Police Officer Helped Rapist Son Evade the Law for 7 Years!
Bitti Mohanty was sentenced to years to 7 years in jail in 2006 for raping a 26-year-old German woman in Alwar in the state of Rajathan.
With the help of his father, who was a Director General of Police, Bitti jumped parole and escaped, and remained in the hiding for the last 7 years. After jumping parole in 2006, Bitti obtained an MBA degree and started working in a bank as a probationary officer.
Bitti’s cover was blown when the employees of the bank branch at Pazhayangadi where he worked grew suspicious of his real identity on seeing his photo among pictures of accused in various sex crimes shown by TV channels and those floated on the internet in the wake of the Delhi gang-rape incident.
Bitti was picked up from his local residence on Friday evening and during interrogation revealed his true identity after initially trying to mislead the police. Soon after however, he withdrew his admission, as his father also refused having helped him escape and even refused to identify him!
The question is, will the system of police and dirty politics help Bitti evade the law yet again! And if senior police officers are raising and protecting the country’s rapists what hope is there for women in India?
