In the incident, a teenage girl was raped by six people in front of her father. Police said the 19-year-old filed the complaint on Wednesday. In her complaint, she had alleged that the youths belonged to her village.
She said the six accused had knocked at her door and on Tuesday night and had asked her for water to drink. However, when she opened the door, they allegedly barged in and pulled her out with them.
The survivor told a leading portal that she was then taken to a deserted field near her house and was raped by the six accused who had taken her father hostage and tied him to a tree.
She said the accused had asked her and her father not to go to the police. Kishanganj Superintendent of Police Kumar Ashish said the case had been filed. The police also stated that currently, the accused are on the run and have not been arrested as yet.
This incident is reminiscent of another incident that occurred on February 5. In Uttarakhand, a girl was allegedly raped by her father’s co-worker. The accused raped a four-year-old after tempting her with a chocolate while she was playing outside her house.
Last month, a rape victim allegedly committed suicide in UP’s Gonda after the accused were given a clean chit, said reports. Her husband said, “Police didn’t conduct a thorough investigation and she didn’t get justice.”
The 35-year-old woman reportedly hanged herself from the roof at home on Monday. Reports said that in September 2018, the woman and her husband had tried to set themselves afire outside Vidhan Bhawan in Lucknow to highlight her plight.
Then also, they had accused the police of laxity in the probe.
The mother of two had accused Shankar Dayal and his brother Ashok Kumar, of the same area, of raping her several times in August. The case was investigated by the local police before it was handed over to the district crime branch. However, the accused were given a clean chit by the investigation officers in December, said reports.
The two accused were on the run. Following the suicide, the SP suspended both the investigating officers and sent the Kernalganj station house officer to the police lines.
