A 13-year-old girl who was allegedly gang-raped in Rangapani in Guwahati last week succumbed to her injuries on Saturday, reports said. 

The girl was admitted to Gauhati Medical College and Hospital and died there. 

She was reportedly gang-raped by three locals outside her house on December 14, when her parents were not at home and was left to die. 

The 13-year-old was rushed to a nearby healthcare after she was found unconscious the next day. 

No charges were initially filed by the family. The police were only intimated once the girl was admitted to the hospital and an FIR was lodged at Sontoli police outpost two days after the incident.

The police are yet to receive a medical report of her condition while the investigation continues. One person has been arrested so far. 

The victim's family reportedly said that she was unable to receive urgent medical treatment as she was from an economically disadvantaged background. Hospital authorities, however, disagreed to the charges.
