‘Never posed as victim’s Bhabi’, says doctor from MP who spent 2 days in Hathras


‘Media channels are running fake narrative’

New Delhi: Accusing the media houses of spreading fake narrative, a physician based in Madhya Pradesh’s Jabalpur city has denied the allegation of posing as fake relative (Bhabi) of woman who was “gang-raped and then murdered” by four upper-caste Hindu men in Hathras district of Uttar Pradesh.

The doctor identified as Rajkumar Bansal was accused of posing as a fake sister-in-law as she stayed at the victim’s house for two days, a report by News18 said.

In this regard, the report said, Special Investigation Team (SIT) which is probing into the alleged links of PFI and Naxals in the Hathras case had narrowed down to a woman who allegedly posed as victim’s sister in law and stayed at her home.

“Did I say that I am the sister in law of the victim? I am not illiterate; I only talk on the basis of evidences,” the report quoted Bansal, a physician at Netaji Subas Chandra Bose Medical College in Jabalpur, as saying.

The woman added that her visit to Hathras was purely on humanitarian grounds as she was quite upset with growing “atrocities” in the last few years.

“I had planned to extend some financial help and I also offered them my one month’s salary,” Bansal said, adding that she had planned to return the next day after spending some hours with the victim’s family but was requested to stay for few more days to which she agreed.

“I came to learn that UP SIT is linking me with Naxals and when they (SIT) come to meet me, then only could I know what they are trying probe against me. I was born and brought up in Madhya Pradesh and did my job there itself. So, I am also curious to know who is linking me with the Naxals,” the Physician told News18.

The physician said that she has no connection with Bhim army who protested against the Hathras case and her visit to Hathras had nothing to do with Naxals.

On Saturday, the doctor was served a show-cause notice on for allegedly attending a protest against the Hathras case, a report by Hindustan Times quoted dean of the Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose GMC as having said.

Bansal had taken a leave of three days from October 4 to 6 and went to Hathras to meet the family. However, did not inform the medical college administration about the purpose of taking leave, the report said.

“We came to know from media reports that Rajkumari Bansal participated in a protest in Hathras. According to service rules, she can’t take part in any protest as she is a government officer. The notice has been served to her and her reply has been sought within a week. Further action will be subject to her reply,” the report quoted dean as saying.

talking to media reporters, Bansal said: “After the gang-rape incident, I couldn’t sleep properly for two days. I decided to go to Hathras to console the family and to look into the medical reports of the victim. I stayed there for two days on the request of the family members.”

“During my stay, Bhim Army president Chandrashekhar Ravan came to meet the family. Some people and media persons shot my videos, which are now going viral on social media and some people have even called me a Maoist. Scandalous and baseless allegations are being levelled against me,” she added, according to HT report.
