A minor girl, a victim of gang rape in Ghazipur area of Fatehpur district, has filed a complaint with the police claiming that the family members of the accused have threatened her with “Unnao-like” fate if she did not withdraw her complaint against the accused.

According to the police sources, about 25 days ago, a 16-year-old Dalit teenager from a village under Ghazipur police station was allegedly abducted and raped by four youth belonging to the same village. After registering a complaint with the charges of gang-rape, the police arrested the main accused Pradeep and sent him to jail, while the remaining three accused are still absconding. The police have intensified their search operations to locate the remaining three accused.

On Tuesday, the gang-rape victim, along with her entire family, reached the office of the Additional Superintendent of Police and lodged a complaint against the family of the accused for threatening to kill her like the Unnao gang-rape victim if she did not withdraw her complaint.

Jafarganj Circle Officer Shripal Yadav said that the probe is underway to determine if the victim was threatened. If the facts mentioned in the complaint are found out to be true, a fresh case of criminal intimidation will be registered against the accused, he said.

The father of the victim has alleged that the family members of the accused, who hail from the same village, are pressurising him into accepting money for settling the case. “The families of the accused are intimidating my daughter of dire fate like the Unnao gang-rape victim if she does not reconcile the matter,” he said.

On the early hours of Thursday, December 5, the 23-year-old Unnao rape survivor was set on fire by pouring kerosene on her by five men, including the duo who are accused of raping her a year ago. The incident occurred at Sindupur village under the Bihar police station area on the wee hours of Thursday and has caused tension in the area.

The rape accused and his friends dragged the woman outside of her village, took her into the fields and doused her in petrol before setting her on fire. She was raped by the five men in March while the police could manage to arrest only three of them and two others were still on the run.
