BHOPAL: Two women, including a minor, were raped in Madhya Pradesh while its chief minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan proposed to bring in a legislation for awarding death penalty for raping minors.

In the first case, a 19-year-old woman was gang raped by four men near railway tracks in the capital city and in the second, a three-year-old girl was raped by her teenage relative in Betul district.

The 19-year-old B.Sc student is the daughter of a police constable mother and Railway Protection Force (RPF) personnel father. In fact, the cop couple’s daughter was allegedly raped just 100m from the RPF outpost when she was returning from her civil services coaching class.

After the incident, the girl’s mother, who caught one of the accused, had to allegedly coax the MP Nagar police for lodging a case. However, they declined saying that the matter pertained to the Habibganj PS.

The Habibganj Government Railway Police (GRP) finally lodged a case of gang rape and abduction against the gang members aged between 22 and 40 years.

Responding to the allegations of mishandling by the police, MP inspector general of police Makrand Deuskar told the New Indian Express, “The state police’s additional DG (ADG-Crime Against Women) Aruna Mohan Rao has directed DIG (Crime Against Women) Sudhir Kumar Lad to prove the allegations.”
The Bhopal South police and the Madhya Pradesh state women commission too have ordered a probe against the concerned staff.

In the second case, in Betul district, 200 km away from Bhopal, a three-year-old toddler was abducted and raped by her 15-year-old relative and was left in a nullah.

SP Betul district DR Teniwar said, “The toddler who was profusely bleeding from private parts was spotted by other girls a few hours later. She was first taken to Hamidia Hospital in Bhopal and she is now out of danger.”

SP Teniwal added, “We’ve arrested the 15-year-old accused and booked him for abduction and rape, besides under provisions of Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act (POCSP) 2012.”
