Ranchi: A 19-year-old girl being treated for consuming poison at a private hospital here revealed to the police on Friday that she tried to commit suicide after being gang-raped on a running train barely half an hour before the train reached Ranchi station on the night of February 6.
The girl's sensational disclosures prompted chief minister Raghubar Das to express his concern on his twitter handle on Friday midnight and the railway police to form a Special Investigation Team (SIT) to probe into it.
Now recovering at Gurunanak Hospital, the girl from Punjab
who was travelling to Ranchi from Delhi, told the police on Friday the crime took place on Jharkhand Swarna Jayanti Express (12818). The case came to light late because Gurunanak Hospital authorities called in the police only when the girl regained consciousness. When Chutia police - under whose area Gurunanak Hospital falls - understood from the girl's broken sentences that she attempted suicide after she was raped on the train on a deserted sleeper bogey, its OC Anil Kumar Karn informed the GRP.
Additional director-general (Jharkhand GRP) Ajay Kumar Singh said on Saturday morning that SIT was headed by Jamshedpur railway police SP Sangeeta Kumari. "The victim's statement has been recorded for initial investigation. Once her condition stabilises we will question her again," he said.
So far, it is known that the girl was allegedly raped on February 6 might for 25 minutes in a sleeper bogey S3 that she said had no other passenger, no security guard and no light. She was admitted to the hospital on February 8 after she consumed poison.
"Hospital authorities informed police after she regained consciousness. Initially, I assumed it was a suicide bid due to personal reasons. But when the girl said she consumed poison because she was raped on train, I realised it was a serious matter related to GRP," Karn told this paper.
The OC of GRP (Ranchi railway station) R.N. Thakur said the girl was not able to speak much. "On her elbow she had written she was gang-raped," he said. "The train on February 6 reached Ranchi at 11.50pm, after which she left for a local missionary at Namkum where she is receiving training in some trade. Based on her sequence of events, we believe that the crime could have taken place somewhere between Gangaghat and Tatisilwai railway stations. On February 8, she attempted suicide," Thakur said.
SP Sangeeta Kumari she said an in-depth probe was required to join many dots. "This is a heinous crime and we are trying to establish identity of accused. But the girl's health and mental condition are our top concerns. We are procuring details of passengers, how many alighted at Ranchi station, and who the coach attendants were," she said.
DRM of Ranchi railway division Vijay Kumar Gupta said that they would also review the security of Swarna Jayanti Express that runs without security escort. "There is no security on board this train. Though its scheduled arrival time at Ranchi is 4.15pm, it runs late by many hours and reaches at night. On Monday, I will hold a review meeting on its security. On the matter of the bogey being dark, I will order an inquiry," said Gupta
