NHRC Notifies Raj Government and DGP of Gangrape and Dalit Woman’s Murder

Officials said on Wednesday that the Rajasthan government and the state’s police chief have received letters from the NHRC over the alleged gangrape and murder of a Dalit lady in the Bikaner area.

The National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) said in a statement that the replies were requested within four weeks.

A 21-year-old Dalit woman was reportedly gangraped and murdered by three people, including two police officers, on June 20, according to a media report, which the NHRC has taken suo motu cognizance of.

The Commission has noted that, if accurate, the information in the media amounts to a breach of the victim’s human rights by those in charge of making sure that the public is safe and secure.

As a result, it said in a statement on Wednesday, it has sent letters to Rajasthan’s chief secretary and director general of police, asking for a thorough report within four weeks.

The police investigation’s current state, departmental actions against public employees, and the arrest of the third accused should all be included in the report. The Commission also requested information about any assistance provided by the government to the victim’s relatives.

The rights panel said that both cops had been suspended and that an investigation was underway, per a media report that was published on June 22.
