Reasi, Jammu and Kashmir (September 15, 2013): On September 14, 2013 – a day after a Delhi fast-track court announced death sentenced to the four convicts in the Delhi gang rape and murder case, two Jammu and Kashmir cops were reportedly arrested for abducting and raping a minor girl in Reasi, 77 kms from Jammu, the winter capital of the state.
The girl was reportedly abducted from Talwara Migrant camp in Reasi on September 12, 2013 evening by Assistant Sub Inspector Mahesh Mehta, Satvir Singh, personal assistant to Reasi SSP, and Special Police Officer (SPO) Karnail Singh. The girl was reportedly gang-raped by trio.
The incident has sparked protests in Talwara and neighbouring areas. The protesters blocked the main road at Baradari bridge for more than two hours demanding registration of an FIR against all the three accused police officials.
Following the protests, police registered an FIR No. 122 under section 366/34 and added section 376 CrPC after the medical examination of the rape survivor was done. The survivor’s statement was recorded under section 164 before chief judicial magistrate Reasi, police sources said. The district administration and police also arrested ASI Mahesh Mehta and SPO Karnail Singh. PA to SSP Satvir Singh, however, managed to evade his arrest.
Deputy inspector general (DIG) of police Udhampur-Reasi range, Gareeb Dass reportedly told the Times of India (TOI) that the case was being investigated and the police were on a hunt to find and arrest the PA to SSP Reasi.
