Protesters against the murder of the Aligarh child.

New Delhi: A two-and-a-half-year-old girl in Uttar Pradesh’s Aligarh was brutally murdered after her parents allegedly failed to repay a loan of ₹10,000.

The brutal murder, where the minor was strangled to death and her eyes gouged out, has sent shockwaves across the country, with several politicians demanding the strictest possible punishment for the accused.

The accused were identified as Zahid and Aslam and a case was registered against both for murder and kidnapping.

Police, on Friday, said they will probe the case under the National Security Act and transfer it to a fast-track court.

Aligarh senior superintendent of police, Akash Kulhary, said, “We are proceeding with it as an NSA case, we will try to get it to a fast track court. There is no mention of rape or acid in the post-mortem report. Five police officials have been suspended.”

BSP chief Mayawati took to Twitter and said the UP government must act against the perpetrators and send them behind bars.

Meanwhile, Congress president Rahul Gandhi also condemned the crime and in a tweet, said, “The horrific murder of a little girl in Aligarh, UP has shocked and disturbed me. How can any human being treat a child with such brutality? This terrible crime must not go unpunished. The UP police must act swiftly to bring the killers to justice.”
