Recently, a heartbreaking video of a teenage girl from UP went viral on social media. In this video, she alleged that an inspector of the Govind Nagar police station asked her to dance in order to file a complaint against her molester.
According to sources, the 16-year-old shared that the Inspector not only summoned her to the police station at an odd time but also asked her to dance in front of him.
The girl and her family live in rented accommodation and earns a livelihood by doing “Jagran” parties. A few days ago, they had tried to lodge a complaint against the nephew of their landlord for molesting their daughter, besides forcibly evacuating them from the rented portion of the house.
The mother of the girl mentioned that on July 26 the accused Anup Yadav, nephew of the landlady, forcibly entered into their house and attacked them. Further sharing the details, she told reporters:
“Again, on August 7 night, my daughter was molested by him while she was on her way back home from the market. It was when she approached Inspector Govind Nagar, Anurag Mishra, he asked my daughter to first dance in front him and then he will register her complaint,”
The Govind Nagar Circle Officer Vikas Kumar Pandey has refuted the allegations. He said that there was already a dispute between the two sides with regard to the possession of a house. Pandey further added:
“There seems to be no substance in the charges. Prima facie it appears that the girl has made the video viral in order to create pressure on the police. However, a probe is underway in this regard.”
Though the investigation is still on, no one would deny the increasing rate of crime against women in India. Recently, how a 6-year-old was brutally abused after her private parts being mutilated in Uttar Pradesh.
It is heartbreaking how we are failing our daughters every passing day.
