A gangrape survivor from Ayodhya has alleged that she was beaten up by two woman constables when she went to the police station to file a complaint of the assault.
The survivor went to the police station on November 18 to record her statement.
“Two women police constables pressured me to change my statement even though I was speaking the truth. They hit me. They kicked me and even used their belts to beat me. I was asked to take off my clothes, but I did not,” the Dalit woman who was gang-raped on November 16, was quoted as saying by The Week.
The police have registered a report and arrested the two men named by the survivor. Based on her complaint, the two women constables accused of beating her up, have been suspended from duty and an inquiry is underway.
“We have provided adequate security to the victim. The police will extend all possible help in the matter,” Shailendra Kumar Singh, SP (Rural) said.
Reports suggest the rape took place on November 16 during daytime when the survivor had gone to the fields to relieve herself. She alleged that one Vishal crept up behind her and grabbed her by the face. When she fell on the ground, she saw another man. They both then proceeded to rape her.
When she managed to reach home after a while, she narrated the ordeal to her family and later went to file a police complaint.
