Wadakencherry rape case: Victim’s statement recorded

Thrissur: The police team, probing the Wadakencherry rape case, on Sunday recorded the statement of the victim.

She was questioned at an undisclosed place by the women police officers in the probe team. The police had earlier asked for the victim’s approval to appear before the probe team.

The investigation team, led by Palakkad ASP G Poonguzhali IPS, is comprised of Dr J Himendranath (City Police Commissioner, Thrissur city), R. Nishanthini, (SP - Thrissur Rural), Ollur Circle Inspector K K Sajeev, and Alathur Circle Inspector K A Elizabeth.

The 2014 case became public on Thursday when the victim along with her husband and two women activists told her horrid experience to the media in the state capital.

The rape victim, who hails from Thrissur district, and accompanied by popular film dubbing artiste Bhagyalekshmi and social activist Parvathy along with her husband, told a crowded press conference that she was raped by CPI-M Wadakencherry councillor P.N.Jayanthan, his brother and two others.

Bhagyalekshmi, who is also a social activist, told reporters that this victim called her some time back after she participated in a TV debate about rape victims.

"In my debate I mentioned that there are so many victims who do not come out. That night I got a call from a lady saying she wants to meet me. The next day this lady met me... I was shocked to hear her tale and I decided to make this public and am here," she said.

The rape victim and her husband faced the cameras with their faces fully covered.

"This happened two years back and I told my husband much later.... when we complained to the local police, they treated us very badly and when the accused threatened me that my husband and kids would be eliminated, I felt scared and retracted my statements under the advice of police," said the victim.
