Kaushambi rape case: Third accused Mohammad Akib arrested in the minor Dalit girl rape case

On Tuesday, September 24, the main accused, Adil, in the rape case was arrested after he was shot at in a police encounter when he tried to escape from a mazaar where he was hiding.

The third accused in the horrific Kaushambi rape case Mohammad Akib aka ‘Badka’ has been finally arrested after almost a week of being on the run. The Police caught him on Thursday and a chargesheet has been filed against all three.

It is believed that the hearing will be made fast-track under the POCSO Act.

On Tuesday, September 24, the main accused, Adil, in the rape case was arrested after he was shot at in a police encounter when he tried to escape from a mazaar where he was hiding. Acting on a tip-off, the police reached Rawatpur but Adil then tried to escape while climbing the walls. When the police followed him, he started firing at them. The police also indulged in retaliatory firing where Adil was shot in his legs. A country-made pistol and motorcycle was also recovered from him.

In a deplorable incident, on 21st September, a 15-year-old minor Dalit girl was allegedly gang-raped and filmed by three men in Ghosia village of Kaushambi district that falls under Saray Akil police station, near Prayagraj, Uttar Pradesh. In a video of the gang-rape that has gone viral, the girl can reportedly be heard saying, “Allah ki kasam, mere saath mat karo (for Allah’s sake, don’t do this with me).” Amidst screams and desperate cries, the helpless girl kept begging for mercy. However, the brutes refused to spare her. As per reports, the villagers nearby rush to the spot after hearing the victim wailing and screaming.

One accused Nazik was caught by the villagers and beaten up by the angered crowd while Adil and a third unknown culprit, who is now identified as Mohammad Akib, managed to flee.

According to media reports, when the father of the girl went to the police station to report the rape in Kaushambi, the police thrashed him instead. The girl can be seen saying how she was pushed into the field and raped brutally. “Muslim,” she says when asked who were the perpetrators. In the video, the father of the girl says, “Three men raped my daughter, hence I went to the police station to file a report. There I was beaten up,” the father said. Angered over police apathy, the villagers reached the police station to stage a protest. Eventually, the police registered a case against all three accused.
