    Writ Petition (Criminal) No. 138 of 2013

    HRLN has filed a petition of the Petitioner when her 15 year old daughter who was gang raped by three Persons in Haryana on 26th August 2013.The petition sought compensation and a directive for her rehabilitation.

    The petition highlighted the trauma of the girl and a large number of such rapes occurred in Haryana, the victims belonging to the backward classes. It said the brazenness and frequency of the crime indicated that in Haryana “there is a sense of impunity among certain male sections and a feeling that rape will go unpunished. There is a clear breakdown of the criminal justice system and complete denial of protection to women, especially those belonging to the Dalit class.”

    Senior counsel Colin Gonsalves, appearing for the Haryana victim’s father has said that the accused got the support of the police and the khap panchayat, and when the girl filed an FIR, she was socially boycotted and asked to leave her village.

    So, the Supreme Court issued notice to the Chief Secretaries of all the States and the administrators of the Union Territories, seeking their response in eight weeks on rehabilitation schemes for victims.
