BADAUN: A 14-year-old girl was allegedly abducted and gang-raped by two constables inside a police station here in Uttar Pradesh, prompting the authorities to suspend the accused who are absconding.

Girl-Gang-raped.pngThe girl was allegedly abducted from her house on December 31 by constables Veer Pal Singh Yadav and Avnish Yadav, police said on Friday.

She was taken to Musajhag Police Station and allegedly raped there, Superintendent of Police (City) Lallan Singh said.

An FIR was registered after the victim's mother lodged a complaint against the two policemen, who are absconding.

The two cops have been suspended and police were trying to trace them.

The victim said the two constables allegedly assaulted her in a room in the police station.

"At 8 PM I informed my mother and went to the washroom. I saw a car there and two constables. They told me to come into the car and then took me away.

"They took me to a room in the police station where they assaulted me...They then dropped me to my village," the girl alleged.

Terming the rape of a minor in a police station as "unfortunate", Union Minister for Women and Child Development Maneka Gandhi said the rape crisis centre was a necessity for the district and it would be set up in the coming months.

"Instead of providing justice, the state police is itself breaking laws and committing atrocities on people and stern action needs to be taken against them", she told PTI.

Both Katra Saadatganj, where two cousin sisters were found hanging from a tree, and Musajhag Police Station where a minor was raped by two constables on December 31 fall in Aonla, the former Lok Sabha constituency of Maneka Gandhi.
