Book cops who arrested innocent youth in gang-rape case: Ajay

Staff Reporter, Bhopal

The Congress on Sunday said the gang-rape of a 19-year-old girl in the heart of the city was a blot on the BJP Government in the state. Leader of Opposition in the State Assembly, Ajay Singh, said the CM should show sensitivity towards the innocent youth who was arrested and brutally thrashed by the police.

He said the youth is not receiving treatment as he is too poor. He said compensation of Rs 5 lakh should be provided to the youth as compensation. He said criminal case should be registered against the cops for giving third-degree torture to an innocent person to force him to accept his guilt.

He said arresting an innocent youth is an equally serious issue. Police have tarnished the social prestige of the youth and they should be held accountable for the same.

Singh also slammed police for its lackadaisical attitude in registering the complaint of the rape survivor and criticised Home Minister Bhupendra Singh over his absence from the State capital when the heinous crime took place four days back.

He said CM Shivraj Singh Chouhan should pull up his Home Minister as well as the DGP as the shameful incident took place right in the middle of the capital and is a blot on the face of the BJP Government.

“If such a serious crime can take place in the State capital and police is dilly-dally on filing an FIR, then one can imagine the situation in rural areas,” the Congress leader said.

The survivor, daughter of a police couple, was allegedly raped by four men on Tuesday night in the vicinity of the Habibganj railway station here. The accused have been arrested.

Fund girl’s education

Ajay Singh has also asked the government to bear the entire cost of the education of the survivor of gang-rape and her education should be provided in such place where she could forget the trauma of the incident.

Where are Maitri Mahila police vehicles

Ajay Singh also questioned the missing ‘Maitri’ Mahila police vehicles that were launched with much fanfare two months ago. About 30 two-wheelers had been given to women cops in a programme attended by home minister Bhupendra Singh.

These two-wheeler borne women cops were to patrol the harassment and eve-teasing prone areas in the capital. “Where these vehicles are and what are the achievements of this special team during past two months?” Singh asked.
