A 10-year-old girl died in a hospital in Mumbai Tuesday night ten days after being brutally gang raped by four teenagers.

An officer from Turbhe police station said that on June 16 the girl was lured by the accused into a secluded area in Hanuman Nagar on the pretext that they would pay her for work.

“All the accused knew each other as well as the victim. They raped her repeatedly. She was rushed to the hospital after her parents got to know of her plight but she lost her life on Tuesday,” the official said.

According to officials, the accused are in the 13-16 age group and two of them are brothers. One of the four had raped her on a previous occasion, NDTV reported. All of the accused have been arrested.

The victim is believed to have been rushed to a hospital in Vashi after she developed a high fever four days after the attack.

When her condition worsened she was transferred to the paediatric intensive care unit at the DY Patil Hospital in Nerul, where she died, the Mumbai Mirror reported.

A string of brutal gang rapes in India have made headlines in recent months, including the fatal gang rape of a 23-year-old student on a bus last December.
