1] Rape victim’s mother wants action against IO
NOIDA: She was allegedly blackmailed, gagged, assaulted and
gang-raped. When the minor, a class X student, complained to the cops,
they revealed her identity, commented about her character and went on
to imply that “she asked for it”. And now, in a private media sting,
the investigating officer blatantly indulged in character
assassination not just of the victim, but also her family. Having too
much to handle, the victim’s mother has now submitted a written
complaint to Noida SSP Yogesh Singh and demanded strict action against
the erring cops.

The 15-year-old, who was raped twice by the same person once in May,
2011 and again in February this year, is devastated. The girl dropped
out of school after the “humiliation” and is to take her class X exams
through open learning from Monday. She has refused to eat or step out
of her house since the comments of the cops came to light.

A Dalit girl in Jhansi has alleged that she was gangraped by a group
of upper caste men. The victim, who is a minor, says the men dumped
her in a nearby forest after raping her.

The victim has also said that despite making several rounds to the
police station over the past two days, the cops are not registering a
case for rape as they are reluctant to file rape charges till a
medical examination confirms rape.
In the Barabanki district, a three-year-old, who went missing during a
function, was brutally raped and left to die in a field. The police
had to take the aid of sniffer dogs to help crack the case.
