A massive protest is being held outside a police station in Rajasthan’s Dausa district after a four-year-old girl was allegedly raped by a cop. Villagers, who have turned up outside the police station in large numbers, beat up the sub-inspector accused of raping the girl.
Sub-inspector Bhupendra Singh, who was on election duty, allegedly lured the girl into his room on Friday afternoon and raped her. The girl is currently admitted in a government hospital. The accused has been arrested and is being investigated, Assistant Superintendent of Police Bajrang Singh said.
“A case has been registered in Rahuwas police station against an SI identified as Bhupendra based on the complaint by a family living nearby. They have accused him of rape. A medical examination is being done of the minor girl. Necessary action will be taken,” Mr Singh said.
लालसोट में 7 साल की दलित बच्ची के साथ पुलिसकर्मी द्वारा दुष्कर्म की घटना से लोगों में भारी आक्रोश है। मासूम को न्याय दिलाने के लिए मौके पर पहुंच गया हूं। अशोक गहलोत सरकार के नाकारापन से निरंकुश हुई पुलिस चुनाव जैसे संवेदनशील मौके पर भी ज्यादती करने से बाज नहीं आ रही। pic.twitter.com/xnIB13eyWi

Bharatiya Janata Party MP Kirodi Lal Meena also reached the spot and said, “There is a huge anger among the people over the incident of rape of a Dalit girl by a policeman in Lalsot. I have reached the spot to get justice to the innocent child.”
“The police, which has become autocratic due to the incompetence of the Ashok Gehlot government, is not desisting from committing atrocities even on a sensitive occasion like elections,” he added.
“The accused, ASI Bhupendra Singh, is facing severe action, and he will soon be dismissed from his job. The police, along with the family, will provide assistance to all the affected members of the family in every possible way,” Meena added.
The BJP MP also said the family of the survivor would be given compensation for the incident.
