Haryana rape victim put behind bars

Chandigarh, Sep 11 (IANS) The Haryana Police have pulled off a shocking one. A rape victim who has been seeking justice for herself was arrested before being bailed out Wednesday.

The victim, who had alleged that a youth, Rahul, had sexual relations with her for two years after promising to marry her, was arrested in Hisar town, 260 km from here, Monday.

She was arrested after she allegedly threatened to kill woman Deputy Superintendent of Police Dharna Yadav in the presence of another officer.

The rape victim, who lives in Hisar's Sector 13, was arrested by police on charges of criminal intimidation.

The victim complained to police in February against Rahul. Police booked him for rape but did not arrest him, apparently owing to his family's political links.

The victim started a protest against police Monday.

A police officer of Hisar district said they took action as per law.
