Mother arrested for forcing rape-victim to change statement

Mother arrested for forcing rape-victim to change statement

She alleged that her parents accepted a bribe from the accused and were later forced to withdraw the rape case. "On April 10, while the parents had gone to the court, the minor girl took out the cash, Rs 4.96 lakhs which was hidden under a bed and went over to police", said the officer. The accused offered her parents Rs 20 lakh if they could convince her to change her statement and withdraw the case.

"The girl came with a wad of notes and said it was Rs 3 lakh". As per reports by TOI, the victim showed courage and chose to raise the alarm over the situation. The police said that taking cognisance of her compliant, an FIR was registered. According to the girl, she was raped by two men in 2017, after which the accused were arrested.

It has been reported that the parents of the rape victim had allegedly been pressuring the girl to change her statement before the police. The girl then pulled out the bag containing the cash and arrived at Aman Vihar police station to lodge a complaint against her parents. The girl told them that she was allegedly gangraped previous year, and that the accused had given her parents money to withdraw the case. A case was filed under IPC Sections 195 (A) (threatening any person to give false evidence), 506 (threatening any person to give false evidence) and 120 (B) (punishment of criminal conspiracy) and Section 75 of the Juvenile Justice Act.

Police have launched a manhunt to arrest the accused and a team was formed to investigate the matter.

The parents have allegedly been forcing the girl to change her statement ever since.

DCP (outer) M N Tiwari said the girl's mother has been arrested based on a complaint filed by the girl. "We are also looking for the people who were facilitating this crime", the DCP said. When police asked her where she got so much money, they were taken aback by her answer.

The girl has been handed over to the Child Welfare Committee (CWC), which sent her to a children's home.

I'm at a loss for words after hearing about this.

And to the girl, we're sorry you had to go through this.
