Haryana: 8 men rape minor, circulate MMS; 1 held

Sep 23, 2012 01:02 PM IST India India

Hisar: A 16-year-old Dalit girl was allegedly gangraped by eight "upper caste" men on September 9 in the Dabra area of Hisar. The case came to light only 10 days later, on September 19, after the distraught minor broke down in front of her parents and narrated the incident.

To make matters worse, when the girl's father approached the police for help, they reportedly refused to file an FIR. The helpless father committed suicide the next day.

The police have now arrested one of the accused after the residents of the area refused to cremate the body until arrests were made.

The accused reportedly made an MMS clip of the incident and circulated it.

The girl's uncle told reporters, "The girl was scared and did not report the incident to her family. The accused had threatened to kill her if she approached the police. But when the MMS clip was circulated in the entire village and the people came to know, her father decided to report the matter to the police. However, I don't know what happened. He took the extreme step the next day."

Meanwhile, Hisar SP Satish Balan said, "A man committed suicide after her daughter was gangraped. But, no case was registered regarding her rape."
