ac­cused, 32-year-old San­tosh Ku­mar, lost one hand after he was ab­ducted and chained to rail­way tracks in UP’s Ma­hoba dis­trict on Tues­day night. The crime came to light on Wed­nes­day. Sources said San­tosh was ac­cused of rap­ing a 13-year-old girl in his vil­lage on May 8. “When the girl’s mother lodged a com­plaint, po­lice reg­is­tered an FIR. San­tosh went un­der­ground fear­ing po­lice ac­tion,” said ASP Bansh Raj Singh Ya­dav. San­tosh told po­lice that the rape sur­vivor’s fa­ther, un­cle and an aide grabbed him from the out­skirts of the vil­lage and tied him to the rail tracks on Jhansi-Manikpur sec­tion. They chained his left hand to the track. Soon, a train ar­rived and sev­ered it,” the ASP said. “We have filed a case against the girl’s fa­ther, un­cle and one uniden­ti­fied per­son. They are all on the run,” said an of­fi­cer.
