New Delhi: Amidst strong protests over the rape and brutality meted out to a five-year-old girl here, Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde on Monday tabled a statement in both the houses of Parliament related to the horrific case.
In a bid to assuage the raging protests, Shinde said rapes are taking place not just in Delhi but across India.
Making a suo motu statement in the Lok Sabha earlier in the day, Shinde had said an inquiry has been ordered into the lapses on part of police to investigate the disappearance of the five-year-old girl and attempt to hush up the matter.
Shinde gave details of the incident in Gandhi Nagar area of East Delhi on April 15 and the investigations conducted so far.
He said the Station House Officer (SHO) and the Investigating Officer (IO) have been placed under suspension taking note of the lapses in the investigation.
“The Joint CP (Vigilance) has been asked to conduct an inquiry. The Jt CP (Vigilance) shall also enquire into the allegation that the local police paid some money to the father of the victim to hush up the case,” Shinde said in the statement which was laid in the House.
The victim’s parents had alleged that some police personnel had offered them Rs 2,000 and told them to keep quiet over the issue.
