Kushinagar(UP), 24 September
In a brazen display of insensitivity, a police officer allegedly asked a 16-year-old rape-victim to strip before him to confirm the incident, prompting district police to order an inquiry.
The minor girl, who was allegedly raped by a 19-year-old youth in Nebua Naurangia area on 21 September, approached area Station House Officer (SHO), Mr Jasraj Yadav to file a complaint, sources said. However, the SHO of Nebua, instead of filing the FIR, asked the girl to strip before him so that he could confirm the incident. According to the sources, the minor left the police station in a haste after the officer's brazen demand.
Later, the victim approached senior police officers after which her medical examination was conducted on 22 September.  The FIR was registered yesterday, they said.
