She died around 2.40 am today, the hospital sources said. "The child had a successful surgery and was recuperating in the ICU. She was under observation for 48 hours. But it seems the trauma was too much for her to bear."
She could have developed some lung infection, a senior doctor of the hospital said and added, "But we will have to wait for the autopsy which will be conducted before the body is handed over to her family."
She was then brought to SSKM Hospital, where doctors found seven needles inserted in her body in such a way that they had pierced her organs. Her tormentor, a former home guard, has been booked under POCSO Act and police are on the look out for him, a senior state police officer said.
