In a shocking incident, two men—a private bus driver and conductor—murdered a 14-day-old infant while attempting to rape the child's mother in Bareilly.
According to media reports, the incident occurred when the 28-year-old victim was returning home along with her child after attending a family function in a nearby village.
In her complaint, the victim alleged that she arrived at the bus station really late in the evening on Monday and decided to stay inside the bus station. Realising that the woman was alone with the child, the accused dragged her inside the bus.
When the victim tried to resist, a scuffle ensued and the men snatched the child from her and flung him to the ground. The child succumbed to the serious injuries sustained on the spot.
The police said the accused, identified as Ishwari Lal and Pannu, have been arrested.
