Chhattisgarh cops accused of raping minor


A first information report (FIR) against the policemen was filed late on Thursday, police said, adding that the small town in Raigarh district, about 280 km from here, was tense. The girls, who had been quiet since November 9 when the incident took place, mustered up the courage to speak out and were escorted by an angry mob when they went to file the complaint.

The girls were allegedly raped inside a house in the police station complex on the night of November 9 but were coerced into silence by threats of dire consequences if they spoke out, an official said.

“It’s a very shameful incident. The guilty policemen will not be spared. I am rushing to Dharmjaigarh town to seek the help of the girls to identify the policemen who brought a slur on the police force,” Rahul Sharma, superintendent of police, Raigarh, said.
