Lalitpur rape survivor’s mother files FIR for domestic violence, sodomy with son | Kanpur News


Jhansi: Barely a couple of days after a 17-year-old girl in Lalitpur lodged a case of rape against her father and several others, including SP and BSP functionaries, her mother on Thursday lodged an FIR against her husband, claiming that her son was sodomised and she had to continuously face domestic violence in which her in-laws were also involved.
In her police complaint against 11 persons, including her husband and in-laws, she has claimed that in 2003 her husband had kidnapped her from home after drugging her parents. He had also taken her gold ornaments. Later, she was taken to Jabalpur where she was forcibly married to him in an Arya Samaj temple in presence of his relatives.
She further claimed that her husband continuously thrashed and tortured her from the very first day of the marriage. After getting pregnant, she was asked to get aborted but when she refused, her in-laws stopped giving her food. She somehow survived by taking food from the neighbours. After giving birth to a daughter, she was again subjected to continuous torture.
After she conceived once more, her husband thrashed her severely and tried to damage her private part. Her in-laws tried to kill her on several occasions by dosing her with kerosene oil, by poisoning her and by trying to throw acid but each time she survived, she claimed in the police complaint.
She further mentioned in the complaint that her husband used to sodomise her son also apart from taking her daughter to various places after her school and trying to sell her and coaxing her to “go to one Tilak’s place and he will make you rich”.
On the basis of the complaint, police have lodged an FIR against several persons, including the husband, sister-in-law and mother-in-law of the woman under sections 498A (husband or relative of husband of a woman subjecting her to cruelty), 366 (Kidnapping, abducting or inducing woman to compel her marriage, etc), 323 (punishment for voluntarily causing hurt), 506 (Punishment for criminal intimidation), 326 (voluntarily causing grievous hurt by dangerous weapons or means), 377 (unnatural offences) of IPC besides Section 4/5 of the Protection of Women from Domestic Violence Act, 2005.
The police have also lodged two separate FIRs against 200 BSP and 250 SP party functionaries who had come to submit a memorandum against the FIR for violating Section 144 and Covid safety protocol on Wednesday.
Meanwhile, police have so far arrested five persons, including the father of the girl.
SP Lalitpur, Nikhil Pathak said, “I have constituted a special investigation team (SIT) under an additional SP for a free and fair investigation into the entire episode. Also, some more police teams are coming from the range to intensify the procedure of arrests. Our teams are continuously searching the accused, both in the district and outside the district.”
On Tuesday, a 17-year-old girl had lodged an FIR against 28 persons, including her father and sitting party office-bearers of SP and BSP along with some close relatives for raping her for the past few years.
