but police REFUSED to register a crime

A 23-year-old woman was allegedly gang-raped by three persons in Gurgaon for a period of over four months.

The incident came to light when the victim approached a local court which directed the Gurgaon police to register a case of rape, criminal conspiracy and kidnapping under sections 376 and 506 in the Sector 5 police station on Saturday.

According to police, the victim had come into contact with one Pradeep Kumar, a resident of Nangloi, on November 12 last year.

 

“Kumar had contacted the victim as a call centre representative over the phone. He assured her to provide her a job in a call centre. When she met him the first time at Gurgaon’s Rajendra Park area, the accused took her to a rented house in Nangloi after telling her that some preparation was required before the interview.

“When Kumar reached his rented accommodation in Nangloi, he was joined by his brother Kedaar and cousin Neeraj and all the three raped her one by one at gunpoint,” investigating officer Rashik Lal said.

Kumar later forced the victim to marry Kedaar after threatening her with dire consequences if she revealed her ordeal.

All the three accused then raped her again and again over months. One of the accused always remained present with the victim to keep a watch on her.

However, the woman managed to escape from the Nangloi house on March 15 and reached her home in Laxman Vihar in Gurgaon.

The victim’s family then approached the Gurgaon police, who allegedly refused to register an FIR. Finally, the woman approached a local court and after the court’s direction, the police registered the case.

“We arrested the prime accused Pradeep Kumar from his house on Sunday while Kedaar and Neeraj are on the run. A team has been constituted in the matter and we will nab them soon,” Lal added.

RAPE

A 17-year-old girl was allegedly abducted by three men in Nangloi while she was out for a stroll near her house on Saturday evening and gang-raped. All three accused, in their 30s, have been arrested in Delhi.

According to the police, the girl, who lives with her parents, had gone for a walk late on Saturday evening after dinner. As she reached an isolated stretch some distance away from her house, a white car came from behind and intercepted her.

The three men sitting inside asked her to get in. Upon her refusal, they allegedly dragged her inside and drove away. She tried to raise an alarm, but they covered her mouth.

Justice Sachar alleges pvt water companies getting undue benefits


Nivedita Khandekar, Hindustan Times
New Delhi, January 12, 2013

Continuing his attack on ‘privatisation’ of water supply in Delhi, Justice (retired) Rajinder Sachar has questioned the role of Delhi Jal Board (DJB) in such policy decisions. He has also alleged that private companies were being given undue benefit in the name of 24×7 water supply programmes under public private participation (PPP) model.

A patron of water privatisation and commercialisation resistance committee, Justice Sachar had first written to Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit in November, raising pertinent issues vis-à-vis privatisation attempts by the DJB. However, instead of Dikshit, he received a reply from Jal board’s CEO Debashree Mukherjee. “Bureaucrats are not in the position to respond to constitutional and policy matters raised by me in the earlier letter,” Sachar has pointed out to Dikshit in another letter sent this week.

The DJB had in 2012 launched three pilot programmes for 24×7 water supply under the PPP model to improve the water distribution system in Malviya Nagar, Nangloi, Vasant Vihar and Mehrauli.

Sachar has pointed out that the DJB has referred to reduction of the non-revenue water (NRW) but the contract agreement signed by the Nangloi project shows that the private operator will not be required to reduce NRW for the first four years.

“This shows that the NRW is not an issue except for justifying privatisation,” he alleged.

Sachar also called for an independent tribunal, which will decide on the water tariffs and the changes required in them, with full public participation. “Despite an automatic 10 % hike incorporated in the cycle, the DJB has failed to guarantee that there would be no mid-term revision,” he alleged.

After the CM’s instructions, DJB has not affected its annual 10 % hike in tariff applicable from January 1. “We reassessed that the privatisation of water services will have serious ramifications for the people. I have drawn your attention to the latest anti-privatisation trends in the world (and), would like you to directly deal with the issue,” Sachar has appealed to the CM.

Despite repeated attempts, the CM remained unavailable for comments.

A sitting woman councillor of the North Delhi Municipal Corporation, Satyam Yadav, and her 18-month-old daughter were found dead under mysterious circumstances at their residence in Nangloi on Thursday. The Delhi Police have registered a case of dowry death and murder. Ironically, the day also happened to be Satyam’s birthday.

The victim’s family members alleged that her in-laws and husband had been harassing her for dowry and that they were behind the two deaths. One of them also claimed that her in-laws were not happy at her having given birth to a daughter.

Twenty-seven-year-old Satyam Yadav was the Councillor from Nangloi East ward (No.43) of the Municipal Corporation.

According to the police, Satyam, who was elected on Congress ticket in the municipal elections held in April this year, was last seen alive on Wednesday night. She along with her daughter Vanshika had gone to sleep on the second floor of their two-storey house around 11-30 p.m. Her husband Pawan Yadav stayed on the first floor as he was looking after his ailing mother, said the police.

“Around 8 a.m. on Thursday the family members knocked at the door of her room which was bolted from inside but there was no response. Later they managed to open the door and found Satyam hanging from the ceiling fan and her daughter Vanshika lying unconscious on the bed,” said a police officer.

A call was made to the Police Control Room around 8-30 a.m. The police claimed that the family rushed Vanshika to a nearby hospital where she was declared brought dead.

Satyam, who hailed from Bulandshahr district of Uttar Pradesh, had come to Delhi after marrying Pawan Yadav in February 2010.

Pawan is a school teacher and his father Lalaram Yadav is in politics. The couple had their first and only child, Vanshika, in 2011.

The police informed the area Sub-Divisional Magistrate about the incident following which inquest proceedings were initiated into the matter.

Satyam’s brother-in-law Sunil Yadav said that since her marriage Satyam was often humiliated for dowry by her husband and his parents. “They used to put pressure on Satyam and there were constant demands for dowry since her marriage. They often told her that Pawan had turned down marriage proposals from girls whose families were ready to pay more money as dowry,” said Sunil.

Sunil also said that Satyam, who had completed her post-graduation and B.Ed. thereafter, was never inclined to join politics and wanted to become a teacher instead and that she had even applied for a teaching job in Uttar Pradesh after her marriage.

“She was forced to contest the civic elections by her family as due to the ward being a reserved constituency (for women), her father-in-law could not. Her mother-in-law, who was the second choice candidate, had to pull out as some of her documents were not complete,” he said.

Satyam’s brother Prashant Singh, who is a school teacher in Delhi, said Pawan’s family were also unhappy with the fact that Satyam had given birth to a girl child as they wanted a son.

Neighbours said that despite being a public figure, Satyam was rarely seen outside her house and was not very active even during her election campaign. They, however, said that it never appeared to them that there were problems between the couple.

The police said that prima facie the cause of the mother-daughter death appears to be strangulation. Ligature marks were found round the necks of both.

Post-mortems have been conducted and the bodies would be taken to Satyam’s native place Bulandshahr for cremation.

A case has been registered under the sections related to dowry death and murder, said the police. Efforts are on to ascertain whether Satyam first strangled Vanshika and then hanged herself or if someone else murdered both.
