Shahjahanpur (Uttar Pradesh): Police are investigating a gang-rape survivour's fresh complaint of rape by a sub-inspector here.
The 35-year-old woman, who was allegedly gang-raped by five men, said she went to the Jalalabad police station to file the complaint on November 30.
A sub-inspector then took her to an adjoining room on the pretext of filing her complaint and sexually assaulted her, she alleged.
Additional Director General of Police (ADG) of Bareilly, Avinash Chandra, ordered an inquiry regarding this.
Superintendent of Police (city) Sanjay Kumar said the 'allegations are serious' and police are investigating it.
The woman claimed she was gang-raped by five men on November 30. "The five accused forcibly dragged me inside the car, took me to a nearby field and raped me. Soon after that, I went to the Jalalabad police station where the sub-inspector also raped me," the woman, a widow, said.
When the local police refused to file a case, she said she had approached senior officers. She met ADG Avinash Chandra who then ordered a probe by the station house officer (SHO) of Mahila Thana.
A senior policeman, on condition of anonymity, said, "The woman is being used to settle scores. She had already registered four cases of sexual assaults in Shahjahanpur and had given over two dozen complaints so far. A circle officer is already investigating one of her recent complaints."
Shahjahanpur SSP S.Anand said, "The woman never approached us with the complaint against the sub-inspector. She directly went to the ADG. She has already registered a few complaints of sexual assault and all the cases are under investigation. The circle officer of Jalalabad has been asked to probe the gang-rape complaint and submit a detailed report."
