Jharkhand Shocker! Out With Friend, Woman Techie Gang-Raped By Around 10 Men
In a shocking incident, a 26-year-old software engineer was allegedly raped by around 10 men in Jharkhand’s West Singhbhum district.
The woman, who works at a well-known IT company, was on work from home.
On Thursday evening, she was out with her boyfriend on a two-wheeler when the incident took place near the old aerodrome in Chaibasa.
Friend beaten up, woman gang-raped
According to the police, a group of eight to ten men stopped the couple, beat the boyfriend up and allegedly raped the woman after taking her to a secluded spot.
After raping her, the accused left her at the spot and fled. They also took away her wallet and mobile phone.
The woman somehow managed to reach home and tell her family about the incident, after which they filed a police complaint.
Her medical check-up was conducted at the Sadar Hospital.
The Police Form STI
Superintendent of Police Ashutosh Shekhar said that a case was registered at the Muffasil police station and an investigation was underway to identify those behind the incident.
A special investigation team (SIT) has been formed to arrest the accused.
“We have formed an SIT led by Sadar sub divisional police officer. We have some leads and we are working on it. A few people have also been questioned,” Shekhar said.
Twelve people were detained for interrogation in connection with the incident, Sub-Divisional Police Officer (Sadar) Dilip Khalko said.
Politics over Chaibasa gangrape
The shocking crime has also taken a political turn, with the BJP demanding the resignation of Chief Minister Hemant Soren.
Soren’s government is insensitive towards the incidents of rape that have happened in the state over the last three years, former chief minister Raghubar Das of the BJP told PTI.
He claimed that a sense of insecurity is prevailing among the people of the state as law and order has completely broken down.
“Soren, who is also facing corruption charges with uncertainty looming large over his tenure, should immediately resign on moral ground as Jharkhand in becoming the rape capital,” he added.
The ruling JMM said that those accused of the gang rape in Chaibasa will not be spared, and police are working to ensure stringent punishment against them.
“The state government has been taking prompt action in such cases and will do it in the Chaibasa incident as well,” JMM spokesperson Mohan Karmakar said, rejecting the BJP’s allegations as an attempt to tarnish Soren’s image.
The BJP is nervous over the overwhelming support the Soren government is getting for its welfare programmes, he claimed.
“The government is making all possible efforts to further strengthen the police department,” Karmakar said.
