Police rescue woman who was gang-raped and sold


Victim’s son murdered, three accused held

Three men who allegedly gang-raped a Maharashtrian woman, murdered her son and sold her to a man in Rajasthan have been arrested by the Haryana Police.

Apart from them the police also nabbed the man who bought the woman and two other intermediaries. The accused were produced before a court on Sunday which remanded the three accused of murder and gangrape in three days’ police custody and sent the remaining three to jail.

The police said the victim along with her son had reached Rewari railway station from Maharashtra a few days ago.

There she met Mukesh, a truck driver and resident of Kheejuri village who took her to his house.

After some days when Mukesh was out of station, his brother Satish started living there. One day, Satish called his friends Jaipal and Hawa Singh, residents of Kheejuri, to his house. They took liquor and then they gang-raped the woman and strangled to death her son. The trio then sold the woman to someone in Rajasthan through Surajbhan, a resident of Nangal Sehbaazpur.

Medical examination

The crime came to light when the village sarpanch informed the police. The police not only recovered the body of the child but also found the victim in Rajasthan. Her medical examination confirmed that she had been gang-raped.

The police said those arrested so far include Satish, Hawa Singh and Jaipal who killed the child and gang-raped the woman; Sandeep, resident of village Nangli Maataur, district Alwar, Rajasthan, who had bought her; and the intermediaries Surajbhan and Dayachand.
