Kanpur : On the charges of dereliction of duty in the alleged rape and
suicide case of a 17-year-old Dalit girl in Parauli village, Station
Officer Ghatampur Kallu Ram Dohrey and Constable Virendra Singh have
been relieved of their duties.
The family members of the deceased minor had alleged the SO and
Constable of favouring the alleged persons and not arresting them.
Taking a serious note of the complaint, DIG Kanpur, Prem Prakash
relieved Dohrey and Singh off their duties and attached them to police
line on late Friday night. The DIG has also formed a team to probe
into the role of Ghatampur police in the matter. District Magistrate
Mukesh Kumar Meshram has instructed Joint Magistrate Muttu Swami to
prepare a report on the role of Station Officer and Constable in the
case. However, even a day after the suicide, no arrest has yet been
made by Ghatampur police.

A Class XI student of Pandit Deen Beni Singh Bharat Inter College of
Bheetargaon block was allegedly kidnapped and raped by village youth
identified as Sunil Singh Bhadoria on Thursday morning. Her father
Ashok Kumar claimed that he made several efforts to convince SO Kallu
Ram Dohrey to register his case, but the police official denied
lodging the complaint. Meanwhile, on Friday morning, the minor girl
set herself on fire at her Parauli village residence. Before the
family members could rush to her rescue, the minor died on the spot.
The villagers in a large number held a protest in the village and
demanded the arrest of the accused persons. Keeping in mind the
large-scale protest, the case was registered on Friday afternoon.

DIG Prem Prakash said: "Strict departmental action would be initiated
against the Station Officer and the Constable if they are found guilty
of having favoured the accused persons." The DIG has instructed ASP
Kanpur Rural area Lal Bahadur to set up an inquiry in the role of
Dohrey and Singh in the matter. "Meanwhile, police teams have been
formed to arrest the accused persons at the earliest," he added. The
senior police official pointed out that on the complaint made by Ashok
Kumar, a case under the charges of kidnapping, rape, provocation for
suicide and SC/ST Act has been registered against Sunil Singh
Bhadoria, his father Shivveer and his mother.

Meanwhile, the girl's father said his daughter would not have died if
Ghatampur police had supported them. Ashok Kumar said: "Both Sunil and
his father Shivveer repeatedly threatened us on Thursday night and
Friday morning and the entire family was scared." He was disappointed
that a day after the suicide, police team has failed to make any
arrest. Kumar said: "On Thursday morning, Sunil kidnapped my daughter
from village outskirts and raped her in the farming fields." Kumar
also accused Sunil's family members of supporting him in the crime.

DM Mukesh Kumar Meshram said the family members have leveled serious
allegations against the SO and the Constable. "I have asked district
officials to present their report on the issue at the earliest," he

Meanwhile, the first postmortem report could not confirm the rape
charges, following which a slide of genital organs of the minor has
been prepared. IG, Kanpur Range, G L Meena, said the slide of genital
organs of the minor has been prepared and will soon be sent for the
lab test.
