UP cop humiliates rape victim

A senior police officer not only humiliated but also used foul language against a rape victim in Deoria district of Uttar Pradesh (UP). The victim approached additional superintendent of police Keshav Chandra Goswami after local police station did not register her complaint. After hearing her plea, Goswami made an extremely insensitive comment that who would rape such an old woman after hearing that she is a mother of four and her eldest child is 15 years old. However, later the UP police not only apologized to the victim but also sought an explanation from the officer within two days. Meanwhile, slamming the UP police and state government, chairperson of the National Commission for Women Mamta Sharma demanded officer's immediate suspension.
