In a twist to the rape-cum-stripping case involving a 13-year-old girl in the district recently, the sister of the accused has lodged a counter FIR against the victim and her brother, alleging gangrape.

On April 4, a former sarpanch, his three sons, daughter (complainant in the cross case) and wife were booked for raping, stripping and beating up the Class 9 student by the Goindwal Sahib police. Only one son of the former sarpanch had been arrested since then. The victim was allegedly dragged clutching her from the hair and her nude video was made by the accused.

Former sarpanch’s 17-year-old daughter lodged a complaint that she was gangraped by victim’s brother and his friends. “On April 4, the victim and another girl took me to the house of one Baljit Singh alias Banta, where I was confined to a room. Accompanied by other accused, including brother of the victim, Banta and others raped me,” she stated in the complaint.

Acting on the complaint, police have registered a rape case against Baljit Singh, Parveen Kaur, stripping case victim’s brother, and two others.

After the stripping-cum-rape incidents was reported by the media, National Commission for Scheduled Castes vice-chairman Raj Kumar Verka has summoned Tarn Taran SSP Manmohan Sharma on April 15 in connection with the case. Verka has asked Sharma to appear before the commission with an action taken report. He also directed the police to add section under the SC/ST Act and recover the nude video allegedly made by the accused.
