Rape Haryana

New Delhi: The National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) on Wednesday issued notice to the Haryana government over the gang-rape of a girl by persons who had gang-raped her three years ago.

Taking cognizance of media reports on the issue, the commission observed that two of the five men, who were out on bail in the earlier case of gang-rape, were pressurising the victim`s family for an out-of-court settlement, but the girl`s family was refusing to accede to the demand.

They allegedly abducted the 21-year-old victim from near her college, where she is pursing Master`s degree, and again sexually assaulted her. She was left to die in an unconscious state and was spotted by a passerby and taken to a hospital.
