A 20-year-old woman, who is charged for a murder, has accused five cops of gang raping her for 10 days while she was inside a lock-up in Mangawan town of Rewa district in Madhya Pradesh.
The incident took place in May this year but came to light in October after a legal team comprising an Additional District Judge, a law officer and two lawyers visited the prison for inspection.
That’s when the woman complained of the same. Soon, the district judge ordered a judicial enquiry into the incident.
Rakesh Singh, Superintendent of Police (SP) at Rewa said while the woman claimed that she was gang raped between May 9 and 21, police records suggested that she along with her friend was held on May 21 ? five days after allegedly committing the murder.
However, the warden confessed that the woman had informed her about the crime.
Advocate Satish Mishra, who was one of the members of the legal team, told The Times of India, We asked why she hadn’t spoken up earlier, she said she had told the warden three months ago. Also, she pointed out, policemen had done this to her and there were policemen in jail too, so she was scared.
The woman said the cops had also threatened to frame her father in the murder case if she revealed any details of the alleged gang rape to anybody.
