Haryana gang rape: the woman's parents claim that the police did not act on their complaint
A 19-year-old student congratulated by the president after completing the CBSE boarding exam was abducted and raped by a group of men in a Haryana district on Wednesday. The woman was left unconscious at a bus stop in the neighborhood.
The sophomore was on his way to a coaching center when three men reportedly kidnapped and dragged her to a field where they raped her. A few other men who were already on the field also raped her, the police said. The woman said that all the men were from her village.
Her parents have claimed that the police refused to file their complaint and submit a First Information Report or FIR. They said they ran from one police station to another, hoping to file a complaint after the suspect threatened not to pursue the matter.
However, a policeman at Rewari said that a "zero FIR" was filed against the accused on the basis of the woman's complaint and the police station involved is investigating the case. A zero FIR is filed in a police station under whose jurisdiction a crime has not occurred, but from which the case can be transferred to the relevant police station.
