A 13-year-old girl was gang-raped and then raped again by the police officer she reported it to. The shocking incident took place in Uttar Pradesh, India. Tilakdhari Saroj, the police officer, was subsequently apprehended after fleeing the scene of the crime. 

The girl's father told authorities that on April 22, four men took his daughter away to the neighboring state Madhya Pradesh, where they raped her for four days. The men then took the girl back to her hometown in Uttar Pradesh's Lalitpur district only to flee later. According to the police record, the girl then went to the police station the following day with her aunt to report the rape. Shockingly, the police officer Saroj took the girl into a room and raped her in front of her aunt.

Saroj has been charged under the POCSO (Protection of Children from Sexual Offenses) Act, which was passed in 2012 and may land him in prison for the rest of his life if convicted. Saroj is cited as adding, “Investigative agencies should be called in to conduct the probe into the matter with utter honesty.” He continued, “After the investigation, if it's proven I'm guilty then...I am 100% innocent.” 



 

 

The 29 other officers who were present at the police station at the time of the alleged rape have also been suspended as a result of his arrest. Additionally, four men linked to the initial gang rape event, as well as a lady whose role in the case is now unknown are also arrested but charges are yet to be pressed.

In India, the incident aroused a big outrage, forcing politicians and activists to demand immediate action to protect women.



 

 

According to the government's most recent crime data, about 32,000 rapes or attempted rapes were reported in India in 2020, but the number could be significantly higher because many sexual attacks go undetected. In response to public pressure following a series of assaults on children, India enacted the death penalty as a punishment for rape of females under the age of 12. But is it being really followed?

A lot of people have started to speak out on this matter since the news came out. One person on Twitter wrote, “A 13-year-old girl was raped by 4 men in Lalitpur. When she went to the police station, she was allegedly raped by the station-in-charge. UP under @myogiadityanath has become hell for women. If cops will assault girls instead of protecting them, where will the women of UP go!” while another said, “In Uttar Pradesh, a minor dalit girl was raped again by the SHO when she went to file the rape case at the police station. No political leader is interested because the elections just got over in the state. We live in a morally dead society.” 



 

 



 

 

Another person said, “This is unacceptable, A 13 year old girl went to Police Station to file a rape case and then there the police raped her again. First, she was kidnapped and raped in Bhopal, later by police. When it's going to stop? Never??? 😒🥲 @Uppolice ???” O(ne other person stated, “13 yrs girl was raped by 4 men, and  when victim approached to police for filing FIR, police too raped victim. This isn't first time but happened 1000s time. Isn't it national shame? Law protectors are predators & criminals, what to expect from such police as none is law abiding.”
