    Indian woman: Cops raped me


    AN INDIAN woman said yesterday she was gang-raped by four officers at a police station, the latest in a string of shocking sex attacks in the state of Uttar Pradesh.

    The woman said she had gone to the station overnight on Monday in the state's Hamirpur district to seek her husband's release when she was attacked.

    "At 11.30pm, when there was no one in the room, the sub-inspector took me to his room and raped me inside the police station," the woman told CNN-IBN.

    She filed a complaint with a senior officer on Wednesday over the attack, which allegedly occurred when she refused to pay a bribe to secure the release of her husband.

    Late last month, two young girls were gang-raped and killed in their village, after going into a field to relieve themselves at night because they did not have a toilet at home. Their families claimed that the police did not take action because the girls were from a low caste.
