A 14-year-old girl died Sunday in another case of a lower-caste woman allegedly being raped by the same man twice in India.
The victim was kidnapped in May by the same suspect who allegedly attacked her in December of last year, according to a police report filed by her parents.
The suspect was reportedly out on bail while he awaited trial for his first rape of the teenager.
The girl belonged to the Dalit caste, Swati Maliwal, Chairperson of the Delhi Commission for Women, traditionally regarded as "unclean" and the lowest of the low.
Her parents told police she had been forced to drink chemicals by her alleged attacker.
She died on Sunday after being admitted to hospital in June after falling ill. The suspect was re-arrested following her death, police said.
