Rewari gangrape accused destroyed proof: Villagers
After committing the crime, the accused in the Rewari gangrape case came back to the crime spot, a tubewell in Naya Gaon village, on the night of September 13 and destroyed evidence before escaping, said one of the villagers close to the victim’s family.
“The tubewell is located in the fields outside the village. Some people residing near the fields noticed unusual movement at the tubewell that night. Deendayal is the tube well owner and friend of Nishu, one of the three accused. Since he has a criminal bent of mind, no villager dares to speak openly against him,” said a villager on the condition of anonymity.
Victim’s uncle Ram Avtar maintained the accused were seen roaming in the village around midnight on September 13 and hatched a plot of escaping together at the tubewell.
“The accused destroyed evidence after the crime as they had sufficient time. The room at the tubewell was clean and bedsheet missing when we and other villagers visited the spot on September 14,” he said. He claimed that the accused went missing on September 14 when the incident hit the headlines.
Another villager close to the victim’s father said a registered medical practitioner (RMP) in the village first learnt about the crime and informed him when they met by chance near his shop in the village.
“Nishu had called the RMP to the spot by pretending that his friend was vomiting and needed immediate medical aid. The RMP was shocked to spot the victim lying unconscious in a room at the tubewell. He is an acquaintance of the victim’s father,” said the villager.
He later informed the victim’s father, employed in a private school at Kanina town in Mahendragarh. He maintained that the victim’s father immediately rushed to the village, but the accused had taken her to another place by then.
He said the accused had reportedly contacted another RMP in Bahala village nearby, who refused to treat her in view of her critical condition. Thereafter, the accused reportedly took her to Kanina and one of them called up her father to inform him about her critical condition, the villager added.
Nuh SP Nazneen Bhasin, chief of the SIT formed to investigate the case, denied having any information about the destruction of evidence.
