Arrest count goes up in Hisar rape case

Under pressure from all quarters for having failed to nab the alleged rapists of a teenaged Dalit girl in Hisar district, Haryana Police Wednesday claimed they have arrested nine people for the crime.

However, out of the eight men named by the victim for her gang-rape 9 Sep, only four have been arrested so far. The others taken into custody are those who sheltered the main accused.

The father of the girl committed suicide Sep 18 after he came to know that his daughter had been gang-raped and that a video clip of the crime made by the accused had been circulated in the district. Director General of Police Ranjiv Singh Dalal said police had arrested two people from Almora district of Uttarakhand, along with three main culprits, Vikas, Rajkumar and Pawan. Two other people were arrested for sheltering the accused.

Dalal said that of the two people arrested earlier, Baljeet alias Sittu was on police remand up to 29 Sep.

He said: ‘The Hisar superintendent of police had been directed to approach the district and sessions judge with a request to constitute a fast track court so that the gang-rape case could be decided within three months.’
