The victim’s mutilated body was found in a field, with multiple injuries due to assault with objects ranging from car tools to earthen pots.

A Delhi court in February 2014 convicted three men for raping and killing the 19-year-old woman in 2012 and awarded them the death penalty.

On February 9, 2012, three men — Ravi Kumar, Rahul and Vinod — had kidnapped the victim while she was on her way home with three of her colleagues who lived in the same neighbourhood.

The victim was reportedly taken to a mustard field about 30 km away in the village of Rodhai village of Rewari district, Haryana, where the three took turns to brutally rape her. After raping the girl, the three, as per reports, poured acid in her eyes and pushed broken liquor bottles in her private parts. After that she was left there to die. A case was registered regarding this at outer Delhi’s Chhawala (Najafgarh) police station.

The incident had take place just a few months before the Nirbhaya rape case.

According to the prosecution, the offence was brutal in nature as they first kidnapped the woman, raped her, killed her and dumped her body in the field in Rodhai village in Haryana’s Rewari district.
