India, Haryana: Today, a woman registered a case of gang rape against seven people, including her brother-in-law, in connection with the incident, days after allegations of rape and molestation by Jat quota agitators near Haryana’s Murthal. Haryana Police, DIG, Rajshree Singh told, “An FIR has been lodged against seven persons in connection with a gang rape on the basis of a complaint filed by a Narela-based woman today”.

The officer, who heads a three member team of women police officers constituted by the Haryana government to go into alleged incidents of rape and molestation of several women by Jat protesters, however, said a family dispute could be the reason behind the woman filing the complaint.

The woman, however, said her 15 year old daughter who was accompanying her, was not raped but her clothes were torn. The DIG said the woman had called her up Yesterday and her statement was recorded a day later.
