Punjab gang rape: Accused at large; police officer suspended
All accused in the gang rape of a 20-year-old woman in Punjab’s Ludhiana district continued to be at large on Monday, two days after the horrific incident.
Deputy Inspector General (DIG) of Police Ranbir Singh Khatra admitted that there were lapses by the local police in dealing with the matter due to which such a gruesome crime took place on Saturday night. “Our main priority at this stage is to arrest the accused. There have been other incidents in the area by some gangs,” Khatra said.
Khatra said that Assistant Sub-Inspector Vijay Rattan had been suspended for dereliction of duty as he had failed to investigate the matter seriously and did not inform his seniors about it after the victims complained about the incident.…
