Chapra: In a shocking incident, a murder accused has alleged that she was raped in a police station after the policemen made her drink tea laced with sedatives.

One Kumari Babli (name changed), who was arrested on August 14 by Manjhi Police under charges of murder, has leveled the allegations against the policemen.

Babli shared her ordeal with the jail officials here after she was remanded to judicial custody on August 19.

Taking action on the complaint, Jail Superintendent, Kumar Mangal wrote to the district civil surgeon for medical examination of Babli. The medical examination, conducted by Gynecologist Dr Kiran Ohja at Sadar Hospital confirmed rape.
