MP woman alleges gangrape by five cops for 10 days in lock-up | India News

BHOPAL: A 20-year-old woman has alleged that she was kept in a lock-up and raped for 10 days in May this year by five police personnel, including the police station in-charge and sub-divisional police officer, in Mangawan of MP’s Rewa district.
The woman is an accused in a murder case and is now in jail custody. She made the allegation before an additional district judge and a team of lawyers when they had gone to inspect the prison on October 10. The district judge then ordered a judicial inquiry and wrote to the Rewa SP Rakesh Singh to take action. The SP said he was yet to get the letter. The woman says she was raped between May 9 and May 21, while police say she was arrested on May 21.
The woman alleges she was kept in the lock-up and raped by the SDOP, police station in-charge and three constables. A female constable had protested but was rebuked by her seniors, she told the legal team in prison on October 10. Under Supreme Court orders, legal teams routinely visit female inmates in prison and submit reports. “When we asked why she hadn’t spoken up earlier, she said she had told the warden three months ago,” said advocate Satish Mishra, who was part of the legal team. The warden acknowledged that the detainee had told her about the gangrape.
“Her statement was recorded by additional district judge and placed before the chief judicial magistrate, who then submitted it to the district judge. On October 14, the judge ordered a judicial probe and wrote to the SP,” president of Rewa district bar association, Rajendra Pandey, told TOI on Sunday.
