DUMKA/RANCHI: The Spanish woman, who was gang-raped in Dumka on Friday night, mentioned in the FIR that all the seven offenders took turns to commit the crime after raining kicks and punches on her. Throughout the crime, the rapists kept the hands of the survivor’s husband tied and also assaulted him. In her last social media video post on Saturday night, she said, “I thought they were going to kill me.Thank God I am still alive.”
Dumka police on Sunday evening officially announced the arrest of three culprits while raids to nab the remaining four were under way. While Jharkhand State Legal Services (JHALSA) took cognizance of the crime and pressed separate team for extending legal and other assistance to the survivor, the National Commission for Women (NCW) also took separate cognizance and sought a detailed report, expressing concern over law and order in Jharkhand.
Talking to reporters, Dumka SP Pitamber Singh Kherwar said all three arrested were sent to judicial custody on Sunday.
“All the accused belonged to Kunjo and adjoining villages under Hansdiha police station. As per the probe so far, all are first-time offenders but a detailed inquiry is under way,” the SP said.
The survivor, in her FIR, also mentioned that some of the offenders uttered a few English words while approaching them that night. Kherwar said, “A few of them might have gone to work outside as migrant workers and got acquainted with a few English words. Their educational and other backgrounds are being probed.”
The SP said that the woman’s statement was recorded before the court of first class judicial magistrate Sarthak Sharma. “We would prepare a watertight case against the accused to ensure severest punishment for them,” he said, adding that the medical examination of the woman has confirmed gang rape.
