A 13-year-old girl who was gangraped by four men allegedly raped again by cop when she went to file complaint at police station in India

When a 13-year-old Dalit rape survivor went to the police station to submit a complaint against four men who kidnapped and gangraped her, she was allegedly raped again by the station house officer (SHO).

The incident was discovered during an NGO’s counseling, and a case was filed in Lalitpur on Tuesday, May 3.

According to the complaint made by the girl’s mother, Chandan, Rajbhan, Harishankar, and Mahendra Chaurasia abducted her daughter on April 22 and transported her to Bhopal, Madhya Pradesh, where she was sexually raped by all four accused for four days.

The accused brought the kid back on April 26 and deposited her in front of the Pali police station.

She was later handed over to her aunt.

A day later, the police called the girl to the police station to record her statement. In the evening, the girl’s aunt took her to the station house officer, Tilakdhari Saroj’s room, where he raped her, the complaint has alleged.

Once again, the girl was handed back to her aunt and her parents were allegedly kept in the dark.

On April 30, the police handed the girl over to the Childline team for counselling and she narrated her ordeal. The NGO then contacted her parents. 

An FIR was lodged on Tuesday against six persons, including the police officer and victim’s aunt under section 363, 376, 376-B, 120-B IPC, section 3, 4 POCSO and section 3(2)(V) SC/ST act.

The police have arrested four of the accused including the officer after an FIR was registered against five people. 

The police officer who was absconding was arrested from Pragyagraj on Thursday morning, May 5.  

“The aunt and three men have been arrested. Raids are on to trace the other accused,” said Lalitpur’s superintendent of police Nikhil Pathak.

“It is part of our investigation to find out why the rape case was not filed when the victim reached the police station for the first time.”
