A 65-year-old Dalit woman was allegedly raped in Nazirabad in rural part of Bhopal. The victim, a resident of Mangalgarh was alone in the house when the incident occurred.
The man Hari Narayan Gurjar who was charged with committing the crime also owns a piece of land near the woman’s land. The woman told the police that Hari Narayan, who was reportedly in an inebriated state, barged in and raped her. The victim's husband had gone out then.
After committing the crime, Hari threatened her of dire consequences if she would reveal the incident to anyone. He later escaped. As the woman was afraid of the threat, she could not report the incident to anyone.
However, she finally mustered courage and informed her husband about the incident and a case has been lodged at the Anusuchit Jan Jaati Kalyan (AJK) police station under section of 376 of IPC and an investigation is on.
