She ‘killed’ to escape rape, was raped in custody

Express news service Posted online: Thu Aug 25 2011, 02:45 hrs
Patna : An 18-year-old girl from Chhapra village, who was arrested for allegedly killing a boy for trying to rape her, was raped in police custody at the Manjhi Police Station lock-up after being drugged. A medical examination has confirmed the assault. Though no FIR has been lodged so far, the Mankhi police station in-charge has been suspended for “dereliction of duty” and 10 policemen, including four sub-inspectors, have been transferred.

The matter came to light when the victim complained to Saran Jail Superintendent. Saran DIG Sunil Kumar said: “We are verifying her allegations. Preliminary investigations suggest rape. An FIR would be lodged soon.” Since she was allegedly drugged, she has not named anyone.

The girl was arrested on August 14 for killing a 16-year-old boy and was taken on police remand on August 18. She spent the night at the Manjhi police lock-up, with reportedly no woman constable present.

She was produced in court on August 19 and is now in judicial custody.
