UP cops ignore gangrape, refuse to register case

UP cops ignore gangrape,  refuse to register case
UP Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav may want to give out a loud and clear signal by suspending an IAS officer who tried to force himself on a woman on a train, but that has failed to impress the Mathura police brass. The police in Mathura refused to register a case of gangrape in which three women of an orchestra party were gangraped at gunpoint by a dozen armed youths a week back.

After failing to get redressal from Mathura police officials, the victims met the Agra zone IG Bhavesh Kumar Singh who got a case registered with Etmadullah police station. The IG said in no uncertain terms that the matter would be probed threadbare and the perpetrators would be dealt with firmly. He added that action would be taken against cops who refused to take cognisance of the serious crime.

As per reports, a popular orchestra by the name of ‘Shama Group’ of Agra, comprising several women artistes, went to perform in Mathura on 24 Sep.

When the troupe was returning on early next morning, about a dozen youths intercepted their vehicles, roughed up the male members and left the scene after abducting the women.


A senior Indian Administrative Services officer of the UP govt was was booked on Monday for molesting a woman on board the Lucknow Mail, railway police said. Senior IAS officer Shashi Bhushan, a 2001 batch officer, was booked by the Railway Police Force after the woman, lodged a formal complaint with them on her arrival in Lucknow, said Inspector General of Police [Railways] Ashutosh Pandey.

They were travelling in air-conditioned coach of Lucknow Mail where the officer allegedly misbehaved with the girl.
