A 27-year-old gang rape survivor sets herself and her 12-year-old son on fire on Thursday in Shahjahanpur, Uttar Pradesh. The women took this step allegedly after the UP police repeatedly refused to register a First Investigation Report (FIR) against the three accused of gang rape.

As per the report by Deccan Chronicle, the woman, who was admitted to the hospital with 95 per cent burns, died on Friday morning. However, her son, who suffered 15 per cent burns is in a stable condition. According to the victim’s husband, Ramvir was not at home when the incident happened. While speaking to the police, he alleged that the couple struggled to register a case against the three men who had raped his wife for over a month, but in spite of registering an F.I.R, the police were pressuring them (couple) to take money from the accused and arrive at a compromise.

Dying declaration of the victim

Talking about victim’s dying declaration, in which she named the accused, police chief, Shivasimpi Chanappa, said, “A government official managed to record her dying declaration. The husband of the woman has filed an FIR now, and one person has been named. We have arrested that person. We are taking more steps based on the dying declaration.”

The officer also said that three policemen had been suspended and charged because they did not act on the case. The case has been registered against the three accused and one of them is arrested.

As per the reports, the woman was first raped six months ago, but she was not able to tell anyone because the accused threatened to kill her son. She told her husband a month ago, since then the couple was trying to register a case of gang rape. The victim was again raped by the accused on 18 August.

The Logical Indian Community urges the Uttar Pradesh Police administration to take necessary action against the police staff in question under section 166A (Government disobeying the law).
