Assam police announce reward for info on culprits in sexual abuse video
Assam police have promised a reward on Thursday, May 27, for anyone who could provide information about the culprits in a video, where a woman and four men were seen sexually abusing a girl.
Although the Assam Police said in a tweet that “the time or place of this incident is not clear” but they added that the department will take steps to proactively look for the culprits and try to locate if the incident took place in Assam.
Many concerned citizens took to the internet stating that the girl in the video was Lovikali Sumi from Nagaland, who had recently committed suicide in Jodhpur, Rajasthan.
However, Union Minister Kiren Rijiju said the video “is not related to Jodhpur suicide case.”
“I had a detailed discussion with the Police Commissioner of Jodhpur. However, there must be all-out efforts by all state police to catch the devils,” he said.
Special Commissioner of Delhi Police Robin Hibu also said that the police are trying to identify the culprits and added that task forces are working on the same.
Meanwhile, the Kaur Movement Foundation, an organisation that works with survivors of sexual and domestic abuse, announced a reward of two lakh rupees for information on the culprits in the video.
