Alwar: While the nation was still trying to deal with the atrocious gangrape of a Dalit woman in Alwar, there was another dreadful incident in the same city, this time at a government hospital. Reportedly, a Dalit woman was raped by two men at Alwar’s Kathoomar hospital on May 7.

Kathoomar’s Sub-Inspector Uday Bhavan said, “A woman registered a case with us saying she was raped on May 7 by a man named Ram Nivas at the Kathoomar hospital, while another man, Giriraj Prasad, aided him.”

The victim had come to the hospital on May 5 for the delivery of her daughter-in-law. On May 7, Prasad, a compounder, took the victim to the delivery room at 08.00 pm on the pretext of signing some documents where Ram Nivas was already present. “Ram Nivas raped her while Giriraj Prasad held her hands and shut her mouth,” said Bhavan.

An FIR has been lodged against the accused, however, no arrests have been made so far. The Rajasthan police had been accused of inaction in the gangrape case as well. It later managed to arrest all the five accused.

Such barbaric incidents clearly reflect the condition of women in our nation even today, especially of those belonging to the marginalized communities.
