Kolkata, July 19 - A girl was seriously injured in West Bengal's North 24 Parganas district when a youth repeatedly assaulted her for rejecting his marriage proposal, police said Saturday.

The incident happened Friday night in Bidhananagar.

The youth is known to the girl and has been harassing her to marry him. When she yet again rejected him last night, he assaulted her... We have launched a hunt for him, a police officer said.

The victim said the youth worked with her at a shop earlier.

When I rejected his marriage proposal, he pounced upon me repeatedly hitting me. I was forced to leave my earlier job because he constantly harassed me, said the girl, adding the bystanders did not come to her rescue despite her screams.
