14-year-old Indian girl abducted and gang-raped by two police officers
The girl went outside to go use the bathroom in the afternoon on New Year's Eve when the two cops took the girl to the police station and raped her. The suspects are thought to be on the run, and a manhunt is underway to find them.
A 14-year-old Indian girl was abducted and gang-raped by two cops in a police station.
The incident happened on New Year's Eve after the teenager was abducted from her house by constables Veer Pal Singh Yadav and Avnish Yadav, reports The Hindu.
She was abducted as she went outside to go to the bathroom, then taken to a police station in Baduan, Utter Pradesh, northern India.
A medical examination has confirmed the rape, said Inspector-General of police, A. Satish Ganesh.
The two suspects are thought to be on the run and a manhunt has been launched.
Child Development Minister, Maneka Gandhi, condemned the incident as "unfortunate" and added: "Instead of providing justice, the state police is itself breaking laws and committing atrocities on people and stern actions need to be taken against them."
The latest incident has taken place in the same region where two girls were gang-raped and then found hanging from a tree last year.
