CHANDIGARH: A 19-year-old married woman who was gang-raped by two men on board a moving train on Monday night got no help from the Kurukshetra government railway police (GRP). The cops on duty refused to heed her complaint and put her on a Delhi-bound train. This, despite the new stringent anti-rape laws in the country.
The rape survivor then approached the police on reaching New Delhi railway station on Tuesday. The Delhi Railway cops took her to GRP police station of Faridabad where a zero FIR was registered and the case was transferred to Kurkshetra.
GRP SP Kamaldeep Goel said this was a serious lapse on the part of cops deployed at Kurukshetra police post. "We have begun investigating the gang-rape case and registered a separate FIR against the policemen for their conduct. We shall first identify the persons on duty at that time and get the rape survivor to identify those who refused to entertain her complaint,'' said the SP.
He also said that the Faridabad team had already got her medically examined.
It is learnt that the woman was returning after paying obeisance at Vaishno Devi in Jammu and Mansa Devi temple.
She alighted from the train at Karnal at around 2.45 am and boarded an electric multiple unit train. According to her complaint, two persons took her to an empty bogie and abused her. They also threatened her with dire consequences,'' said SHO of Faridabad GRP police station.
Goel said they came to know about the misconduct of Kurukshetra cops only after interacting with the rape survivor.
