Rohtak (Haryana), July 19 (ANI): Rohtak Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) and supervising officer in the second gang-rape case, Pushpa Khatri, on Tuesday said the case is being investigated under various sections of IPC and SC/ST (Prevention of Atrocities) act. Khatri said out of the five accused three are being interrogated and the contradictory facts being verified. "Out of five accused we are interrogating three of them. Family members of the accused have given some CCTV footage. So, some contradictions are coming up and we are verifying them. The case was first registered in Bhiwani before and now that it is under our jurisdiction and we are taking it very seriously. We also saw the old files. Two of them were earlier arrested with the previous gang rape case," she told ANI here. "We tried to talk to victim but she is not in the state to give statement. In first statement we didn't come to know about the castes of the accused. This case is being investigated under various sections of IPC and SC/ST act," she added. The Dalit girl, who was gang-raped three years ago in Bhiwani by five men, had alleged that she was kidnapped and raped again by the same men in Rohtak on Wednesday last week when she was returning home from college. Based on her complaint, police registered an FIR against Amit, Jagmohan, Mausam, Sandeep and Akash. While Amit and Jagmohan joined the investigation on Monday, families of Mausam and Sandeep approached the police with the evidence. (ANI)
