Adding to the spree of crimes against women in Haryana, a minor Dalit girl was allegedly kidnapped and raped in Rohtak, while a mentally challenged woman was sexually assaulted in Jind district.
Main accused in both the cases have been arrested.
A 15-year-old Dalit girl was allegedly lured by three women relatives in Kachchi Garhi Mohalla colony of Rohtak and then raped by a youth last evening, police said.
The girl was called out of her house by the accused women and was taken to an abandoned house in a car on the Hisar road on the outskirts of the village where she was raped.
Police have registered a case against five persons, including the three relatives of the victim and also arrested the key accused.
The latest incident occurred in Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda‘s home district Rohtak, where opposition BJP-Haryana Janhit Congress women leaders took out a rally and raised slogans against the Hooda regime for allegedly failing to protect the women of the state.
Yesterday, a mentally challenged woman was allegedly sexually assaulted by a man in Narwana area Jind.
Meanwhile, Haryana Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda today condemned the incidents and said “any culprit, whosoever was involved in such heinous crimes would not be spared at any cost.”
Hooda, who was speaking after presiding over the first meeting of State Police Board here today, said that not only the perception of the police should be good, but it should also be visible and easily accessible.
The chief minister said he had reviewed the working of the police organisation and also various steps taken by it to maintain law and order in the state.
“Detailed deliberations were also held regarding the strengthening and modernisation of the police force,” he said.
Haryana DGP, Ranjiv Singh Dalal said there should be a strength of 82,000 police personnel, but as against it there were only 56,000 at present.
The government has sanctioned to recruit 11,000 police personnel for which the process would soon commence, he said.
Dalal said it was necessary to further improve force multiplying efficiency, for which latest Close Circuit TV cameras were required in towns.
“For this Rs 200 crore have been sought to implement this five-year plan to install cameras as these would further improve efficiency of police and provide vital information as proof in case of any incident,” he said.
Dalal while referring to the recent rape incidents in the state, claimed that a team of National Commission for Women “has expressed satisfaction over the prompt action taken by the Haryana Police.”
He stressed the “need for parents to keep an eye on the activities of their children”.
The DGP said that parents “usually do not give proper attention to the boys and remain unaware of their activities. There had been cases where the young boys consumed liquor in the day and were involved in violent activities. The parents need to take strict note of the daily activities of their children,” he added.
In another incident, a spokesman of Jind district police today said they have arrested four youths, including Amarjeet alias Jeeta, while they were planning to carry out a loot.
Jeeta, during his interrogation, revealed that he was involved in a gangrape of a woman in Jind on August 18. Police had earlier registered a case against the accused in this incident, but the accused were absconding.
Earlier, a rape incident took place in Hisar on September 9, where a Dalit teenage girl was gangraped in Dabra village.
