On learning about the incident, the mother of the rape survivor on April 22 filed a complaint against the four men. Following this, the girl was called on April 26th to record her statement during which filthy officers on duty raped her.
The aunt and two men have been arrested. Raids are on to trace the other accused,” said Lalitpur’s superintendent of police Nikhil Pathak. “It is part of our investigation to find out why the rape case was not filed when the victim reached the police station for the first time (April 26),” said Lalitput’s Superintendent of Police Nikhil Pathak.
The incident came to light when the girl was handed over to the Childline team where she narrated her ordeal and the police began the probe.
