A 20-year-old woman was allegedly gang-raped inside a lock-up by five policemen in Madhya Pradesh’s Rewa district in May this year.

In a shocking incident, in the Mangawan town of Rewa district in Madhya Pradesh, a 20-year-old woman, who is accused of murder, was allegedly gang-raped by five policemen for ten days inside a lock-up in May.

When a legal team comprising of an additional district judge, a law officer and two lawyers visited the prison for inspection, the incident came to light on October 10.  The woman informed them of the alleged crime. Following this, a judicial enquiry was ordered by the district judge into the incident.

Meanwhile, Rakesh Singh, Rewa superintendent of police (SP) said the woman has claimed that she was sexually assaulted between May 9 and 21, contrary to which the police records say that she was held on May 21, along with her friend, five days after they allegedly murdered one Sudha Verma at a village under the territorial limits of Mangawan police station.

Woman reveals why she didn’t speak up earlier 

The woman was asked by the legal team, as to why she hadn’t spoken up earlier? Advocate Satish Mishra, who was one of the members of the legal team, told that she said she had told the warden three months ago. She also identified the policemen who had done this to her and there were policemen in jail too, so she was scared.

The woman also claimed that the cops threatened to frame her father in the murder case if she revealed the crime to anyone. Meanwhile, the warden has admitted that the woman had informed her about the crime. The additional district judge recorded her statement which was later sent to the district judge, who then ordered a judicial inquiry into the case.
