Kanpur: Widow ends life after cop she accused of rape dies | Kanpur News


KANPUR: A widow, who had accused a constable of raping her over the pretext of marriage, hanged herself at her rented accommodation after the accused died in a road accident two days ago.
“The woman, a native of Dibiyapur, was married to a native of Etawah. After her husband’s death, she returned to her parents’ house in Auraiya. She lived in a rented accommodation in Brahmnagar locality where she came in contact with constable Jitendra, a native of Fatehpur. Jitendra was posted at Devkali police outpost of Auraiya,” said the police, adding, “She had alleged that she was repeatedly raped by the constable on the pretext of marriage and had lodged a complaint at Dibiyapur police station after Jitendra refused to marry her. The constable was suspended thereafter.”
“On November 4, the constable was going to his hometown on a two-wheeler when he got injured in an accident and died during treatment at Lala Lajpat Rai hospital on November 9,” informed police.
Locals said that on hearing some commotion from the woman’s house, they rushed there and found her hanging from the door frame of her house. On being alerted, the local police rushed to the spot and shifted the body to the district hospital. The woman’s family arrived at the hospital to claim her body.
“Preliminary investigation suggested that the woman had died by suicide. She had scribbled a love message on her hand saying, ‘Jitendra meri jaan…….’, and had also left a suicide note stating that she loved Jitendra and could not live without him. She had also written her name next to the constable’s with mehendi on her palms. We are awaiting for the postmortem report after which investigation will be initiated,” said CO (city) Surendra Nath.
(The victim’s identity has not been revealed to protect her privacy as per Supreme court directives on cases related to sexual assault)
