Charges of gang rape false: UP police

Jhansi: Uttar Pradesh police, probing allegations of gang rape by two minor girls against the men in uniform, on Wednesday said the two cooked up the story to explain their getting back home late.

Though the probe found the allegations false, still a medical examination of the girls has been ordered, they said.

SP (Rural) PK Tewari said one of the girls, both of whom belong to the family of a police constable, admitted to the false charges relating to the July 4 incident in Mau Ranipur area.

The SP said the girls, who were waiting for a train at night, were brought to the police station to save them from eve-teasing.

Since they got delayed, the girls cooked up the story to evade embarrassment, indicting five policemen of raping them, the SP said.
