2 months after being gang-raped and run over, a Dalit woman loses her leg


Mature: A 30-year-old Dalit woman from the Kosi Kalan region lost her leg, nearly two months after she was gang-raped and the accused crushed her leg with a motorbike.

The woman had to undergo surgery to amputate her left leg.

The woman’s family finally filed a complaint after weeks of rushing her from one hospital to another.

The FIR was registered by the police against the three men charged under Articles 376 D (gang rape), 328 (causing bodily harm) and 326 (wilfully causing grievous bodily harm) of the ICC, as well as Article 3 ( 2)(5) (punishment for atrocities) of SC/ST.

Police Station Officer (SHO) of Kosi Kalan Police Station Anuj Kumar said two of the defendants had been arrested, while one remains “unidentified”.

The woman, in her complaint, claimed that on May 24, she was traveling to Kosi Kalan from her village to withdraw money from the bank, when one of the defendants, who was from her village, offered to conduct.

Along the way, he called two of his friends, who then forced her to swallow a drink mixed with intoxicants before raping her one by one.

The three defendants crushed his legs with a motorbike and were left near a railway line in Kosi Kalan.

The railway police spotted her in an unconscious state and notified her family.

She was rushed to a government hospital in Kosi Kalan and doctors later referred her to Mathura District Hospital. She was then transferred to another hospital in Agra and then to Haryana, where her badly infected leg was amputated.
