19-yr-old CBSE Topper Abducted, Sedated, Gang-Raped In Haryana

REWARI — A 19-year-old college student was allegedly kidnapped and gang-raped by a group of men at Kanina in Haryana’s Mahen­dergarh district, police said on Thursday.

The girl was gang-raped till she fell un­conscious. She was later dumped at near a bus stop in Kanina.

The second-year student was allegedly kidnapped by three young men on Wednes­day when she was on her way to a coaching centre near her village.

The girl said she was kidnapped and forced into a car and was taken to a secluded place. She said she was dragged by the ac­cused to a field.

The girl was gang-raped after being of­fered a drink laced with sedatives. A few other men, who were already at the field, also took turns to rape the college girl, police said.

The victim said all the men were from her village.

According to an official of Women Police station, Rewari, a ‘zero FIR’ was lodged on the complaint of the woman, and a probe was being conducted by the Mahendergarh police as the incident occurred in the area under their jurisdiction.

Zero FIR can be filed in any police sta­tion, irrespective of place of incident or juris­diction and the same can be later transferred to the police station concerned.

Medical examination of the woman has been conducted, senior police officer A S Chawla said, adding, “We are looking to ar­rest the three accused… they dropped her back (at the bus shelter) and called her par­ents to tell them about her location.”

Parents of the victim alleged that the po­lice initially refused to take their complaint and did not even file an FIR.

“Police has failed to take any action. We were made to run from pillar to post before our complaint was taken. The FIR was reg­istered at 1 am as police kept citing jurisdic­tion issues making us shuttle between Re­wari and Kanina. All we want is justice,” the victim’s mother said.

The girl is said to be brilliant in aca­demics and was also felicitated by the gov­ernment after she topped the CBSE board examination.

“My daughter was rewarded by Modiji af­ter she topped the CBSE board exams. Modiji says ‘beti padho, beti bacho’, but how? I want justice for my daughter. Police have taken no action yet,” the victim’s mother told news agency ANI.
