Taking cognizance of a 19-year-old woman’s alleged gangrape in Bhopal on Tuesday, Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chauhan on Friday directed trial of the case in a fast-track court, ANI reported. Meanwhile, the National Commission for Women(NCW) has written to DGP Madhya Pradesh calling for strict and appropriate action against the culprits. The organisation has also asked the DGP to take action against respective officials at police stations who refused to file the complaint. It has further requested to apprise it about details of the case along with action taken by fax or email immediately.
The woman was allegedly abducted and raped by four men near railway tracks in Bhopal on Tuesday night when she was returning home after attending a coaching class, police said. Police arrested all the four accused and booked them under the relevant sections of the IPC.
In the meantime, Station House Officer (SHO) Government Railway Police (GRP) Mohit Saxena has been suspended for alleged misbehaviour during filing of complaint, reported ANI. The incident occurred around 10 PM on Tuesday in vicinity of the Habibganj railway station when the four men abducted the woman while she was returning home after attending a coaching class in Maharana Pratap Nagar, a GRP officer said.
He said the accused allegedly took the woman under a culvert near the railway tracks and took turns to rape her before fleeing.
On the basis of the complaint lodged by the woman, a case was registered at the GRP Police Station (Habibganj Railway Station) as the area where the crime occurred falls under their jurisdiction.
The accused are identified as Golu Bihari, Amar Chhantu, Rajesh, and Ramesh. “They have been booked under sections 376 D (gangrape) and 34 (acts done by several persons in furtherance of common intention),” the officer said, adding that further investigation is on.
