April 8th, 2018

Allegedly gang-raped for months and forcibly made to abort her five-month-old fetus, a 20-year old Dalit woman from Satna district of Madhya Pradesh arrived at the Superintendent of Police’s office along with a bag containing the aborted fetus on Wednesday morning.


What was the case?

The two brothers, Neeraj and Dheeraj Pandey, who lived in the same locality, allegedly raped the Dalit woman “for months” and when she got pregnant, Neeraj promised to marry her initially, but later backed out. The accused then abducted her on February 2 and raped her for a fortnight.

On Tuesday evening, when she was in Satna with her mother, Neeraj Pandey, Dheeraj Pandey, along with two other accomplices, Prem Singh and Rajkumar forcibly took her to a clinic, where the nurse Sapna Pandey forcefully carried out the abortion of the six-month-old fetus.

The woman was threatened to throw the aborted fetus in a “nullah” (drain) or else she and her family would be killed. They were returned home after the arrival of her father who promised that the matter won’t be disclosed to the police.

However, the woman along with the kin went to Satna district’s Civil Lines police station to register the complaint, but no motion was taken due to the accuser’s pressure, instead, they were beaten up.

Undeterred, the woman then went to the SP’s office along with a bag containing the aborted fetus.


Police’s response-

The Superintendent of Police, Rajesh Hingankar told Hindustan Times, “The police have filed cases against the accused of rape, kidnapping, forced abortion and criminal intimidation, as well as under relevant provisions of the Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes (Prevention of Atrocities) Act.”

“Five persons, including the prime accused Neeraj Pandey, his aides and the nurse who allegedly carried the abortion of fetus have been booked, and attempts are being made to arrest them,” told Satna’s SP Rajesh Hingankar.

Sub-inspector RP Tiwari, who is investigating the case, stated that the particulars of the case are nonetheless very sketchy and they are yet to take the girl’s assertion.

“The place she was raped, the place the abortion happened and the functions of different individuals, if any, are all a part of the investigation. We registered the FIR late final night time on the basis of the lady’s complaint,” Tiwari further stated.


Rape cases in Madhya Pradesh

According to the State Crime Data Bureau, Madhya Pradesh has reported 5300 incidents of rape in 2017 as compared to 4391 rape cases during 2015. It continues to be one of the unsafe and harmful locations for a woman.
