A resident of Narela, Delhi on Sunday lodged a complaint with the Haryana police in Sonepat alleging gangrape by her brothers-in-law and their five accomplices. The crime, according to the complainant, took place on the National Highway-1 near Murthal on the night intervening February 22-23. Based on her complaint, the Sonepat police registered an FIR on charges of gangrape against seven persons, including her two brothers-in-law. No arrests were made yet.

While talking to The Indian Express, Abhishek Garg, Superintendent of Police, Sonepat, said, “A woman approached us today and narrated the incident. She has levelled allegations of rape on certain persons, including two of her brothers-in-law. We have registered a case and investigations are on. So far no body has been arrested since we are verifying the allegations”.

Sources disclosed that the same complainant, in 1999, had first lodged a case against a person in New Delhi and levelled rape allegations. The case went on for trial during which she turned hostile and the accused was acquitted. A few years later, she again filed a case against a person in Delhi and levelled charges of molestation. However, during inquiry, the police found the complaint false and cancelled the case.

Dr. Rajshree Singh, DIG Haryana Police, who is heading the SIT constituted by the Haryana government to go into alleged incidents of rape and molestation of several women during the Jat agitation, said, “The woman had approached us and narrated the incident that took place on the night intervening February 22-23. We have registered a case. Investigations are on.”

“In her complaint, she mentioned that she and her minor daughter were travelling in a bus from Haridwar to New Delhi on the night of February 22-23. She added that when the bus reached Panipat, it developed a snag and they got off. She and her daughter got into a private maxi-van (a passenger vehicle). There were other people also in the van. When they reached near Murthal, the van was stopped by 6-7 youngsters, who broke the windowpanes of the vehicle and pulled her and her daughter out. She added that her brothers-in-law were also among those 6-7 persons. She alleged that they dragged her to nearby fields, where one of them raped her. She added that the accused even molested her daughter. We have registered a case and the investigations are on,” said DSP Surinder Kaur.

Investigating police officials also disclosed that the complainant also has some ongoing property dispute with her in-laws. “Whether her complaint has any relation with that dispute is yet to be ascertained”, a senior Haryana police officer said.

                      Shame on police to manite the story. Blame also lye to the people who calls for these wild cat strikes, they give free licence to looters rapist. They should think twice before they call these strikes and law abiding citizens should think twice before joining these wild cat strikes, one day it will be their daughter sister. There is a serious mental problem with the some people in this country.

                            This is just another plot by RSS to create divide between the people to get the votes. It is strange that all violence happened where the non jat MLA was from BJP. There was no violence in the consuency of Jat MLAs of BJP. The criminals does not have any cast. on the other side, first the non jats instigate the jats and when they got disproportionate response they crying foul. Truth is it was abject failure of government machinery for 10 days which is hard to digest. Now the govt and this brahmaincal media pinning the blame on jats protestor. We are very proud of our jat brothers who lost their life in this struggle for their right.

                              These gang rapists should have been eliminated like the terrorists upon a direct order to the army......unfortunately, our democracy is in evolution where the rule of law does not prevail, and we will see these barbaric rapes again and again for the next few generations without such drastic actions. Potion explosion, male female ratio imbalance, lack of education and jobs for mes and reservations on top of that, all of these factors virtually ensure high level of crimes against women in times to come.

                                Wait a minute, We are talking about eh gangrape (alleged) of nearly 10 women, 50 if reports are to be believed, Now this lady gets of a bus somewhere, gets into a Van and travels to Delhi, The some persons, strangely Brother-in-laws and another five knows all this en-route, Stops the van and rape.....What the ...., I'am starting to feel that the w issue is becoming a wild goose chase. For once it makes better sense to believe the police. Even though yesterday I was feeling a little angry about police for their non-commital stand. This story right now does not add up, considering the situation. And what happened to the other people in the Van?.

                                      This all seems very fabricated. If these women were raped, why has no one come forward for so long. However, if really true, justice should be served immediately

                                        If victims are not coming forward,then there will be atleast one man who is not relative to alleged raped women can go to news paper anonymously.The w story is based upon here and say.Also if you read the local newspaper,the equal onus of burning is on non jats.Even one Rohtak BJP MLA 's PSO was involved in looting.The administration failure with running of PoliceIG on the fateful day gave the looters an easy p.All the SCs were also being caught with bed shoes and clothes.The MLK govt proved totally incompetent and politicians made this a castism war with their provoking statements.

                                          That is also true but he is talking about this case. Pressutes can also mislead and women today also can make false claims.I hv seen in rohtak sisters case.
