Haryana gang-rape victim gang-raped again by same accused on bail
Chandigarh, July 18 (IANS) A college student, who was gang-raped three years ago by five men in Bhiwani district, has been allegedly gang-raped again by the same men in Haryana’s Rohtak district, the victim and her family has alleged.
The brother of the victim alleged that his sister was abducted from outside her college in Rohtak town, 75 km from New Delhi, on July 13 by the accused after being dragged into a car. She was driven to an isolated spot and gang-raped again.
The 20-year-old victim has been admitted to the Post Graduate Institute of Medical Sciences (PGIMS) in Rohtak in a serious condition following the second incident of gang-rape with her, police sources said on Monday.
“I had come out of college. There were the same five boys in a car. I got scared on seeing them. They dragged me into the car and tried to strangulate me. They gang-raped me and threw me out of the car,” the victim said.
Her brother alleged that the accused also tried to kill his sister. The accused dumped the victim near Sukhpura Chowk power house.
“The accused, who had gang-raped her in Bhiwani three years ago, had been putting pressure on us to withdraw the rape case and settle the matter. When we refused to accept their offer of Rs 50 lakh, they threatened my father and other family members. They abducted my sister from outside her college on July 13 and gang-raped her again to teach her a lesson for not withdrawing the case,” the victim’s brother said.
He said that their family was under constant threat from the accused, who were from well-placed families.
The family had relocated from Bhiwani to Rohtak after the first gang-rape incident, the victim’s brother said.
The accused, who had been arrested earlier following the gang-rape in 2013, were later released on bail by a court in Bhiwani recently.
