Aligarh, Uttar Pradesh: Alleging the police for their failing to lodge an FIR, a woman carried piece of a severed ear as evidence of being gang-raped.

On Thursday, she walked into the Aligarh Senior Superintendent of Police’s office, as police did not register an FIR in her gangrape complaint. She also complained that the police had not taken any action since two days, reported Hindustan Times.

The woman then produced a disfigured bit of the cartilage before Superintendent of Police (rural) Yashveer Singh, as the senior official was not present. She added the police collected some information, and also they completed a few formalities but did not file the FIR.

Singh ordered filing two FIRs – lodged by both the parties involved – in this case.

The woman informed HT that while she was sleeping with her children on Monday night, four people of her neighbourhood entered her residence and gang-raped her. Her husband, who was sleeping in a makeshift room outside the house was also assaulted when he tried to rescue the victim.

In an attempt to take a measure, the woman bit off a suspect’s ear. The assaulters also threatened the couple of dire consequences if they revealed any information about the incident.

Four out of the five suspects have been arrested in the attempted gangrape case.
