Rewari (Haryana): In a strong appeal for justice to the victim who was abducted, drugged and later gang-raped while she was on her way to a coaching center, the mother of the CBSE board exam topper in Haryana on Friday urged Prime Minister Narendra Modi to take immediate action against the culprits.
“Prime Minister Modi says ‘Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao', but how? Please help my daughter get justice. My daughter was honored on Republic Day after she topped Haryana. Now, what should we do? Why is he (Prime Minister Modi) not listening to us today? Where is he?", the victim’s mother is quoted as saying by ANI.
"The accused are threatening my daughter and saying that they will kill her if we will tell this to anybody. The village is not speaking anything in front of these goons", she added.
"Police are also making us go from pillar to post, while the accused are roaming freely. Both the police and the government are not listening to us. It’s been 15-16 hours now, but nothing has been done yet,” she said.
The 19-year-old CBSE board exam topper from the Kosli area in BJP-ruled Haryana’s Rewari district was allegedly kidnapped and gang-raped after being drugged on Wednesday.
The victim, who was felicitated by President Ram Nath Kovind after she topped the CBSE board exam in the state, was going to her coaching center in Mahendragarh in the morning when two people came to meet her at a bus stand and later gave her water to drink, news agency ANI reported.
Soon after, the girl lost consciousness, according to an FIR registered at Kanina police station.
Three people – Pankaj, Manish, and Nishu – have been named as the accused in the FIR.
The girl alleged that Pankaj and Manish drugged her and later took her near a well in a car where she recognized Nishu on gaining consciousness. However, the victim was again drugged and gang-raped, the FIR stated.
It added that the accused later called the victim’s family and informed them to take her from the bus stand in Kanina.
“The girl lives in Rewari district and the incident took place in adjoining Narnaul (Mahendragarh district). Later in the night, the police registered a zero FIR. Police are taking relevant efforts to arrest the three people accused. I hope that they will be in police custody soon,” AS Chawla, ADGP Operations, Haryana, told ANI.
