Caste (Jats) continue rape Hariyana !
At a time when the state is facing severe criticism for crime against women, a panchayat in the state has reportedly offered money to the family of one of the victims to shield the accused.
The father of a 13-year-old victim, who was allegedly raped by a 62-year-old food vendor for four months, alleges that the sarpanch of Khai village, near the Punjab border, allegedly tried to cover up the crime because the accused belonged to his community. The accused allegedly used to lure the teen with fruits and then rape her outside her school in Fatehabad.
According to reports, the family rejected panchayat’s offer of Rs. 35,000 and reported the case to the police. The father of the victim said, “I want the accused to be hanged to death. The Sarpanch has been pressurising me to let go of the matter because that man is from his caste. He gave me Rs. 35,000. But I want justice.”
