Muzaffarnagar (UP): A 23-year-old woman was allegedly abducted and raped by two men here last month, police said on Monday, adding that the accused had also recorded a video of their act and uploaded it on the social media.
A case in this connection was lodged only on Sunday, the police said, adding that the accused were arrested.
According to a complaint lodged by the victim’s brother, two men — Akib and Sajid — abducted his sister, intoxicated her and then took turns to rape her last month, Circle Officer Harish Bhadoria said.
He added that a medical examination of the victim had proved rape.
The woman had not narrated her ordeal to anyone as the accused had threatened her with dire consequences, Bhadoria said, adding that her family members got to know about it only after the video went viral on the social media. (PTI)
The Centre is considering linking Aadhaar with driving licences to tackle the problem of duplicate and fraudulent documents, law minister Ravi Shankar Prasad said on Sunday.
“We are soon going to bring a law which will make it mandatory to link Aadhaar with driving licences. At present, what happens is that the guilty person who causes an accident flees the scene and gets a duplicate licence. This helps him go scot-free.
However, with the Aadhaar linkage you can change your name but you cannot change your biometrics, neither iris nor fingerprints. So the moment you go in for a duplicate licence, the system will say this person already has a driving licence and should not be given a new one,” said Prasad.
