Police have confirmed the four men arrested from Farrukhabad in March were involved in the robbery and rape of three women at a colony of brick kiln workers in Rabupura on the intervening night of November 1 and 2, 2016.
The four men were already in jail and were taken on police remand two days ago to complete the investigations into the case. Police said they have been sent to jail again after their remand ended.
Rajveer Singh Chauhan, station house officer, Rabupura police station, said, “We sought their remand for two days to complete our investigations. The four accused had already confessed to having committed the crime. We had collected some evidence and the disclosures the accused made during the police custody confirmed the sequence of events that took place on the night of the alleged rape and robbery.”
Chauhan said the four were sent to jail on Monday evening and the remand report will be submitted to the court.
Meanwhile, Jewar MLA Dhirendra Singh said during the two days, the women were also asked to identify the faces of the four men. “I visited the women victims and they told me they did not identify the faces of the four men who were shown to them in custody. The women claimed they still remember the faces of those involved in the crime,” Singh said.
But the police insisted that the men arrested were the real culprits.
On the intervening night of November 1 and 2, six armed men allegedly struck an isolated colony of workers of a brick kiln adjacent to the Yamuna Expressway near Jewar. They allegedly separated the men and the boys and tied up them up before raping the women.
The attackers spent nearly two hours at the site before fleeing. A 20-year-old widow was among the three women who were raped.
A case was registered only after the intervention of locals and farmers who staged a protest at Rabupura police station against the dacoity and gang-rape.
