The nation is still carrying an unwanted record which we people are aware of. With so many records to boast about India’s development, their failure to stop rape cases is haunting like hell. Rape is the fourth most common crime in India. The level of rape cases in our nation rose alarmingly. It is learnt that most of the rape cases were committed by someone known to the victim.
Humans can’t get any worse than this. In a disastrous incident that is hard to imagine, a 16-year-old girl was abducted, forced to drink alcohol and was raped by two men in Greater Noida on Wednesday, as confirmed by the police.
“She had gone for sewing classes near her home and the two accused came on a motorcycle and kidnapped her. They also forced her to have alcohol and beat her up when she resisted,” said SS Bhati, a police official.
“The duo raped her and the next morning dumped her outside her house in Dastampur village,” he said directing the complaint made by her father.
The shocking incident happened when the girl who is a resident of Gautam Buddh Nagar district’s Dastampur village, near Jewar, was coming home on August 24, the police said.
Based on the complaint, which was filed on Wednesday, an FIR was registered against the accused for rape, Bhati said.
On claims that the police delayed lodging the complaint about the case, the SHO said the complaint was filed on Wednesday and not earlier.
As far as the Circle Officer of Greater Noida Piyush Kumar Singh is concerned, the charges under the Prevention of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act and the Scheduled Castes and Tribes (Prevention of Atrocities) Act, 1989 have also been filed against the two wrongdoers.
The police have started a serious investigation into the incident and the two accused will be arrested and put behind the bars soon, the circle officer said.
