COP Raped 13-Year-Old Girl Who Went To Police Station To Report She Was Gang-Raped

A 13-year-old girl who went to
a police station to report that she had been gang-raped was then raped again by
the police officer she reported it to, authorities say.

The police officer, Station
House Officer Tilakdhari Saroj, was later arrested after being caught on the
run in the northern Indian state of Uttar Pradesh, where the crime is alleged
to have taken place.

The father of the girl alleged
to police that four men had lured his daughter away to the neighbouring state
of Madhya Pradesh on April 22 where they raped her over the space of four days.

The men then brought the girl
back to her village in the Lalitpur district of Uttar Pradesh (UP) before
fleeing.

According to the report filed
by the police, the girl went to the police station the following day to make a
statement accompanied by her aunt. Saroj then took the girl into a room and
raped her in front of the aunt, the report says.

Lalitpur district police chief
Nikhil Pathak told reporters that the NGO Childline brought the girl to his
office after she told them her story.

‘The SHO is suspended and he
is a named criminal so we have formed teams to arrest him,’ he said. ‘After I
was informed of it, I ensured that a case was filed.’

Saroj has been charged under
the stringent POCSO (Protection of Children from Sexual Offences) Act brought
in in 2012 which could see him face life in prison if convicted.

According to ANI
UP/Uttarakhand Saroj is quoted as saying: ‘Investigative agencies should be
called in to conduct the probe into the matter with utter honesty.

‘After the investigation, if
it’s proven I’m guilty then…I am 100% innocent.’

Pathak added that six people
were named in the case and four had been arrested, including Saroj, and all
officers serving in the police station have been removed.

The case has caused
predictable outrage in the state of Uttar Pradesh and across India itself.
