Police accused of abandoning girl

Three police officers and a town official are being held in custody after allegations they abandoned a badly injured teenager in a ditch because they thought she was a mentally ill vagrant.

The girl surnamed Wu, 18, a senior at No 4 Guoyang County Middle School in Anhui province, was spotted lying half-naked and semi-conscious in an alleyway by a passer-by.

The police officers in Gaogong town, Guoyang, who responded to the emergency 110 call, believed Wu was "homeless and in a confused state of mind", and decided to refer the matter to Zhou Yuzhu at the Gaogong civil affairs bureau, authorities said.

Instead of transferring Wu to hospital, however, Zhou put her in a car of the civil affairs bureau and told the driver to dump her in the neighboring county, Taihe. Local media reported that she was later discovered in a ditch by passers-by and rushed to Taihe People's Hospital, where doctors discovered she had a fractured skull.

"The officers from Gaogong town police station didn't carry out further investigations on the spot. Instead, they assumed the teenager was a homeless person with a clouded mind and called the civil affairs department to pick her up," said Deng Wei, a spokesman for the Guoyang public security bureau.

"From what we can gather, she was actually attacked on her way home from school," he said.
