Gangrape: Women panel pulls up Kurukshetra cops for slow probe

Tribune News Service

Kurukshetra, July 21

Namrata Gaur, a member of the Haryana State Commission for Women, on Monday pulled up the police for slow investigation into an alleged case of gangrape of a minor in Kurukshetra.

Told cops to submit report

I have observed many flaws in the probe. The victim is still terrified and there were injection marks on her body. I've asked the police to produce a complete report at the earliest. — Namrata Gaur, member, Haryana State Commission for Women

Gaur said: "I met the 14-year-old girl and she was terrified. She had left the house on January 27 after her mother slapped her. A son of the poultry farm owner, where the parents of the minor used to work, along with two more men, took the girl to a hotel in a car and raped her after administrating intoxicating injections. Then the hotel owner and another person also raped her. A missing case was registered on January 30."

"Later, she was handed over to a woman named Kajal, who forced her into prostitution. The girl told that four to five men used to rape her in a day. A girl, however, helped her escape but she was caught again and a person named Sonu, who was already married, forcefully wed her." Gaur said: "No serious action was taken when the missing complaint was registered. It was on May 19, after the girl managed to request her neighbours, who informed the police and she was rescued. The police have so far arrested only Kajal, Sonu and Sandeep, who was at a hotel, while no action has been taken against all other accused. The probe has been poor so far."
