Transfer rape case to another district, Karnal SP urges IGP

Tribune News Service

Karnal, September 6

After questions were raised over the working of the police in the high-profile gang rape case registered on the complaint of a woman teacher against the owner of the same private school and a tehsildar, the Karnal Superintendent of Police (SP) Surinder Singh Bhoria has requested IGP Karnal Range, Bharti Arora to transfer the case to another district.

He has written a letter in this regard to the IGP requesting her to transfer the gang rape case as well as the extortion case against the woman teacher. She was arrested in this case allegedly for accepting Rs 7.25 lakh for withdrawing the rape charges against the owner and tehsildar.

She is now out on bail and had accused Shiv Kumar Gonder, son of an Independent MLA from Nilokheri Dharampal Gonder, for trapping her in the "false" extortion case in connivance with the school owner and the police.

She has also produced some audio clips before the media which are said to be of a conversation between her and the MLA's son. However, the MLA's son has denied the allegations.

"We have registered two separate cases ndash;- one of gang rape against the owner of a private school and a tehsildar on the complaint of the woman teacher on July 6 under Section 376D, 323, 506, 34 of the IPC. It is being investigated by SIT head DSP Jagdeep Singh. Another FIR was registered on August 21 under Section 384, 389, 506 of the IPC against the woman teacher on the complaint of the school owner. She was arrested by the police," said SP Bhoria.

"These cases are being highlighted in social media to a great extent and unnecessarily, the district police are being dragged in the controversy by the levelling of allegations and counter-allegations by both parties. Many audio recordings are being played in the media which the woman has never produced before the SIT during the course of the investigation," said the SP in the letter, a copy of which is with The Tribune.

IGP Bharti Arora said, "I have received the letter from Karnal SP to transfer the case. The order to transfer the case will be taken on Monday."
