Twist in ‘rape’ case, woman claims GRP jawan helped her


BIJNOR: In a major twist in the alleged rape case involving a government railway police (GRP) constable, the woman on Wednesday claimed that the jawan in fact helped her in getting a seat in Chandigarh-Lucknow Express.

The 27-year-old woman was produced in the court of chief judicial magistrate, where she retracted her earlier complaint in which she had accused the constable of raping her in an empty rail coach meant for disabled passengers.

Police said that even her medical examination confirms that she wasn’t raped. “The woman was produced in the court on Wednesday. She recorded her statement in front of the magistrate. She said that she was not threatened or raped by the constable,” Vijay Kumar Singh, GRP SHO and the investigating officer in the case, said.

Kumar added, “In her statement, the woman claimed that she wasn’t well and had wrongly boarded the train from Lucknow on Monday night. Since she was travelling in the sleeper coach without a ticket, the TTE asked her to get down, but the constable came to her rescue and got her a seat in the nearly empty coach meant for disabled passengers. Her medical report shows that she is a few months pregnant and maybe she fell unconscious on Tuesday because of weakness.”

GRP circle officer HP Kasana also confirmed the development and said that the woman has retracted her earlier statement.
