Rohtak, Haryana : Threatening, harassing further led to this brutal gang rape and there was reminiscence of the Nirbhaya gang rape in Sonepat, Rohtak. The gruesome incident took place weeks after the Haryana government launched a special drive teams called ‘Operation Durga’ to stop harassment of women in public places in the state, which has one of the worst sex ratio in the country.
A 20 year old Dalit woman was kidnapped from Sonipat on May 9. She was “brutally raped, tortured and murdered, her mutilated body was found in Rohtak” two days later, Haryana’s DGP Akil Ahmad said. She was brutally raped and killed by her jilted lover and his friends who smashed her face with a brick and crushed the body under the wheels of their car to conceal her identity and “some sharp-edged objects may have been inserted in her private parts”, police said on Saturday. “He was putting pressure on her to marry him and used to threaten her. A week ago, he stopped her when she was returning from work. When she resisted, he threatened and abused her. She slapped him and ran home,” said the deceased mother in her statement to the police.
The Haryana police have registered a case under under IPC 365, 302,376 A,D, 34 and 328 against the two accused arrested in connection with the gangrape and murder.”Post-mortem report states that the cause of death is head injury. Blunt force injuries and multiple wounds (were) found on skull and scalp. Post -mortem further states that Oesophagus was missing and gnawing effects were seen over chest of the victim in Rohtak gangrape and murder case,” read ANI’s tweets.
The post-mortem report of victim states that face, tongue, eyes and ears of the victim were totally distorted. Her face was not identifiable, when police recovered her body from an isolated plot in Rohtak on May 11. “The findings suggest that it was a brutal rape and murder,” said Dr S K Dhatterwal, head of the department of forensic medicine at the Post Graduate Institute of Medical Sciences (PGIMS) in Rohtak, who conducted the post-mortem examination.
As per India Today news, National Commission for Women Chairperson Lalitha Kumaramangalam has taken a suo motu notice in Rohtak gang-rape and murder case. NCW member Rekha Sharma said that there was “need to be more swift and sensitive enough to handle these cases.” She also said that the NCW will “monitor” the progress in the case till the end.
The suspects, Sumit (24) and Vikas (28), were later arrested by the Haryana police and charges of rape, murder and abduction which was formed by the Special Investigation Team (SIT). The victim’s relatives have alleged that police ignored a complaint lodged against Sumit much before the crime occurred. “We had approached police with a complaint of harassment against the main suspect a month ago, but no action was taken,” a relative of the victim told reporters in Sonepat. “However, later the complainant and her mother again came to the police station and said they had struck a compromise, and there no need for police action,” the officer claimed. Rohtak Range Inspector General of Police Navdeep Virk said that the family gave the names of six more persons last evening.
Following the incident, Congress president Sonia Gandhi yesterday expressed deep shock, saying it highlighted the need for “revisiting” the issue of women safety.
