SIT to probe woman constable's gang rape

Ranchi, Aug 26, 2013 (IANS):

A Special Investigation Team (SIT) will probe the gang rape of a woman constable in Jharkhand's Latehar district while she was travelling with the body of a relative, police sources said Monday.

The decision was taken after state police chief Rajiv Kumar visited Latehar Sunday. Kumar met the victim and inspected the place where she was gang raped.

The medical report confirmed that the woman constable was gang raped last week.

Police sources said that the SIT team will include a forensic expert.

The woman constable was travelling with the dead body of a relative to Garwah when she was gang raped in Latehar district last week.

Their vehicle was stopped near Jaldaga bridge of Latehar district, which is around  130 km from Ranchi.

The assailants allegedly gang raped her in the vehicle in which the body was kept.

The woman constable is a widow who got the job on compassionate ground after her husband was killed by Maoists.

Police have interrogated at least 10 people.

Jharkhand has witnessed rise in rape cases.

In Pakur district, six girls were gang raped at two places last month. A four-year-old girl was raped in Pakur last week. More than 700 rape cases have been registered in the state this year.
