The victim lodged a zero FIR with Police station, Rewari. The case was then transferred to Mahendergarh police who are now conducting probes into the sensitive case.

The victim’s family further alleges that the 19 YO victim was threatened to be killed if she reports the crime to the police. The prime accused belong to the same village as the victim. The victim is exceptionally good at academics and has been felicitated by the Honorable President of India for the same. She had topped her boards and was currently preparing for railway exams.

Sequence Of The Horrific Events

According to the police complaint, the victim was accosted by the three men, who are from the same village, who started asking her about the coaching center. As she talked to them, the men offered her water which she drank and fell unconscious, states the complaint.

The trio then took her in a car to an agriculture field in Kanina where they raped her, said the complaint, which also alleged that they called some other men who took turns to rape her.

Three people – Pankaj, Manish, and Nishu – have been named as the accused in the FIR, as per ANI report. Victim’s father who is a Kabaddi Coach told ThePrint that one of the accused is his student. Reportedly, the men have a number of cases registered against them. “One of them has a case for illegal possession of weapons. Others as well. So many complaints have been made against them but no action was ever taken,” alleged the father. “Only ten days ago, they were accused of assaulting another woman in the locality. But most don’t report it because they are scared of what society will say about them,” victim’s aunt said.

The Ongoing Investigation

The cops are finding it strange that the victim’s family is showing reluctance to get her statement recorded. Top police officials said to the media they also found it strange that one of the accused called up the father of the victim to inform him. The FIR says: “I was gangraped… and then I was dropped at the bus stand around 4.53pm… my father was informed by one of the accused… my mother and brother came to pick me up…

However, the victim’s father alleges that earlier the cops were taking the case casually.

As my daughter is still under shock, she is unable to give a statement… in front of a magistrate. Once her condition gets better, she will give her statement,” victim’s mother said to the media.

The victim’s primary medical reports didn’t indicate any internal or external injury informed Kanina DSP Vinod Kumar. “But we have sent swab reports for forensic examination which will be a crucial piece of evidence,” he said. Even after three days none of the accused have been arrested but the cops are hopeful of nabbing them soon and are also trying to find out about the drug used in the case. Cops added they will take the statement of the victim once her condition approves.

“The strictest punishment is what we want, we want them to be hanged for they have done to my little girl.” The traumatized father demands.

Dear readers, please note that zero FIR can be filed at any police station across the nation irrespective of whether the crime location falls under the jurisdiction of that police station or not. Later, the case is transferred to the concerned police station. Another inspiring and promising youth has been crushed by the heinous crime. Not even education is going to save or help our daughters anymore.
