A 13-year-old rape victim allegedly kidnapped her rapist's five-year-old son, beheaded him, burnt the body and buried it under bricks. The murder came to light when the body of the child was dragged out by dogs. Subsequently, the family of the boy were informed of the murder.

According to reports, the 13-year-old girl wanted to seek revenge from the accused rapist. She was allegedly raped on 18 October. The incident occurred in the tiny village of Khair, in the northern Indian state of Uttar Pradesh.

The girl said in her statement that she was lured by the man identified as Rinku, who offered her whitener -- a chemical used to erase print from paper, which is often misused as an intoxicant -- and raped her.

She added that she wanted to seek revenge from the man, which is why a few days later she led the rapist's son away from his home where he was playing and beheaded him. The police have registered a case of murder against the girl and have sent her to a juvenile home. The father of the boy has been booked for raping a minor.

The decapitated body of the alleged tormentor's five-year-old son, which was half burnt, was found wrapped in a polythene bag hidden under a pile of bricks.

"Two cases have been registered - one of murder and the other of rape. Both the cases will be investigated. Family of the rape accused met me today [25 October] alleging that the rape charges are fake. It will be investigated. There are certain things that need to be kept in mind -- the girl is a drug addict and has often got into scuffles with people over minor issue -- she has got into fights for even Rs 10," a police officer was quoted as saying by Times of India.

"Her mother is unwell and her father is a labourer, she is coming from a very poor family background. There is no family discipline either. She has been spotted consuming drugs. A fair inquiry will be done," circle officer OP Singh said.
