Hours after allegedly raping a woman in Delhi, Shiv Kumar Yadav returned to his wife in Mathura and told her that he had a “fight with customers” in his taxi.

Speaking to Newsline at her one-room house in Mathura, in the presence of her lawyers, Munni Yadav said she found her husband “troubled” when he returned. “He seemed upset,” she said. However, she said, she had no inkling of what was to be in the news the next day.

She recalled Yadav having came home around 2.30 pm. “I was in the kitchen cooking for my children. He walked in and looked very upset. He asked me if there was something to eat. He said he had been assaulted.”

Following this conversation, Munni said, Yadav fell asleep. However, three hours later, he woke up and told her he had to attend to a customer’s call and left. “I didn’t hear from him after that. Then eight personnel from Delhi Police turned up at my house, asking me where my husband was.”

Munni claimed police assaulted her and harassed her for Yadav’s whereabouts. “I didn’t know what they were talking about. They refused to tell me anything and kept slapping me and screaming at me. My neighbours were asked to prepare food and tea for them while they rested in my room. All the while my daughters and I were made to sit outside in the cold. My neighbours helped us and gave us shelter.”

A neighbour backed her version of events: “I heard a lot of noise and came out to see men in civil clothes standing outside. They ordered us to prepare food for them. They kept slapping Munni. They then asked me to go all the way to the railway tracks behind our premises and look for Shiv Kumar. At night, they made us parade around at the railway tracks till they left. The next evening, police told us he had been arrested.”

Munni said she does not believe Yadav has committed the rape. “If he had indeed committed a crime, why would he come back to our house? He would have been on the run. Police say he used the girl’s phone and gave himself a missed call. He would have destroyed his phone and hers if he had committed a crime.”

“It was my husband’s dream to own a car. My father-in-law gave us some money and on May 30, he purchased the Swift Dzire,” she said.

          I find the police misbehaviour and brutality very disturbing. Media ought to speak up such misuse of power.

            Jokes Apart ! Why do the cops har her physically and mentally ,What mistake have she done ? Are the cops so dumb to do that rather than using scientific methods to question the whereabouts of the Suspect .Cops asked the neighbors to cook for them in the middle of the night ?? and made these ladies walk around in the railway tracks ?? This is another kind of Abuse .What cops are they ? Cops should also be booked !
