A gang-rape survivor was allegedly set on fire by five people last year in an area the comes under the Bihar Police Station of Unnao in Uttar Pradesh. The woman had succumbed to her injuries.

The six-year-old nephew of the victim is now reported to have been abducted.

The year, the survivor was going to Rae Bareli in connection with her case, when she was set ablaze one KM from the village. She was admitted to a hospital but later died.

Bihar police station in-charge SK Singh told The Quint that the family of the missing child has now named five suspects. All of them are relatives of the accused in the previous case.

The accused of the previous case are now in jail. Their trial has begun.

The police station in-charge has claimed that no clue has been found in the case of the abducted child so far.

"On 2 October, we had gone to the farm. The child was at home. When we returned home, the child was not found there. After this we started looking for him, we also went to the police station. We filed the application there. The child has not been detected yet. Haven't even got a clue," the sister of the girl who was allegedly set ablaze last year told The Quint.

"The administration is not allowing us to meet anyone. We want to go to the Chief Minister's residence in Lucknow, ask for help. But the administration has said that there is no use to go there, we are investigating, do not get out of the house," she added.

Anand Kurkani, Unnao Superintendent of Police (SP), said: "A case of child abduction has been registered and we are investigating it."
