In a heart-wrenching incident, a 17-year-old girl lost a hand and both legs after she was thrown in front of a train after she tried to stop two men from sexually harassing her, her family alleged on Wednesday. The incident took place in the CB Ganj area of Bareilly City on Tuesday, they further said. The girl has also suffered multiple fractures in the incident. 

Meanwhile, the police have arrested one person, the district magistrate said. Four policemen have also been suspended for negligence. The father of the intermediate student alleged that a youth and his companion used to harass his daughter when she went to tuition in the evenings.

The girl's parents had also complained to the family of the accused. On Tuesday, the girl was found in a bloodied state with her legs and one hand amputated near the Khadau railway crossing. She was admitted to a private hospital where she was operated on.

According to Superintendent of Police (City) Rahul Bhati, it cannot be said yet whether the student was thrown in front of the train or she was injured by some other means. The girl was allegedly stopped by the youths when she was returning home from her tuition class and misbehaved with her. When she protested, they threw her in front of the train, the police said.

Bareilly District Magistrate Ravindra Kumar told reporters that Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has taken cognisance of the matter and an assistance of Rs 5 lakh will be provided to the girl's family. Considering the seriousness of her condition, she is being shifted to a higher medical centre. The government will bear the entire cost of her treatment, Kumar said.

Senior officials visited the girl in hospital to enquire about her health. Hospital Director Dr OP Bhaskar said the girl's legs were amputated below the knee. She also lost a hand in the incident. Her condition is worrying. Bhati has been directed to probe the case, a senior official said. The girl's father alleged that he had complained to the police about the matter but they did not even visit their village to investigate.
