Jaipur, Apr 16: A 12-year-old girl in Neemrana jumped off the terrace of her house yo escape her father who was brutally beating her up in broad daylight. The girl has fractures in both her legs and has been admitted to the ICU of Sachkhand Hospital. The incident happened on Sunday, April 15, in the Vijay Bagh area in Neemrana where the family from Bihar was staying in a rented house. While the father was beating up his daughter, a man in the neighbourhood made a video of the incident on his mobile phone.
Reports say that the 12-year-old girl was speaking over her mobile phone on the terrace. Enraged by her being on the phone, the father, who was said to be drunk, came on the terrace and started beating up his daughter brutally. To save herself from the violent father, the girl jumped from the terrace and was injured severely.
The neighbours in the meanwhile watched all of this instead of coming to the girl’s rescue. After she jumped off the terrace, passersby took her to the hospital. The police reached the spot after 3 hours of the incident and have arrested the father.
According to reports, the neighbours tried calling the police, but the landline of the nearest police station was not working. Neighbours said that they tried calling the policemen on their mobile numbers but got no response. After the mediapersons in the area came to know about the incident, they also tried calling the police but got no response and hence, the cops, who had to cover just 1 km, reached the spot 3 hours later.
The girl is now said to be stable and is undergoing treatment in the hospital while the police are interrogating the father who has been arrested.
