Kashmiri woman alleges rape by army men

Friday July 22, 2011 12:00:35 PM, IANS

Srinagar: Police in Jammu and Kashmir have registered a complaint of abduction and rape based on allegations by a woman against two army personnel.

Rukaya Bano, a woman in south Kashmir's Kulgam district, has alleged that two army men raped her after abducting her when she came out of her home Tuesday.

"She had gone out for ablutions at about 7 p.m. on July 19 and after that she did not return home. She came back July 21," her relatives told police.

They also said Rukaya had been forcibly detained by the two army men in a meadow hutment for two days.

"We have registered an FIR (First Information Report) based on allegations of abduction and rape by the women. The guilty, whosoever it may be, will be brought to book," said a senior police officer here.

Massive protests broke out in the area following the woman's allegations. Minister of State for Home Nasir Aslam Wani and Director General of Police (DGP) Kuldeep Khoda visited the area Thursday when the statement of the woman was recorded in Damhal Hanjipora police station there.

Valley-wide protests had erupted in 2009 when two women drowned in a local stream in the adjacent Shopian district. Massive protests and allegations that the duo had been raped and murdered by security men had paralyzed the valley the entire summer of 2009. The CBI probe finally revealed that the duo had drowned and no rape or murder had taken place.
