Bharatpur: The Haryana Police on Wednesday arrested two absconding accused from Bharatpur's Jureha village in connection with the rape of a girl in Faridabad.
On January 13, three men in Faridabad abducted a 22-year-old woman when she was returning home after work and gangraped her in a moving car for several hours. The accused later dropped her near a petrol pump at Fatehpur Sikri in Uttar Pradesh.
Following the incident, an FIR was registered and a special investigation team (SIT) was formed to nab the culprits.
The incident came close on the heels of another incident last month, in which a six-year-old girl was raped and killed in Haryana's Uklana area in Hisar district.
In the past four days, five incidents of rape and gang rape have been reported in the state.
In three of these incidents, minor girls were not only raped but also brutalised by the accused. In one case, the private parts and internal organs of the 15-year-old victim were inflicted with wounds, while in another the accused committed necrophilia on the minor victim of 11 years. In a separate incident, an 11-year-old girl was raped and killed in Panipat last week.
In December last year, a six-year-old girl was allegedly raped and killed in Haryana's Uklana area in Hisar district.
In the wake of recent incidents of rape and murders being reported from different parts of Haryana, DGP B S Sandhu on Tuesday held a meeting with senior officers of the police department and asked field units to accord priority to the cases.
Meanwhile, the opposition Congress on Wednesday demanded the dismissal of the M L Khattar government in Haryana, alleging a complete breakdown of law and order in the state after two minor Dalit girls were allegedly raped and murdered in separate incidents.
A Congress delegation, led by former Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda, submitted a memorandum to the Governor today and sought the imposition of President's Rule in the state. Alleging that lawlessness prevails in the state and there was a complete breakdown of the law and order machinery, the Congress urged the Governor to recommend to the Centre to dismiss the Khattar government.
