Bareilly: While the Uttar Pradesh government is renaming cities, law and order is deteriorating in the state. Adding to the already abysmal situation of crimes against women, a fresh incident has taken place in Nawabganj, Bareilly district. Deepak, the 27-year-old son of Om Prakash, a policeman stationed in Sambhal, allegedly sexually assaulted a Dalit woman and threw acid on her and her neighbourhood friends.
The survivor said, “Taking a break from working in the fields, I went to drink water nearby when Deepak came from behind, pulled my hair and tore open my blouse. He hit me on my chest and tried to violate my dignity.” Her two sons, aged 10 and 12, ran to their mother’s rescue and were said to have been physically assaulted by Deepak. The younger son managed to escape and ran to call his mother's friends from a nearby area.
