One of the four women, who were allegedly gangraped on the Jewar-Bulandshahr road off the Yamuna Expressway, has accused the police of trying to hush up the case and making false statements against the victims. District Magistrtae B N Singh, SSP Love Kumar and Chief Medical Officer Dr Anurag Bhargava had in a joint press conference on Friday ruled out allegations of rape, citing preliminary medical examination reports.

The women yesterday recorded their statement before the additional chief judicial magistrate. Sources said the four in their statements reiterated that they were raped. The shocking incident had taken place on Thursday night when eight persons of a family were travelling to Bulandshahr to meet a relative at a hospital.

The women had alleged that a group of five criminals raped them at gunpoint in a field off the Yamuna Expressway and one of the four men travelling with them was shot dead when he objected to the sexual assault. “It is disgusting that the police are trying to hush up the case and making false statements against us instead of arresting the culprits,” one of the women said.

“What was the need for making the initial medical report public? Why would we lie? The police are insensitive,” she said.

Union minister and Gautam Budh Nagar MP Mahesh Sharma yesterday visited the victims at their residence and assured them help. A three-member National Commission for Women team visited the area where the incident took place and also met the victims.

The team met the district magistrate, the SSP and the CMO. They enquired about the police probe and steps being taken by the administration to help the victims.

        It is unfortunate that the CDMO has stated in his report that their was no evidence of rape .The matter should be referred to a team of specialists for final opinion the mean time the administration should do everything possible to uage the fee of the victims.

How could be police so insensitive to make a public statement on this ,adding insult to injured.The new CM should take this matter seriously and bring out the truth.

              Useless BJP Government in Power and most Corrupt Police. It looks like this crime has political connection or Police which failed now want to save those involved in such heinous crime. Don't know why police deliberately reach the crime scene so late. In crimes where there is RSS, BJP, Gau Rakshaks, HYV etc are involved police is scared to take action and instead tries to demonise the victims with lies and deception.

                  Police made the perverted decision to make the medical reports public proving that they are themselves part of the problem of ual violence in the country.
