- The police did not press rape charges even after arresting five men
- The police pressured relatives, well wishers to withdraw complaint
- Delhi Commission for Women has now served notice to the police
In a case reminiscent of Nirbhaya gangrape and murder, the relatives of a minor girl approached the Delhi Commission for Women (DCW) for help saying that their daughter was pushed off the terrace of the house after she was gangraped. The girl succumbed to her injuries on January 20.
The relatives say that though the police have arrested five men, they haven’t slapped charges of rape, murder, kidnapping, POCSO and destruction of evidence on them in the FIR. Moreover, the president of the resident’s welfare association in the area had been receiving calls to withdraw the complaint.
The girl went missing after her job training in Connaught Place on 16 January 2019. After her relatives lodged a missing person’s complaint at Connaught Place Police Station, they were told that she was found injured in Karol Bagh and was admitted to Lady Hardinge Hospital.
By the time they reached Lady Hardinge Hospital, the girl had been moved to Safdarjang Hospital.
DCW chief Swati Maliwal has issued a notice to the police and has asked for reasons why the relevant charges were not pressed. The Commission pulled up the police for not intimating it about the horrific incident. It has also sought details of police personnel who tried intimidation techniques so that the complaint could be withdrawn.
The girl’s statement could not be recorded as she succumbed before regaining enough strength to talk with the police. The police said they had received information about the injured girl on the morning of January 17 but there were no eyewitnesses.
Delhi Commission for Women chief Swati Maliwal said that the Commission will provide full support to the victim’s family.
“Crimes against women and girls are growing in the Capital. This girl went through unbearable suffering before succumbing to her injuries. She was from a very poor background and her father had already expired a few years back. The Commission shall leave no stone unturned to seek justice for her. We will also file an application in the court to seek victim compensation for the family,” she said.
