Rights panel to probe girl's murder in police station

The National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) will send a team to investigate the alleged rape and killing of a minor girl in the compound of a police station in Uttar Pradesh, an official said Sunday.  

New Delhi: As the Uttar Pradesh government ordered a probe into the alleged rape and murder of a 14-year-old girl in a police station, the National Commission for Protection of Child Rights (NCPCR) said all the personnel present in the police station should be arrested.

"It is totally unacceptable that the incident happened in a police station. It is important that the police (personnel present at time of the incident) are arrested immediately and an FIR registered," NCPCR director Shanta Sinha told reporters.

"I must say all the police who were in the police station at that time need to be arrested," she said.

Sinha added: "It (first information report) should be based on the fact that the child's body was found in police station, it could not have been done without the collusion and connivance of the police," she said.

She said the inquiry should be led by a senior woman police officer who would probe the case with "with a sense of fairness and neutrality".

Probe ordered

Chief Minister Mayawati has ordered a police probe into the alleged rape and murder of a 14-year-old girl who was found hanging from a tree inside a police station compound in Uttar Pradesh. Criminal cases have been registered against three policemen.

Mayawati late Sunday also ordered a second autopsy of the victim's body after allegations that the earlier post-mortem report was doctored by policemen who called it a case of "suicide".

"The case has been handed over to the crime branch of the crime investigation department (CID) and they have been asked to submit their report within a week's time," divisional commissioner Prashant Trivedi told reporters in Lakhimpur-Kheri Monday.

The victim's body was found hanging at the Nighasan police station in Lakhimpur-Kheri district, 130 km from Lucknow, Friday night. She was residing in hutmets raised in one corner of the police station compound where her father was engaged as a construction labourer.

Eleven policemen were suspended for their prima facie "dereliction of duty". Now criminal cases have been registered against a sub-inspector and two constables for "destruction of evidence".

The Mayawati administration has come under fire from different political quarters, specially as the girl's father, Intezar Ali, has pointedly accused policemen of having gangraped and murdered the girl.
