The Indore police have decided to book a girl for allegedly filing a false case of gang rape, kidnapping and attempted murder after an investigation revealed that the charges were false.
Harinarayan Chari Mishra, IGP, Indore, said
A case will be filed under section 182/211 against the girl after man investigation by the police revealed that these claims were false.
Adding further Mishra told media,
The footage of more than 150 CCTVs were checked and scientific evidence along the railway tracks from Pardeshipura to Banganga was collected during the probe. The police found that the claims made by the girl were baseless and inconsistent.
On Tuesday night, the girl had told the police she was kidnapped by two men and gang-raped by them and three others. She also informed officials that they had stabbed her, put her in a jute bag, and threw her on a railway track.
Pardeshipura police had registered cases of kidnapping, gang-rape, and attempt to murder in this connection following the complaint.
Cops from two police stations in Indore East swung into action and the B.Com student who is a Dalit was taken to the MY Hospital (the state’s biggest government hospital). CSP-Pardeshipura Nihit Upadhyaya told The New Indian Express,
Around 50-60 cops from two police stations, besides senior police officials, including the circle SP (CSP), additional SP (ASP) and SP (East) remained awake all through the night (nearly 20hrs) investigating the sensational crime, after registering a case of abduction and gang-rape on the girl’s complaint.
The prime accused in the initial case and the girl were in love and used to live in the same locality, according to the police. The girl is yet to reveal the reason for filing a false case as she is still recovering.
As reported by The New Indian Express, two years ago, the girl had lodged two molestation cases at the Pardeshipura police station of Indore in one of which she has already received around Rs 2 lakh under the government’s victim compensation scheme. Initially, the girl said that owing to an ongoing trial in one molestation case, she is under severe stress and attempted killing herself on Tuesday evening.
However, as per the ongoing probe into the case till now, the possibility of the girl having planned to implicate the 25-year-old man in a false case cannot be ruled out. This would have fetched her more money under the victim compensation scheme.
