Rewari gang-rape victim’s mother rejects government compensation


The mother of the victim of alleged gangrape case of Rewari has rejected on Sunday the Rs.2 lakh compensation cheque offered by Haryana Government.

"A cheque of Rs 2 lakh has been given to the father of a girl who was gang-raped. This has been offered to us while no accused has been arrested yet. Few people from the government came to us and gave this cheque to my husband. She (the victim) is already in depression and now they are giving her money. Instead of doing justice, they have given us cheque. We were hopeful that we will get justice. We want justice, not your cheque. I am giving this back," the victim's mother told media. She repeated the damand for the justice for her daughter.

Earlier, the Police identified that one of the three accused in the alleged gang rape of a 19-year-old college student in Haryana is an Army soldier. A special investigation team (SIT) has been set up to investigate the case.

Police team has been sent to Rajasthan to arrest him, Haryana DGP B S Sandhu said on September 15. But till now no one was arrested related to the case. The three men allegedly abducted the woman from a bus stop and raped her in Haryana’s Mahendargarh District on September 12 till she fell unconscious, and dumped her at a bus stand.

Police officer Naazneed Bhasin while heading the SIT reportedly said, “Medical report confirms rape. We’ve made multiple teams to nab the accused. I appeal to the people to give us any information they have regarding the case and have announced a reward of Rs. 1 lakh for those who help us in cracking the case.”
