2 men posing as Cops gang rape a woman in Tamil Nadu

A young woman was allegedly raped by two men claiming to be policemen in Sivaganga district of Tamil Nadu.

Police report that the woman was in the company of a male friend in a forest area near Karaikudi.

The two men, who claimed themselves to be policemen, said that their senior officer had to make an enquiry and took her away on a motorcycle. After assaulting her sexually, they dropped her back to the bus stand at 4.30 am.


The woman has been admitted in the hospital. She has been medically examined and the reports confirm that she has been raped.

District police had launched a combing operation at night after her male friend alerted the night patrol police, and no arrests have been made. “We are continuing our combing operation. We have some leads,” said a police officer.

A similar incident happened in Chennai last year, where a college student was raped by a man posing as policeman.
