By 25th June 2017 0 Comments


A 19-year-old woman died Saturday morning after she was thrown out of a shared taxi for allegedly resisting a rape attempt on her, in Madiaon area of Lucknow on Friday night, police said.
Kajal Gupta alias Pooja, a first year graduation student, boarded a tempo (shared taxi) from Dubagga intersection for her home in Amrapalli Yojana on IIM Road at around 9 pm.
She was returning from Rajajipuram where she had started working in a firm as a salesgirl a fortnight ago to support her family.
His father Premi Lal Gupta, who is a cart-puller, earns a meagre Rs 200 daily. She was the second among four siblings – three sisters and a brother.

Her mother Soni Gupta used to accompany her from a turn towards their colony on IIM Road but on Friday night, the tempo did not stop there and she could only hear her daughter’s screams.
When she raised an alarm, a van driver Raju chased the taxi for about 3 km when the miscreants pushed her out of the vehicle and fled.
With the help of some passers-by, Raju took the girl to a private hospital from where she was shifted to trauma centre of the King George Medical University. She, however, died during treatment early Saturday morning.
SSP Deepak Kumar said the tempo driver has been identified.
“The vehicle turned turtle after passing over a pit. However, the driver fled and other miscreants managed to escape. A probe revealed that the tempo was registered in the name of one Raju (not the van driver mentioned above). After Raju’s death, his daughter Kranti was managing its operation,” Kumar said.
