As the Bharatiya Janata Party is all set to rake up the rape and suicide case of Ghatampur Dalit girl, the police arrested the accused and suspended two police personnel who had refused to lodge an FIR in the case.
Seventeen-year-old Vandana committed suicide on September 3 following the police refusal to lodge a rape complaint by her father.
According to Kanpur DIG Prem Prakash, the accused Sunil Singh Bhadoria was arrested in Saadh area on Wednesday morning and the police were also looking for his parents who have been named accomplice in the crime.
Ghatampur Station Officer Kalu Ram Dohrey and Constable Virendra Singh were suspended on Tuesday evening after an inquiry revealed they had tried to persuade Vandana’s family to make a compromise with Bhadoria’s family, said Prakash. He said a departmental inquiry has been initiated against them.
