India policemen abscond after allegedly raping 14-year-old girl

Two policemen are on the run after allegedly raping a 14-year-old girl in northern India. The constables are accused of abducting the girl from her village on Thursday.

According to Press Trust of India (PTI), the incident took place the Badaun district, in Uttar Pradesh state – the same district where two cousins aged 14 and 16 were found hanged from a mango tree in May. Five months later, federal investigators concluded that the girls had “committed suicide” and were not gang-raped and murdered as previously thought.

According to Superintendent Lallan Singh, a search for the two missing men has been launched after the girl’s mother filed a complaint that the policemen took her daughter to the police station in a car and raped her in a room in the station premises.
