Jammu and Kashmir was recently in news after two Indian soldiers were mutilated along the LoC. And it is in news once again with yet another shocker. A 25-year-old woman was arrested in a theft case, and alleged something that was nothing less than a nightmare. The woman, who was working as a domestic help, was arrested on the charges of stealing gold from her employer’s house in Domana area.
Soon after she got bail from the court, she claimed that she was forcibly stripped and sexually assaulted at the police station. She alleged that a beer bottle and chilli powder was inserted in her private parts in Police Station Kanachak in the outskirts of Jammu. Shocked?
She said –
‘They broke my arms and legs on the fourth day, stripped me, put chilli powder and inserted a beer bottle into my private parts.’
Well, she accused Station House Officer and a woman constable. She further alleged that she was tortured for four days before she was sent to Woman Police Station. The woman said that her mother-in-law and husband were also beaten up by the police.
However, the police has denied the allegations. The advocate representing the woman said that police is manipulating the medical report to save the accused.
A court has directed the Inspector General of Police to constitute a three-member panel and submit the report within 15 days.
