Portraying courage and refusing to bow down to abuse, an 18-year-old girl from Delhi got her parents booked for accepting a bribe from two people accused of raping her. Her parents also forced her to retract her statement.


What led to the arrest?

The girl was allegedly gang-raped in August 2017. She said that the two men were unknown to her. “They had kidnapped me after which they raped me and left me at an abandoned spot,” a police official quoted the girl as saying, as reported by The Times of India. She, along with her parents filed a police complaint and the two accused were arrested. One of them was out on interim bail.

Sunil Shahi, one of the accused met with her parents on April 8 while the girl was inside the house. He offered Rs 20 lakh to her parents so that they convince their daughter to retract her statements in the court. She said that she belongs from a humble background and her parents could not refuse the opportunity. Her parents then asked for Rs 5 lakh as advance to convince the girl.

She said that as soon as Shahi left her house, she went up to her parents to ask for justification as she heard the entire conversation. Instead, they tried to convince her to give a false statement.

“I completely denied taking back the case, but my parents didn’t back out either. They kept trying to convince me and I stuck to my stand. The next morning they thrashed me and blackmailed me, saying that they were poor and needed that money,” she said in her complaint, reported The Times of India.


Reporting to the police

The next day someone came and handed over the advance money which her mother hid under the bed. The girl took the money and went to Aman Vihar police station to lodge a complaint.

Her parents were booked under IPC Sections 195 (A) (threatening any person to give false evidence), 506 (threatening any person to give false evidence) and 120 (B) (punishment of criminal conspiracy) and Section 75 of the Juvenile Justice Act was registered.

Her mother who was unaware of her going to the police station was arrested from the house. However, the father managed to flee.
