The victim is said to have been drugged and raped by her family's neighbour, kidnapping, torturing and raping her prior to a court hearing in May this year.
The Delhi Commission for Women (DCW) chairperson, Swati Maliwal said:
"She was forced to swallow a corrosive liquid, possibly an acid, by the man and 'died a very painful death."
She adds that the neighbour, identified simply as Shivshankar, was arrested only after the DCW became involved in the case.
Ms Maliwal tweeted:
"The girl was fed a corrosive substance which completely destroyed her internal organs and she died a very painful death.
"There are so many questions we can raise over the police action in this case? Why was the accused not arrested? Why was the Prevention of Atrocities Act not applied in this case?
"With parents of 14 year old victim. Very poor n inconsolable. How many Nirbhayas does Delhi want? We all simply wait for next Nirbhaya to die."
May her soul rest in peace.
