30-year-old woman accuses police constable of rape

Jamshedpur : In a shocking incident a 30-year-old woman who is a resident of Birsanagar Zone No 6 has accused a police constable of raping her in the wee hours of Saturday at an isolated area near a flat in Golmuri.

A mother of two children had alleged before the city SP, Chandan Jha that she was raped by the policeman and other person after a police party had come to her place for searching for her brother who is accused in some criminal case.

The alleged rape victim has already undergone an examination by a three member medical board. The medical examination report will come on Monday.

Superintendent of MGM Medical College and Hospital, R Y Chowdhury said that he had set up a three-member medical board immediately the woman had referred to the medical college hospital for a medical examination for rape confirmation.

Meanwhile, officer-in-charge, Birsanagar nagar police station, Bir Singh Munda said that a police party led by assistant sub-inspector Narayan Singh had gone to raid the house of a 25-year-old youth against whom two chain-snatching cases were pending with the Telco police station.

An allegation of gang rape has already been made and a case registered with the Mahila Thana. The officer-in-charge, when queried, said that other accused Krishna Barik had two months ago helped a woman from being thrashed by the family members of the alleged rape victim.

Cases of rape of minors and molestation of women are on the rise in the steel city. Several cases of heinous crime have been reported from fringe areas.

Even cases relating to cheating minor girls in the guise of love and marriage too have gone up. Experts blame it on inactive police administration which is said to be indifferent to control criminal activities and influx of criminals from outside.

“The situation has fast changed in our city. Women are not feeling safe now. Steps need to be taken to ensure their protection.

I am of the opinion that failure of police in arresting rape accused and people’s reluctance to file FIR regarding rape are some of the factors behind rising molestation cases”, Alpna Chakravarty says, an activist working for NGO.

“We need to hold discussions in high schools and colleges, in forums where films are screened and discussed. We need to have women police arrest men who harass women,” said the social worker.

Another senior police officer said that crime can not be controlled till there is a change in human consciousness. However, police are trying to give exemplary punishment to criminals.
