An administrative inquiry has been initiated against a police station in-charge in Alwar for distorting facts in the case of rape of a 15-year-old girl to shield the accused.

The victim’s mother had approached a local court here on Friday seeking permission to get an abortion done on her daughter who was allegedly kidnapped and kept hostage by the accused for two months.

The mother alleged that the one Satpal lured her daughter to run away with him in September last year and later raped her.

The police allegedly distorted the case to save the accused and showed in their records that the girl was recovered from a gurdwara after she went missing. They did not conduct a medical examination on her. As a result, her pregnancy went unnoticed.

An inquiry has been ordered against Alwar women police station in-charge Mohan Lal. “We have recorded the statement of the mother and her daughter again,” circle officer (city) Narendra Mohan Sharma told TOI on Monday.

Sources said in her statement on Monday, the girl accused Satpal of rape on the pretext of marrying her. She alleged that the accused kept her with him for two months and raped her several times, following which she conceived.

The victim’s mother had earlier alleged that she was getting threats from the accused and had filed an application in the local court requesting her daughter to be sent to a shelter home in Jaipur. Later, at the woman’s request, the girl was again handed over to her on January 30.

However, recently the girl’s mother came to know that the minor was pregnant.

The plea for abortion came up for hearing on Monday, but the court deferred the decision to Tuesday.
