Correction: Cops held for 16-yr-old’s rape not charged yet

The three police officers who were arrested over the rape of a 16-year-old girl have not yet been charged.

Police said the three, who were arrested two weeks ago, have not been charged, even after the girl identified them during an identification parade over the weekend.

In another incident, a 15-year-old girl accompanied by her parents made a report to the Rio Claro Police Station on Friday that her neighbour had raped her.

In the interview, she told police her neighbour picked her up from her Rio Claro home and took her to Barrackpore, where he raped her.

After the interview, she was taken to the Rio Claro Health Facility, where she was examined.
The matter has been transferred to the Child Protection Unit.

Editor's note: An earlier version of this story contained an error which suggested the second incident referred to involved police officers. This has since been adjusted to represent the facts. Newsday apologises for the lack of clarity.
