Bulandshahr gangrape: Doctors thought we were lying, say victims

The 35-year-old rape survivor in the horrific gangrape case of Bulandshahr has alleged that the doctor who treated her and her 14-year-old daughter was insensitive.

The woman and her daughter were gang-raped for about three hours by a group of five men who dragged them out of their car near a highway in Uttar Pradesh's Bulandshahr district on Friday night.

"I had bruises all over. My daughter was bleeding but the doctor didn't believe us. She said we were lying about her condition," NDTV quoted the 35-year-old rape survivor as saying.

The channel's report suggest that the traumatised teenager was allegedly asked to just "sit quietly in a corner".

The police also failed to provide adequate help, the family alleged.

According to the report, the teenager's father, who is a cab driver, had called the police helpline number more than a dozen times but either it was busy or there was no response from their end.

The cab driver's brother said, "It took us hours to convince cops to send a team. When they finally came we had to beg them to register our case, they didn't believe us."

The family has threatened to commit suicide if the culprits are not nabbed.
