Days after allegations of rape and molestation by Jat quota agitators near Haryana’s Murthal, a woman on Sunday registered a case of gang rape against seven people, including her brother-in-law, in connection with the incident.
She said the victim had alleged she was raped on the intervening night of February 22-23 and the perpetrators included her brother-in-law. The complainant said she knew all of them.
The officer said the victim was not sure about the exact scene of the crime but claimed she was raped in a building near Murthal when she was on way to Narela in Delhi from Haridwar on a van. The woman, however, said her 15-year-old daughter who was accompanying her, was not raped but her clothes were torn.
The DIG said the woman had called her up on Saturday and her statement was recorded a day later.
Earlier, some locals, including truck drivers, had claimed they had seen women being dragged to the fields by the protesters. TV channels showed footage of garments worn by women strewn in some places
Three truck drivers had denied having witnessed any incident of sexual assault or rape even as Chief Minister M L Khattar said the guilty shall not go unpunished.
