Rape-PTI-L “The FIR in the case did not have sections of POCSO act. We had pointed it out to them. NCW members asked them why the FIR had no sections of POCSO Act, but no police official gave them a concrete answer,” she said.

The NCW today summoned a doctor who conducted medical examination of the minor victim in the Bulandshahr gangrape case for allegedly ill-treating her and asking “awkward” questions and also slammed police for not including sections of POCSO Act in the FIR.

National Commission of Women Chairperson Kumarmangalam said that the family had told the NCW team, which met the victims in Bulandshahr, that when the girl was taken for a medical examination, “she was abused by the doctor, who asked her a number of awkward questions and berated her”.

“The FIR in the case did not have sections of POCSO act. We had pointed it out to them. NCW members asked them why the FIR had no sections of POCSO Act, but no police official gave them a concrete answer,” she said.

Despite being pointed out, the police is yet to include sections of POCSO act in the FIR, she said.

DIG Meerut Range Laxmi Singh told PTI POCSO Act has not yet been added in the FIR.

Kumarmangalam said the NCW members were counselling the victims, as they were traumatised and had not been offered any such assistance by the UP Police.

“Both the minor girl and her mother are severely traumatised. The police has not offered them any counselling, either clinical or psychiatric.”

NCW also alleged that the police initially did not allow their team to meet the two gangrape survivors.

“We were to meet the victims in Noida but as soon as the police came to know about our plans they whisked them away to Bulandshahr. When our team reached Bulandshahr, for an hour they did not allow our members to meet them. We had to remind them that what they were doing was illegal,” she added.

Three persons have been arrested in the case.

The gangrape occurred when the victims’ car was stopped on NH91 by a group of dacoits when they were on their way to Shahjahanpur on Friday night. The women were dragged to a nearby field and gangraped while the family was robbed at gunpoint.
