Two police officers, Constables Veer Pal Singh Yadav and Avnish Yadav, have gone on the run in India after allegedly abducting a 14-year-old girl and gang raping her at their police station on New Year’s eve.
The two policemen were initially suspended before absconding from the police station in Badaun, Uttar Pradesh. The mother of the girl claimed the men trialed the girl outside her house to where she went to respond to nature’s call and captured her. After she noticed something had gone wrong, she immediately notified the authorities but didnt get a favorable response.
It was only after them meeting the city’s superintendent of police and the incident receiving some media attention, that the complaint was taken seriously and a search for the officers was launched.
Uttar Pradesh chief minister Akhilesh Yadav has demanded all efforts now be made to arrest the officers and that serious disciplinary action be taken against them when caught.
