RAIPUR: Two months after a minor girl killed herself after being gang-raped by seven men at a marriage in Kondagaon district of Chhattisgarh, her father tried to kill himself on Tuesday, allegedly because he couldn’t get an FIR registered to hunt justice for her.
He survived, and it spurred the police into taking action within the case. The girl’s body has been exhumed for an autopsy, Bastar range IG P Sundarraj told TOI.
National Commission for the cover of kid Rights chairperson Yashwant Jain has written to the Kondagaon SP, seeking action against the local police inspector for not registering an FIR earlier. The commission has asked for an in-depth investigation report within 10 days.
While police say they weren’t informed about the gangrape earlier, sources in Kondagaon say local police had promised her father that they might take action but did nothing.
