A 57-year-old man died reportedly died after he learnt that his minor daughter was “molested” by a police constable inside a police outpost in Rewati area of Ballia district in Uttar Pradesh. While the alleged incident took place on Friday, the constable, Dharam, was arrested and sent to jail by a local court on Saturday. Police said the postmortem had not been able to find the exact cause of death. “The viscera has been preserved for further examination,” Ballia Additional Superintendent of Police Vijay Pal Singh said.

Rewati police Station House Officer (SHO) Kunwar Prabhat Singh said the girl’s statement was recorded before the magistrate on Monday. The 15-year-old girl alleged that around 9 pm on Friday, when she was going to a field to answer nature’s call, Dharam caught hold of her near the Gopalpur police outpost. “She screamed for help… as locals rushed to the spot, the constable fled… The girl said that after she reached home, she told her father about the incident. Soon he fell unconscious. Neighbours rushed him to a nearby hospital where doctors declared him brought dead on arrival,” the SHO said.

The girl’s house is around 150 metres from the police outpost. The constable has been booked for molestation, creating circumstances leading to the death of the victim’s father and under POCSO Act.

    Hahahhaa. Why u people debate and waste ur time and energy when no one can do anything and we bark like dogs. In Pakistan they kicked the corrupted Nawaz shareef and threw him out as the people has power. Once they made musharraf leave the chair and run and he has to resign. We people can only bark here online. So enjoy the news and sleep. We can't do anything

        People did not kick out Nawaz Shareef. Army and Judiciary did. People had no role in it. People did not even select him allegedly.. he rigged the elections in his favor.

            A girl was traumatised. BAD. It was a police officer. VERY BAD. The father died. WORST. However, I guess even the wise and alert reporters of Indian Express got the news only after the person was produced in court. It is a social problem spread across country irrespective of cast creed region and religion. Making news sensational by giving such headlines for a few extra bucks! SHAME!

                  This is so shameful for us as a society . Will yogi govt wake up and take action against the rogue police force we have in this state. It is of utmost importance that we provide security to the citizens rather than just been worried about cows and temples. It is sheer failure of Modi too who has only faffed on every occasion in last few years. I am seeing no responsibility being fixed whether it was Gorakhpur or Muzzarnagar except we see few suspensions and transfers.. may be this what call Acche Din.. sick and shameful
