India rape victim alleges police asked her about ‘pleasure’



India : A woman in the south Indian state of Kerala has alleged that police asked her lewd questions when she tried reporting that she had been gang raped.

She said an officer loudly asked her which man “gave her the most pleasure” and which “size she liked best” when she told them she had been assaulted two years ago by a group of men.

The unidentified woman says the “brutal treatment” forced her to withdraw her complaint against her attackers.

The police have denied the allegations.

The woman, a mother of two, said one of her attackers was an influential local politician who had told her to withdraw her complaint or “face the consequences”.

“They told me they would kill my children so I took back the complaint,” she said, adding that the “humiliation” she suffered at the police station was even worse than the rape itself.
