Lucknow, Sept 29: A girl from a scheduled caste, who was brutally assaulted after being gang-raped by four youths in Uttar Pradesh's Hathras district, a few days ago, died at a hospital in Delhi on Tuesday.

According to the police sources, all the four accused, who hailed from the native village of the victim, have been arrested.

The victim had suffered serious injuries on her neck, face, back and stomach and was rushed to Safdarjung Hospital in Delhi on Monday, after her condition worsened.

The perpetrators tried to strangle her and a portion of her tongue was also chopped. She was paralysed and had to be put on a ventilator.

The family members alleged that the police registered the case of gang-rape almost a week after the incident.

The police, however, denied any laxity in this regard.

The incident triggered a massive outrage with the opposition leaders targeting chief minister Yogi Adityanath for failing to ensure the safety of the women in the state.

''Recurring incidents of rapes have shaken the state....the responsibility lies with the CM,'' Congress general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra said in a tweet.

Priyanka, who spoke to the family members of the victim on telephone, was likely to visit them in the next few days, sources in the UP Congress said.

''We can not expect anything from this government....it is an insensitive government,'' Samajwadi Party (SP) president Akhilesh Yadav said.

BSP supremo Mayawati demanded stern punishment be meted out to the accused.

Bengaluru, Oct 15: The flood situation in Karnataka worsened further on Thursday with several parts of north Karnataka inundated due to torrential rains and release of water from major dams.

Yadgir, Raichur, Ballari, Bidar, Vijayapura, Bagalkote, Belagavi, Dakshina Kannada, Udupi, Uttara Kannada, Gadag, Koppal, Haveri and Dharwad were the worst affected due to floods.

According to the Karnataka State Natural Disaster Management Centre, the floodgates of all the major dams have been opened resulting in water gushing into villages and formation of islands at different places.

Dams which were filled to the brim were Linganamakki, Supa, Varahi, Harangi, Hemavathi, Krishna Raja Sagar, Kabini, Bhadra, Tungabhadra, Ghataprabha, Malaprabha, Almatti and Narayanapura.

An overflowing river Bhima has wreaked havoc in Kalaburagi and Yadgir districts whereas water level in Krishna river at Devasugur in Raichur district is rising at an alarming level.

The Central Water Commission too warned that River Bhima at Deongaon Bridge in Afzalpur Taluk of Kalaburagi was rising and "is expected to cross danger level by this evening".

The river in Yadgir district was expected to go very near high flood level by Wednesday afternoon.

The Commission has also stated that though the water level of River Kagna at Malkhed in Kalaburagi District was receding, it continued to flow at an alarming level.

According to sources in the Karnataka Disaster Management Authority, as many as 515 animals lost their lives while 4,782 people have been shifted to 36 relief camps opened by the district administration.

The district authorities in SBidar and Vijayapura have opened relief camps for flood-hit people.

The NDRF team rescued people stranded at Haragadde, Karakalagadde in Raichur in the temporary island due to the sudden release of water from the dam across Krishna river due to the rising level.

This is the third wave of floods in the state in the past three months.

Floods had been reported at various places in the state in August and September and on both the occasions, the Central team had visited to inspect rain-related damage.
