Unnao: The Uttar Pradesh Police claimed Friday to have solved the suspected poisoning of three Dalit girls in Unnao district with the arrest of a 28-year-old man, Vinay, and the detention of a minor, 15. They said Vinay had confessed to mixing insecticide in water to target the eldest girl, 17, after she spurned his advances. All the three girls, who were cousins, reportedly drank the water inadvertently.

While the younger cousins, 13, and 16, had been found dead on Wednesday evening, the 17-year-old is admitted in hospital. The three had gone to the family fields to collect fodder, as per their relatives.

The police said Vinay decided to poison the 17-year-old after she refused to give him her mobile number. Vinay, who belongs to a village near the cousins’, had reportedly got friendly with them during the lockdown, and they met up in the fields. The minor is a friend of Vinay. Like the cousins, the accused belong to a Scheduled Caste.

At a press conference held in Unnao Friday evening, Lucknow Range Inspector General (IG) Laxmi Singh said, “The accused were taken into custody from an intersection nearby. One of them is Vinay alias Lambu and the other is a minor. Both are residents of the village neighbouring the girls’. Vinay’s farm is adjacent to the girls’ farm and the accused used to meet them regularly since the lockdown. After interrogation, Vinay confessed to the crime and told us the whole sequence of events.”

The police repeated that they had not found any evidence of assault. “According to the autopsy report, no external or internal injury was found on the girls. There were no signs of assault, and the statement given by the accused does not mention any assault on the girls either,” the IG said, adding that Vinay had denied tying up the girls, as alleged by some members of the family.
