Rohtak, July 18: In an incident that shows that even the judiciary is not spared from the evils of caste system, 5 upper caste men rape a Dalit college going girl in Rohtak. Incidentally, these were the very men who had raped her 3 years ago in Bhiwani. 2 of the assaulters were arrested back then but released on bail.
The girl in her 20s, was kidnapped by the men when she left her college. She was kidnapped in a car, drugged and raped when she was unconscious. Her body was found in the bush afterwards. Passers-by, who found her in a bad shaped and semi-naked took her to the nearby Rohtak Civil Hospital. They also informed the police.
Since the last incident, the culprits have been trying to settle the issue out-of-court with the girl's family at a price of Rs 50 lakh. In return, the family was urged to withdraw the case that demanded the arrest of the remaining three and the re-arrest of the two who had been released on bail. Following pressure from the men, the girl's family shifted to Rohtak from Bhiwani.
The men are all in their 20s and are students of the same college that the girl studied in 3 years ago. Several Dalit organizations held demonstrations yesterday at the residence of Rohtak MLA, Manish Grove, to protest against the crime.
