV, the 14-year-old girl, in a dying statement, said she was thrashed, raped “several times a day” and forced to drink acid mixed in juice. She alleged that she also was denied food.

“The man threatened to stab her with a knife… she was scared…Now her attacker is threatening my other daughter and my son. He has not gone to school for 10 days,” her mother told NDTV.

The girl was first sexually assaulted in December. The accused, who is from her neighourhood, was arrested but let off on bail. She was kidnapped again in May, allegedly by the same man, just before a court hearing on her rape case, and raped repeatedly.
