Bulandshahr rape case: How can a minor survivor be kept in jail, SC asks Uttar Pradesh govt

New Delhi: Taking suo motu cognisance of the Bulandshahr minor rape case, the Supreme Court on Wednesday asked the Uttar Pradesh government to explain why a minor rape victim was locked up in the jail when she approached the police to file a complaint. The apex court has asked the state government to submit its reply by Monday.

The 10-year-old girl and her mother were put behind the bars when they reached a police station in Bulandshahr to file an FIR. All that the 10-year-old wanted was justice when she went to the police to report being raped. But she had to face police brutality.

"They slapped me," she said. She was illegally locked up in jail for more than 15 hours.

The two women constables who were responsible have been suspended, with the SSP of the town accepting it was a blunder. SSP Gulab Singh said, "The policewomen made a mistake. They should not have put the minor in jail. They were summoned and then suspended. Both were constables in office for less than a year. They must undergo training again."

But Gulab Singh says this was a stray incident and not reflective of the attitude of the entire police force. Meanwhile, the accused was arrested. "I caught the girl stealing. I told her not to steal and now they have filed a complaint against me," the accused said.

But the mother of the survivor who said she is being threatened is afraid for the well being of her family. She said, "They told me that once they get out, they will kill me. What can I do now?"

The two police constables stationed outside the house of the rape survivor are a temporary source of security, but this won't last forever. All they hope for is that the fear of law proves to be stronger than the open threats from the family of the accused.
