She then attacked the late All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam president’s ex-aid, VK Sasikala.

“We went to the police station to get a complaint registered but two police women pressured my daughter to change her statement, then beat her up,” the mother of the teen stated.

A 13-year-old Dalit girl was kept at a police station for a whole night, then beaten up when she tried to lodge a rape complaint in Madhya Pradesh’s Chhatarpur. Three police officers were suspended on Wednesday due to the incident which took place on August 30, a senior official confirmed.

Babu Khan, accused of raping the girl, was arrested on September 3 under relevant sections of the Indian Penal Code, Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes (Prevention of Atrocities) Act as well as Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POSCO) Act, police say.

City Kotwali police station house officer Anoop Yadav, Sub Inspector Mohini Sharma and Assistant-Sub Inspector Gurudutt Shesha were all suspended for locking the rape victim in the police station, Chhatarpur district superintendent of police, Sachin Sharma, told reporters.

Joint district Collector Pratap Singh Chauhan said that a complaint of rape was received from the district Child Welfare Committee following which, the case was registered.

According to the teen’s mother, the girl went out of the house on August 27 but did not return. Her father lodged a missing person complaint at the Kotwali police station the next day. On August 30, the girl returned, telling her parents that Babu Khan forcibly took her to his house, confined her and raped her for 3 days.

“We went to the police station to register a complaint. However, two policewomen put pressure on my daughter to change her statement. They beat her up. A police officer took me outside while my daughter was being kicked and beaten with belts inside,” she said.

The girl was kept at the station the whole night while her parents waited outside. On August 31, when they went back to the police station, asking inspector Yadav to register a case, they were driven out, the girl’s mother said.

Finally, on the evening of September 1 the police registered a case of rape against the accused but did not include charges on kidnapping, she said. Also in the First Information Report, the girl’s age has been written as 17 years, not mentioning the charge of kidnapping.

CWC member Afsar Jahan said that the police seems to be trying to save the culprit while forcing the victim to change her story. Saurabh Bhatnagar, another member, said that the Child Welfare Committee has asked police for documents after seeing that her age was written as 17 years instead of 13.

When a CWC team visited the girl’s house, inspector Yadav was there with the accused in handcuffs, Bhatnagar said, that as per law, a rape accused shouldn’t be brought near the victim. Besides, law also forbids male police officers from recording the statements of a woman rape victim, he added.
