Minor's rape: DCP asked to act against cop

Outer Delhi deputy commissioner of police has been asked by a court to take action against a sub-inspector for his failure to probe a case of kidnapping and rape of a minor and not taking human trafficking aspect into consideration.

ASJ Kamini Lau ordered action against sub-inspector Satnarain saying he neither collected medical reports of 15-year-old victim nor placed it on record with the chargesheet.

The court also imposed a cost of Rs 2,000 on him. It gave its order in a rape and kidnapping case of a minor girl from Azamgarh in Uttar Pradesh, who had come here with her brother had a co-villager Chotey Lal for her medical treatment.

She had gone missing along with Lal and was later recovered from Ghaziabad from the custody of the key accused Lokender.

The girl told the court that Lal, in her brother’s absence had allured her and took her to Haridwar on November 20, 2011 on pretext of marrying her. She said he had taken her with the help of accused Meena Devi and Vijay. In Haridwar, Lal raped her and handed her over to Lokender, who forcibly married her after raping her and began living with her, she added.

The judge slammed the sub-inspector noting that Lal was not even made an accused in the case. The girl, who is now living with her family in Azamgarh, was recovered after she called her parents from her sister-in-law’s phone.

She told the court that several other girls were also confined with her in Haridwar. The court said the girl’s statement hints at human trafficking too.

The girl also told that she was “tutored” by the sub-inspector to say she had gone with Lokender on her own or else her brother will have to go to jail. “It is writ large that the investigating officer did not only try to divert the investigation but also failed to properly investigate the relevant aspects and apprehend the actual culprits who were a part of the conspiracy,” the court said.

Man gets life term

For strangling his wife, a man has been sentenced to life imprisonment by a Delhi court on deposition by his seven-year-old son who had seen him committing the ghastly crime.
District judge J R Aryan awarded life term to 35-year-old Rambir of Delhi for murdering his wife, who was found dead on the roof of a factory premises here in 2010.

“Testimony of child witness is found credible and acceptable. It is corroborated by the circumstance that the accused with his wife and this child witness had come to the workshop premises at Jafrabad, Delhi, on the night of August 31, 2010 and the victim was found murdered on its roof,” the court said.

The child said on the fateful day, Rambir had consumed liquor and when his mother asked for some money, he refused to give. His father was infuriated after his mother took out some money from his pocket and strangled her.
