Alleging a “massive cover-up” in the recent murder of five members of a family in Uttar Pradesh’s Khevrajpur village, the TMC said the women members were “raped” before being killed.

The five family members were allegedly killed with sharp-edged weapons in Khevrajpur village in Prayagraj district Friday night, police said. “Yesterday our fact finding delegation went to Khevrajpur village in Prayagraj, UP to meet survivors of the mass murder of 5 people that happened 3 days ago.

“Shockingly, the family told us that bodies of 2 victims were found without clothes & with vaginal bleeding,” TMC national spokesperson Saket Gokhale tweeted on Monday. In a series of tweets, he alleged the police were told by the family members that they suspected two of the victims had been “raped before being beaten to death”.

“Despite this, the police have NOT filed an FIR of rape. When questioned, the local SP said that the family hadn’t given this in writing,” he tweeted.

“One of these 2 victims was a 22-year-old woman who was paralyzed. I had to teach the SP the basics of law that once a cognizable offense is disclosed (even orally), police is bound to register an FIR. Clearly, a massive cover-up being done in a rape & murder case,” Gokhale added.
