Two Cops suspended for trying to set ablaze woman ​in UP

Jul 7,  2:30 PM

up-mapTwo accused policemen ​who allegedly tried to set a 40-year-old woman ​ablaze after attempting to rape her​ in Barabanki​ in Uttar Pradesh have been suspended.​ The victim ​had ​suffered serious burns and died last night.​ She told Barabanki district magistrate that the incident took place when she went to the Kothi police station to enquire about her husband, who was detained by the police a day earlier.​ The two policemen then allegedly tried raping her, after which they doused her with petrol and set her on fire.​ Superintendent of police said​ that the SHO, Kothi and one Sub Inspector have been suspended​ and an FIR was registered against the duo as well. ​

The woman’s son who is a journalist with a local Hindi daily,​ told ​media that there was a clash in their village a few days ago, ​in which one person was injured.​ Following that, police detained the victim’s husband​, who is a relative of one of the accused in the clash.​ In her statement, the woman said​ that the two policemen took ​her to a room in the police station. They snatched ​her jewellery and ​allegedly ​tried to outrage ​her modesty. She said when she tried to raise an alarm, they poured petrol on her and set her afire​.

The suspended policemen have, however, denied the charges saying the woman had herself poured petrol and set herself ablaze. The incident comes just few weeks after a Shahjahanpur based journalist was set ablaze allegedly on the ​behest of UP Minister Ram Murthi Verma​.​
