Shahjahanpur (Uttar Pradesh) : Nearly 28 years after the neighbour’s minor daughter was gang-raped in Uttar Pradesh’s Shahjahanpur, two brothers have been booked for alleged rape.

For more than two years, from 1994 to 1996, the victim – who was just 12 years old at the time – was allegedly gang-raped by two brothers.

When the victim became pregnant and gave birth to a boy, she was forced to abandon her child, which was later adopted by a couple in Uttar Pradesh. The accused also threatened her for not registering the FIR.

The victim met her son in 2020 and she forced him to fight for justice and filed a complaint against the accused brothers.

Now, twenty-eight years after the incident, the police have established through a DNA test that one of the accused is indeed the father, further strengthening its case against the accused couple.

“We will take this fight to its logical conclusion and ensure justice for my mother, who has suffered a lot,” the victim’s son told reporters on condition of anonymity.
