Kochi: Crucial evidence has come out in the case of the Delhi couple who alleged that the police demanded Rs 5 lakhs from them for releasing their daughters who went missing after falling prey to cybercriminals.
The police had trapped all five of the couple’s children in various cases. The two girls said that their brothers had not raped them and that they had not raised such a complaint anywhere. They are waiting to see their brothers who have come out on bail.
The police found the girls who had left their house and arrested one of the men who raped the girl. The police started brainwashing the girls while they were being brought to Kochi. They told the girls that their parents had abandoned them and that one of the sisters should marry her rapist. The police also instructed them to raise allegations that their brothers had assaulted them.
When the girls agreed, the brothers were charged with case for raping their sister. Thus three brothers including a ninth standard student were named accused in the rape case. Two of them were later arrested. The girl who was raped and her younger sister were lodged in a shelter home.
The police told the girls that they only had to say that their brothers had attacked them. But the police fabricated many stories and alleged that the girls were sexually attacked by their brothers starting from 2016. Police also made them sign the copy claiming that it had been read out loud.
The police then demanded Rs 5 lakhs from the parents, Rs 1 lakh for each of their children to drop all cases against them. When the parents could not give the money, four of their children were sent to jail and one of them became the accused in the case.
The police also told the girl that there was a medical report showing that she was pregnant. The girl was mentally devastated upon hearing this. The police brought the girl and the accused by seating them together on the same train.
The girls revealed that the police told them that their parents were angry and that it was unsafe to return to their home and that it was ideal to live in a care home until things fell back into place at their house. Meanwhile, the girl got her periods upon reaching Kochi. With this, the police statement about her pregnancy came out as false.
The girls said that they realised the snare that the police had set for them when they couldn’t come out of the care home. They heard about their brothers’ imprisonment only after a while. The girls are questioning why their brothers haven’t returned home even after being released from jail.
