ALWAR: Rajasthan saw three more cases of sexual assaults including one in Alwar where the angry family members of a minor victim lynched a suspect involved in the heinous crime. In Alwar, the 15-year-old girl was allegedly gangraped by three minors on May 14 who had targeted her at a village where she had reached to attend a relative’s marriage.
“While one of the accused managed to flee, the other two were caught by the victims’ family members and thrashed the next morning... Few hours later, one of them was found dead on the roadside,” SP Paris Anil Deshmukh said. Both sides have lodged counter FIRs — for rape and murder—against each other. The Superintendent of Police said both the accused were detained on Friday and will be sent to juvenile home.
Meanwhile, the police filed a charge sheet on Saturday against the accused in the Alwar gangrape case in a court, Additional Superintendent of Police Chiranjee Lal said. Five accused had allegedly gangraped a woman in front of her husband when she was going with him on a motorcycle on Thanagaji-Alwar road on April 26. Another accused had shot a video clip of the crime and circulated it on social media.
At Churu’s Bhanipura area, a six-year-old girl was allegedly raped by her relative. “The girl had gone to fetch water when the 14-year old accused took her to an isolated place and committed the crime on Friday. He has been detained,” the local SHO said. The third atrocity was reported from Dholpur. With agency inputs
