Despite Central Govt's harsh anti-rape law, yet another rape incident comes to fore in Kathua
4/21/2018 11:50:56 PM
Early Times Report
JAMMU, Apr 21: The central government today introduced a tougher law to deal with the growing incidents of minor girls being abused sexually.
Under the new law, an accused, who abuses a minor below the age of 12, will get the death penalty, however, such heinous crimes, it seems are unstoppable despite implementation of stringent laws. After the infamous Rassana rape and murder incident, an alleged case of rape with a minor girl living in Nagali village of tehsil Basohli in Jammu region's district Kathua has come to the fore.
The victim girl along with her father after knocking every possible door in the hope of getting justice now had to appear before the media persons in Jammu so that their voice could be heard by the authorities concerned.
Talking to media persons, the father of the victim minor girl told that his daughter was raped a year ago by a boy, who lives in a nearby village Albanjal. The father of the victim said that after committing the rape, the alleged boy threatened to kill his victimized daughter if she narrated the incident to anybody.
He further said that we came to know of the happening only after his daughter suddenly fell sick following which they approached a doctor, who informed that she was pregnant adding that then they filed an FIR against the boy before the police but he is yet to be arrested.
The ill-fated father of the minor girl told the media that his daughter got pregnant due to the rape committed upon by the accused boy adding that she later on gave birth to a child at a tender age which has led to her being defamed in the society.
The father said that the police looks like working under pressure in the case as it didn't even bother to collect the blood samples of the accused due to which he is still roaming free.
The 14-year-old girl, carrying a baby in her arms today appeared before the media at the press club here demanding justice for her and the child.
Accompanied by her father, the minor girl alleged she was raped by a 28-year-old man, who is from "an affluent family and enjoys political patronage", and said "nobody is listening to the poor family".
"We knocked the door of the local police station and police's higher-ups but justice eluded us so far," the girl, holding the one-year-old child in her lap, said. The claim is denied by the police.
Station House Officer of Basohli police station Sukhbir Singh said the accused got bail from a court and later his DNA test did not match with the child. The girl belongs to Kathua district, which has been in the news for the past few weeks after an eight-year-old girl was brutally raped and killed.
The girl was also carrying a copy of the writ petition the accused had filed before the High Court in June last year in which he claimed he was being falsely implicated in the rape case and demanded quashing of the FIR against him.
He also demanded a DNA sample test of the minor girl and the child to prove his "innocence". "The DNA test was conducted but it was fudged to save the accused," the father of the girl claimed.
He alleged that he was offered money to "stay silent". "But I don't need money but justice for my daughter and her child".
SHO Sukhbir Singh said, "There was no question of any wrongdoing on our part. Soon after a case was registered against the accused, we tried to arrest him. But he later moved to the court and we were directed not to arrest him until the DNA report is received,"
On the claim that the DNA sample was not sealed properly to save the accused, the SHO said it was collected and sealed by the doctors in presence of witnesses.
"There is no truth in the claim. We have dispatched the sample to a laboratory in Delhi and it confirmed that while the girl is the biological mother of the child, the accused was exonerated," he said. Singh said the investigation in the case was still going on.
He said the girl, when questioned by a woman officer after the receipt of the DNA report, said she did not know the name of the person who raped her. "We have not closed the case and in fact the father of the victim was asked to present the girl before woman cell only a few days back. However, he did not turn up," he said.
