A 14-year-old gang-raped by 3 youth – Adil, Hasan, one other – and her mother were left with no option but to arrive at Meerut SSP’s office with a six months old foetus in a bag on Friday. The girl first approached Lisari Gate police station SHO Mohd Aslam to file a complaint, but was turned away, forcing her to appeal to the SSP.
Times of India reports –
“The teenager alleged that she was repeatedly gang-raped by three youths for eight months and was threatened with country-made weapons whenever she tried to protest.
The survivor complained that the youths also filmed her and said that they would kill her mother if she “ever opens her mouth”. “They continued to rape me for months and when they came to know that I was pregnant, they forcibly inserted a pill into my mouth which killed my unborn child,” the teenager told the SSP.
According to the survivor’s mother who accompanied her, “I live in a rented house at Lisari Gate and work as a domestic help. I am mostly not home during the day. On Tuesday, my daughter complained of severe stomach pain and I took her to a doctor, who told me that she was six months pregnant and that the foetus had died.”
“I immediately confronted the two youths named by my daughter. They abused me and threatened to kill me if I approached police. I even visited Lisari Gate police station, but the officials there refused to file a complaint. I had no option but to approach the SSP,” the girl’s mother said.
Meanwhile, SSP Rajesh Kumar Pandey directed Lisari Gate police to file a case against the accused immediately. “The woman never came to the police station. If she had, we would have definitely filed a case. We have now registered an FIR against Mohd Adil, Mohd Hasan and their unknown accomplice under IPC sections 376D (gang rape), 313 (causing miscarriage without woman’s consent), along with sections of POCSO Act. We have arrested Hasan so far,” said Lisari Gate police station SHO Mohd Aslam.”
