In a horrific incident, a 22-year-old woman was allegedly gang-raped by three men in Gurgaon after throwing her nine-month old daughter off the autorickshaw in which she was travelling, leading to the death of her child.
According to the woman’s complaint, the driver of the autorickshaw in which she was travelling from her home to her parent’s house in Khandsa village, Gurgaon, along with two other men, started molesting her as soon as she sat in the auto.
When the woman started shouting, the infant began crying. The three men threw the girl child out of the autorickshaw and took turns to rape her.
Gurgaon District Commissioner of Police (DCP), South, Ashok Bakshi told HT that the woman initially filed an FIR against three men for the death of the nine-month-old daughter.
“An FIR under section 304 (murder) was filed on May 30. The woman filed the FIR at IMT, Manesar police station.”
Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP), Manesar told HT that the woman was afraid that her husband might leave her if he came to know about the gang rape. Owing to this, she didn’t complain of rape initially.
However, she later mustered courage and told the ordeal to the police.
A medical examination was conducted on June 3 while the police is now waiting for the forensic science laboratory (FSL) report.
It is pertinent to mention here that FSL report is required for proving in the court that rape had happened.
The police is now investigating the matter.
Haryana is infamous for lack of women’s safety. Only last month, two incidents of rape, one in Yamunagar and the other one in Ambala, shook the state.
