Woman stripped in public

Accused behind bars; Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar orders probe

Acting on the orders of the top brass, the police on Friday sent the accused Rakesh Singh to jail. Owner of the Hotel Bob (where the ugly incident took place) Ashok Kumar and his manager Shailendra too have been apprehended and put behind bars.

It may be mentioned here that Rakesh had brought the girl from Jasidih in Jharkhand three days back on the pretext of giving her a job. But the girl, supposedly of shady character, landed up at a flesh trade centre.

Brawl

It was on Thursday evening that a brawl took place between the girl and Rakesh over the payment received from a ‘customer’. While the girl wanted Rs 4000 as her ‘earning’, she was given only Rs 1000. Eventually, she took the mobile of Rakesh and left the hotel. It was on the streets of Exhibition Road where she was caught by Rakesh and his goons, roughed up mercilessly and stripped while searching mobile. While onlookers beat both Rakesh and the girl, the police later took them under custody.

Shocked over the incident which brought disrepute to the State, Nitish asked the DGP DN Gautam to inquire into the shameful incident and report to him immediately.

The news spread like wild fire after the electronic media telecast it repeatedly.

On Friday, the Opposition members comprising the RJD, LJP and Congress legislators raised the issue and punctured the claim of Nitish’s ‘good governance’ in the House.

Inspector General (Patna) Sunil Kumar has been entrusted the task of conducting inquiry into the case.
