Kanpur: The investigation committee formed by the district authorities of Kanpur Dehat has found SHO Rajpur Vinod Kumar guilty in the incident wherein, a teenager girl hailing from Jainpur area of the district attempted suicide by consuming poison after police questioning on Monday. The committee has submitted its report to the DM JP Singh and SP Keshav Kumar Chaudhary. The girl is under treatment at Lala Lajpat Rai Hospital.
On the orders of the SP, a case was registered against the suspended SHO at Rajpur police station under the sections of POCSO Act, assault and intimidation. The girl had allegedly attempted suicide after being summoned by the Rajpur police regarding a complaint lodged by an army personnel of Jalaun’s Churkhi area. In the complaint, the personnel had accused the girl of making his wife’s objectionable pictures and her phone number viral on social media.
However, the girl’s mother alleged that her daughter was harassed by the SHO on the pretext of questioning and said there were scratch marks on the girl’s body suggesting that she was physically tortured.
Following the preliminary investigation, SP Keshav Kumar Chaudhary had suspended the SHO on Wednesday and a committee consisting of Rasoolabad SDM Anju Verma and CO Line Tanu Upadhyay was formed for the probe.
SP Keshav Kumar Chaudhary said that a case has been registered against the suspended SHO. “Action will be taken on the basis of the inquiry report,” SP added.
