Rajasthan Dholpur Gangrape Case:
According to the reports, a 26-year-old Dalit woman was recently gangraped in front of her children in Rajasthan's Dholpur district. The woman said in her complaint that she was returning home from an agricultural field with her husband and children earlier this week. The family was halted by six men who thrashed them. The accused left after reportedly hitting the complainant's spouse in the head with the butt of a revolver. The accused then sexually attacked the woman in front of her children, despite the fact that the woman had previously accused the same individuals of molesting her.
Reportedly, a FIR was filed at the Kanchanpur police station in Dholpur district's Bari tehsil. The accused were charged under the Indian Penal Code and the Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes (Prevention of Atrocities) Act.
The NCW has also asked for a time limit on the investigation and security for the survivor. According to the commission, every action taken must be reported to the commission within seven days.
