Bride Trafficking : Woman gang raped and sold, 2 year old son brutally murdered
A 27-year-old woman from Maharashtra was gang raped and her son brutally murdered by three men in Haryana's Rewari district on Thursday.
The woman's ordeal did not end there as she was later sold off to a man for 40,000 at Alwar in neighbouring Rajasthan.
"The woman was spotted with her two-year-old child at the Rewari railway station on December 9 by a truck driver, Mukesh Kumar. The truck driver lured her by promising to marry her and take them to Khajuri village in the Bawal industrial zone," SP of Rewari, Nazneen Bhasin said.
Kumar then handed over the woman and her child under the custody of his friend Satish Kumar before leaving with his truck. Satish, however, had other plans. Satish sent his family to Rewari on December 11 before he called his friends Hawa Singh and Jaipal Singh to his Khajuri residence. The trio gang raped the woman in an inebriated state in the evening.
More horror was to follow when one of the three men smashed the child to death, fearing his cries would alert the villagers staying near the house. Later, the trio had stuffed the child's body inside a bag to dispose it at a deserted spot.
While Jaipal stayed back at Khajuri village, Satish and Hawa Singh forcibly took the woman to Alwar the next day, where they sold her to a local, identified as Sandeep Kumar, for 40,000. A middleman, Suraj Bhan, helped Satish and Hawa Singh strike the deal with Sandeep.
"We were alerted about the incident by the Khajuri sarpanch. The village chief had become suspicious as Satish went missing without any word. By that time, Satish Kumar and Hawa Singh had taken the victim to Alwar district. Jaipal Singh's arrest at Khajuri village led to the arrest of Sandeep Kumar, Hawa Singh, Satish Kumar and Suraj Bhan from Nangli village on Saturday," the Superintendent of Police said.
The police rescued the victim from the house of Sandeep Kumar in Nangli village while the child's body was recovered from Satish's house in Khajuri village. Jaipal was unable to dispose off the body as he was left alone by his accomplices.
A manhunt has been launched to the sixth accused, Mukesh Kumar, who had handed over the victim and her son to Satish.
The Rewari Police has booked Satish Kumar, Hawa Singh and Jaipal Singh for gang rape and murder while Mukesh Kumar, Suraj Bhan and Sandeep Kumar were booked under the IPC sections relating to kidnapping and human trade at the Bawal police station.
