Victim of a gang rape, a 13-year-old girl sexually assaulted by the police officer in charge of taking her complaint

Dark business in India. A 13-year-old girl went to the police station to report that she had been the victim of a gang rape. A few days earlier, four men had managed to lure him to the neighboring state of Madhya Pradesh. They would then have sexually assaulted her before bringing her back to her village in the district of Lalitpur in Uttar Pradesh before fleeing, reports the Daily Mail. In shock, the teenager went to file a complaint at the police station with her aunt. But the ordeal was far from over. Indeed, once at the police station, the officer in charge of taking her testimony led the young girl into a room where he in turn raped her in front of her aunt before fleeing.

Lalitpur district police chief Nikhil Pathak told reporters the officer was suspended. ” He’s a named criminal, so we’ve formed teams to arrest him “. Luckily, law enforcement managed to get their hands on him. He was then charged under the strict POCSO (Protection of Children from Sexual Offenses) law introduced in 2012. He faces life imprisonment.

“I am 100% innocent”

ANINewsUP, however, claims that the suspect denies the facts. ” Investigative agencies should be called in to investigate the matter with complete honesty. After the investigation, if it’s proven that I’m guilty, then… I’m 100% innocent. »

On social media, Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra strongly criticized the Uttar Pradesh state government. ” The gang rape of a 13-year-old girl in Lalitpur, then her rape by the police in charge when she went to file a complaint, shows how genuine law and order reforms are suppressed in the noise bulldozers. If police stations are not safe for women, where will they go to file their complaints? she said. A case that causes indignation.
