A man who is accused of sexually assaulting and murdering a 7-year-old girl has been granted bail by the Madras High Court. In February, the 7-year-old was sexually assaulted then murdered & her body was burnt by the accused.

But owing to the negligence on part of the cops, the accused walked out on bail as police failed to file a charge sheet within the 90-day time period and also failed to reply to the court’s query based on the petition filed by father of the accused.

The victim’s father whose fight for justice took the disappointing turn today speaks exclusively to NewsX about the setback and the road ahead.
