One of the main accused in the Tikri rape case has admitted to have raped a Bengali woman twice — first in a train and then at the farmers’ protest site, the police have said.
The accused, Anil Malik, was arrested from Bhiwani on Tuesday, a month after the case was registered on the complaint of the victim’s father.
Malik also admitted to have made a video of the alleged crime.
Two other main accused — Anoop Chanaut and Ankush Sangwan — are still at large.
Malik, an ex-serviceman, ran an outfit Kisan Social Army. He had pitched a tent at the Tikri border in the name of his outfit.
Superintendent of Police Rajesh Duggal told the media, “During interrogation, Malik revealed that he had raped the woman in a train while returning to Tikri from West Bengal in the second week of April. He again raped her at Tikri and made a video. He also disclosed that Chanaut, too, raped the woman, while Sangwan molested her at Tikri. Co-accused Jagdish Barar knew about this, but he remained mum.”
The SP further said the video, which the accused used to blackmail the victim, had been recovered.
Malik was today produced before a local court, which remanded in three days’ police custody.
“The police are conducting searches to arrest Chanaut and Sangwan,” added the SP.
The 25-year-old woman from West Bengal came to Tikri on April 12. She died of Covid at a private hospital in Bahadurgarh on April 30.
