Shivraj Singh Chouhan orders immediate action against police officers after Dalit woman ends her life in MP

Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan on Friday directed to register a complaint against the police officer in Narsinghpur district for allegedly not registering a Dalit rape victim’s complaint for four days, following which the woman ended her life on Friday morning.

The Chief Minister directed to file a criminal case against the assistant sub-inspector (ASI) Mishrilal Kodape, the in-charge of the Gotitoriya police outpost in Gadarwara and also ordered to arrest the cop immediately. Chouhan also directed shunting of the Additional Superintendent of Police Rajesh Tiwari of Narsinghpur district, sub-divisional officer of police (SDOP) S R Yadav of Gadarwara and sought explanation from the Superintendent of Police Ajay Singh on the incident.

A 32-year old Dalit woman, who was allegedly raped by three men on September 28, ended her life by suicide in Madhya Pradesh’s Narsinghpur district after police allegedly refused to lodge her FIR about the crime. On September 30, the husband and brother-in-law of the woman were detained at the Gotitoriya police outpost.

Chouhan ordered the police to register an FIR immediately against the gang-rape accused and punished them as per the law. Tweeting about the incident, Madhya Pradesh CM said the crime against women would not be tolerated at any cost.  Rape accused are human devils who have no place in the society.

After the incident on Friday, an FIR was registered against the three accused, Arvind Choudhury, Parsu Choudhury and Anil Rai. According to the recently released data of National Crime Record Bareu, on rape in metropolitan cities alone, Madhya Pradesh had about 150 cases of rape registered in 2019.

Opposition leader Kamal Nath, criticising the Shivraj Chouhan-led BJP government in MP, said instead of punishing the rape accused, victim’s family was harassed after which the women ended her life. Is this the reality of Beti Padhao, Beti Bachao slogans of the BJP government?
