Rewari Gang-Rape case : SIT formed, Main accused is a defence personnel

Published

Rewari, Sep 15: A special investigation team (SIT) has been formed under Nuh Superintendent of Police Naazneen Bhasin to investigate the alleged kidnap and gang-rape of a 19-year-old woman in Haryana’s Rewari while main accused is a serving defence personnel stationed in Rajasthan.

A nineteen-year-old CBSE topper from a village near Rewari in Haryana has alleged that she was kidnapped and gang-raped by 12 men.

As raids are being conducted to nab the three accused, Haryana DGP BS Sandhu said, “Main accused is a serving defence personnel stationed in Rajasthan. We are getting a warrant against him. The other two accused will be nabbed soon.”

As the accused continued to evade arrest two days after the incident, the Haryana Police has constituted a SIT  that would be headed by Mewat Superintendent of Police (SP) Naazneen Bhasin, the police said.

A 19-year-old woman was allegedly kidnapped and gang-raped by four to five people at Kanina in Haryana’s Mahendergarh district, the local police said.

Nuh Superintendent of Police Naazneen Bhasin visited the 19-year-old gangrape victim at a district hospital in Rewari.

“I have spoken to the victim today, her condition is stable. The main accused have been identified. We are investigating every aspect of the case, “Naazneen Bhasin said.

The victim’s parents have alleged that the local police refused to take their complaint and file a First Information Report or FIR. The parents claimed that they went to several police stations but everyone refused to take the complaint as accused threatened them.

Meanwhile, police said that a “zero FIR” has been launched based on their complaint and investigations are going on. Zero FIR is when an FIR is lodged with a police station that is remote to the area of crime and can be referred to the local police station later.

The police conducted raids to nab the three men accused of raping the girl two days after she was allegedly abducted from Kanina bus-stop while on her way to a coaching centre. She was drugged and driven around the three districts of Haryana before being gang-raped.

According to NDTV, three people kidnapped her in Kanina from where she was taken to a farm in Jhajjar district, where she was gang-raped by around 12 people. The report also claims that the accused belong to the same village as that of the survivor.

The National Commission for Women has also written to the Haryana DGP seeking updates on the case.
The survivor, who hails from Kosli in Rewari, had recently made national headlines due to her academic achievements in 2016.

Chief Minister of Haryana, Manohar Lal Khattar on Friday, 14 September said that the law would take its course, and whoever is found guilty would be punished.

The survivor, a second-year college student with a strong academic record, was kidnapped on her way to a coaching centre near her village in Rewari. She has reportedly informed the police that all the rapists were from her village.

The victim’s mother demanded justice for her daughter and questioned Prime Minister Narendra Modi citing the slogan – ‘Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao’. “My daughter was rewarded by Modi ji after she topped the CBSE board exams. Modi Ji says ‘Beti Padho, Beti Bacho’, but how? I want justice for my daughter. Police has taken no action yet,” she said.

COVAXIN Corona Covid vaccine

Hyderabad, January 16: Bharat Biotech, which has received a government purchase order for supply of 55 lakh doses of Covaxin, a COVID-19 vaccine, said the company would pay compensation to recipients in case of any serious adverse effects experienced after receiving the antidote.

In the consent form to be signed by the vaccine recipients, Bharat Biotech said: “In case of any adverse events or serious adverse events, you will be provided medically recognised standard of care in the government designated and authorised centres/hospitals.”

“The compensation for serious adverse event will be paid by sponsor (BBIL) in case if the SAE is proven to be causally related to the vaccine,” the consent form said.

In phase 1 and phase 2 clinical trials, Covaxin has demonstrated the ability to produce antidotes against COVID- 19. However, the clinical efficacy of the vaccine was yet to be established and it was still being studied in phase 3 clinical trials, the vaccine maker said.

“Hence it is important to appreciate that receiving the vaccine does not mean that other precautions related to COVID-19 need not be followed,” the consent form said.

According to an industry expert, the company is liable to pay compensation to people in case of serious side effects as the vaccine is being administered while in the clinical trial mode.

The central licensing authority has granted permission for the sale or distribution of Covaxin for restricted use in emergency situations in public interest as an abundant caution, in clinical trial mode.

Meanwhile, Suchitra Ella, joint managing director, Bharat Biotech International Limited, on her Twitter account said: “Covaxin & Bharat Biotech is truly humbled & honoured to be of service to the nation & the fraternity of all first responders of covid who have served public health.” — PTI
