Three constables, posted at Baghpat jail, have been accused of rape by a woman who had applied for the post of a constable in a jail.
The matter came to light when the victim met SSP Nitin Tiwari on Friday and lodged a complaint against the three constables and demanded stern action against them.
Confirming the complaint against the constables, SP (City), Akhilesh Narayan, told that the SSP has forwarded the complaint to the civil lines police station and the circle officer of civil lines is investigating the charges.
The victim has also sent similar complaints to Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath and DGP OP Singh. In her letter, the victim has said that a distant relative, who is a constable posted at Baghpat jail presently, suggested that her parents spend some money to ensure a job of constable for her. He also asked them to arrange for Rs 10 lakh for the job. However, her parents could manage Rs 8 lakh which they handed over to him. They paid the money to secure her future, she said.
He collected her educational certificates in January. He then told the family that the “jail minister” has instructed the DIG jail over the phone regarding her appointment and now she has to appear before the officer.
On January 26 he came to her house with two other constables and took her in a car without a number plate on the pretext of meeting the officer. They reportedly offered her a cold drink which was spiked with sedatives. When she lost consciousness they took her to a room where she was raped for three days. The three accused also made video clips of the act and asked her to stay quiet about the incident and threatened that if she tells anyone about the incident they will make the videos viral on social media.
Three days later, they left her in Meerut and warned her against going to the police in this regard. They said that if she opened her mouth they will get her killed as they have good connections with the jail inmates.
