Srinagar: A young woman has accused two Army
personnel of "abduction and rape" in Kulgam district of south
Kashmir, official sources said on Thursday.
The woman, a resident of Gujjardara-Manzgam, reported to
police that she was abducted by some unidentified army
personnel from Kheranbal Behak on July 19 and gang raped, they
said.



She claimed that she was released last night by the
armymen.



Senior police officers rushed to the concerned police
station in Kulgam and recorded her statement, the sources
said, adding the woman will be sent for medical examination.



Meanwhile, tension gripped Damhal Hanjipora, 110 kms from
here, as people came out on the roads and held demonstrations
demanding stern action against the erring personnel, the
sources said, describing the situation as tense but under
control.
Defence spokesman Lt Col J S Brar was not immediately
available for comments as he was out of town.
