No cash, no cycle, this father carries her raped daughter 4km daily for treatment

This destitute father carries his nine-year-old daughter everyday to a healthcare centre which is 4 kilometers away to dress her wounds that were induced by another man who raped her brutally in June.

So what if he is unable to afford even bicycle, it that did not stop him to misses an appointment for her minor daughter.

According to a report in Hindustan Times, a local auto driver lured her with chocolates and raped in Jharkhand’s Hatiapata village area. She was left bleeding with a ruptured intestine by a riverside. She somehow managed to crawled back home, which was a kilometre away and told her parents about the horrendous incident.

She was rushed to a local hospital and underwent a colectomy for removal of ruptured intestine after being referred to Ranchi where her bleeding was brought under control.

She was discharged from hospital but her wounds need to be dressed regularly. “So what if I do not have a cycle or a motorbike? She is my baby, I cannot dump her. I want her to recover at the earliest and for that I have to take her to the doctor every day,” said the poor labourer,

The burden of the treatment has affected the family’s financial position and put them under debt. “God knows how many more days we will have to suffer like this. I wish a doctor could come to my home and dress the wounds of my daughter but that’s a dream for us,” the victim’s father told Hindustan Times.

The young girl identified the accused after police arrested him while trying to rape another minor.

Meanwhile, B P Singh, Ghatsila sub-divisional officer has said that he was aware of the girl’s condition and will see what can be done to help her recover faster.
