Rapes have become very common these days; minor girls are being raped and it’s actually very shameful that such gruesome incidents are adding a black spot to our society.
Another unfortunate incident has come to light and it will bring tears to the eyes of some sensitive people. This time, a 15 year old girl was raped by a police constable in Uttar Pradesh’s Ballia district. It’s hard to believe, but it’s the fact that the rapist was a “COP”, the one who promises to protect citizens. This was not the only unfortunate thing that this poor girl had to face.
As soon as the girl’s father came to know about the incident, he had a cardiac arrest and he died on the spot. We really pity the 15 year old girl, who not only had to face this dirty act by the police constable but also had to bear the loss of her father.
The incident in detail!
The girl was raped by Constable Dharam, who was posted in Gopal Nagar’s Revati police station. As per the girl’s family, the constable caught hold of her when she left her home on Friday night for using the toilet near the police quarters.
According to reports, some youngsters heard screams from the outpost, after which they rushed there immediately. On reaching there, they were shocked to see that police constable raping her. The girl was rescued and the police constable was caught.
The worst thing happened when the girl’s 60 year old father reached there; since he couldn’t bear this shock, he got a heart attack and died. The cop got a good chance to escape, but thankfully, the locals caught him. Some police officers of another police station reached there and arrested constable Dharam.
The father’s body was immediately sent for autopsy and the minor girl was sent for medical exam. Quick action was taken against the constable and he was suspended by Sujata Singh, the superintendent of police. Kunwar Prabhat Singh, the Station Officer stated that the constable has been booked under under sections 354, 306 of IPC and 7/8 of Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act.
Currently, investigation on the matter is going on; let’s see what happens. What about the safety that is promised in every speech? If cops are doing such things, what can we expect from normal citizens?
