Bhiwani (Haryana): A police probe has revealed that what was supposed to be a case of
gang-rape of a woman, followed by her suicide was, in fact, a murder. And the murderers were her own father and brother. Objective: To frame a neighbour, with whom they were involved in a property dispute.
On August 27 at 6 am, the district police control room was informed that a woman, 20 had committed suicide in Kitlana village of the district. When the police reached the spot, they found the woman hanging from the ceiling. A suicide note was seized from the place. The suicide note said that Pradeep, her neighbour, and some of his friends had gang-raped her and out of shame, she was ending her life.
Pradeep was immediately arrested and subjected to intense interrogation. However, the cops suspected that there was something fishy in the entire affair. They then took the woman’s father Sher Singh, brother Bintu and uncle Anil into custody and subjected them to the usual methods to make them sing. And sing they did.
DSP Jagat Singh More told a press conference on Friday that the trio first forced the woman to write a suicide note naming Pradeep and his unnamed friends as her rapists and then hanged her to present it as a suicide. And they did all this just to frame Pradeep, with whom they were having a dispute over a plot of land for the past eight years.
The three have been booked for murder and criminal conspiracy.
