A rape survivor from Sonipat alleged that the police were not arresting the accused, as he is the father of a Haryana police inspector.

According to the victim’s complaint to the Commission Chairman, Justice SK Mittal, the accused, named Karan Singh, is the father of a Haryana Police cop and due to the latter’s influence, the Sonipat Women Police Station SHO has not launched investigations or arrested the accused, the report adds.
