The case was registered at Ahmedpur East Saddar police station against two men for raping her.

    She further told that the police officer summoned her on February 12th and claimed it was in connection with her case as he wanted to record her witness statement.

    The City police had registered a rape case against the ASI but did not arrest him till the filing of this report. It is a horrifying case of its nature. The cases of rape and sexual assault are already not reported due to the stigma attached to them. However, even the police conduct in this regard pushes the victims back in their shells.
