Jammu: A day after death sentence was given to four accused in the Delhi gang-rape case and it was expected that this verdict may act as a deterrent, three police men here in Reasi district allegedly abducted and gang-raped a teenage girl.

The girl was abducted from Talwara Migrant camp in Reasi on Thursday evening by Assistant Sub Inspector Mahesh Mehta, Satvir Singh, personal assistant to Reasi SSP, and Special Police Officer (SPO) Karnail Singh, a senior police official said.

On a complaint of the girl`s parents yesterday, police raided a house in Marhi area and arrested the ASI and SPO while Satvir managed to flee, the official said, adding the girl was also rescued.

"We have launched a hunt to nab Satvir," Reasi SSP MS Chouhan said.

Medical examinations of the girl had been done and she was produced in court and kept in a women`s shelter, he added.

The incident triggered protests by Talwara migrants who blocked roads and staged sit-in.

It is unbelievable that policemen who are appointed to safeguard the entire society from criminals are getting involved in such heinous crimes.
