Early Times Report
JAMMU, May 16: Within a few days of infamous minor's rape incident in Kashmir, another such case came to fore in Jammu on Thursday when the family of a minor rape victim approached Jammu and Kashmir High Court for registration of FIR as police refused to register the same.
As per family of the victim, the accused had taken their minor daughter for an outing, on the morning of May 11, 2019 from Jammu to Himachal Pradesh.
"He kept the girl in a room and raped her for three to four days. When our daughter did not return home, we approached Police Station Janipur on May 11 and requested them to register a missing or kidnapping complaint but officials at the police station refuse to accept our complaint", the family alleged, adding that after repeatedly raping the girl, the accused dropped her at Jammu on May 15 and fled away.
The family further informed that their daughter narrated the whole ordeal to them. "She had gone with her friend for a visit to the city and he offered a drink, after which she lost her consciousness and when she regained her consciousness, she woke up at Jammu bus stand. When she asked him about his plans, the accused told her that they would return in the evening and she again lost her consciousness and when she woke up, she found herself in Himachal Pradesh", the family alleged, adding that the accused raped her repeatedly for three days.
The family members further alleged that when the approached the police station Janipur along with their daughter, they once again refused to register FIR. "Instead of registering FIR, keeping in view the gravity of the crime and age of our daughter, who is a minor, Police are asking us to wait till she turns major and then they can solemnize the marriage of their daughter with the accused", the family alleged, adding that dejected over the insensitive approach of the police, they finally knocked on the door of the court.
Advocate Sandeep Gupta told that police was delaying the registration of FIR as the girl's family was from outside the state while the accused was a local. "It seems police is buying time, the medical of the girl would not corroborate the rape as the medical-evidences get destroyed after few days", Gupta said, adding that rape is a serious crime and as per law, the police is duty-bound to register FIR instantly, but it was totally unfortunate that police was delaying the registration of FIR.
SHO Janipur Harmohinder Singh refused that family did not approach in the Police Station with rape and kidnapping complaint. He also said that if the complaint would come, the FIR would be registered.
