Soldier among 3 wanted in Haryana gangrape case
HISAR:Haryana police launched a hunt for three men, among them an army personnel, for the alleged rape of 20-year-old woman last week, officials said on Saturday.
Haryana director general of police (DGP) BS Sandhu said a police team had been sent to Rajasthan, where the army man believed to be the main accused is posted. “The other two accused will also be arrested soon,” he said. The DGP said senior officials will also investigate if there was any negligence on part of the police in responding to the case. The police also released photographs and names of the three accused —Pankaj, Manish and Nishu.
In her complaint, the woman said Pankaj and Manish drugged her and took her near a well in a car where she recognised Nishu after gaining consciousness. She was allegedly drugged again and gangraped. “Medical reports confirm rape but how many committed the crime is a matter of investigation. Samples have been sent to the forensic lab,” said Nuh police superintendent Nazneen Bhasin, who is leading a special probe team.
