Raped 14-year-old girl was allegedly asked to strip in front of cops at a police station in Kushinagar district of eastern Uttar Pradesh, India to convince the cops that her allegations of rape were genuine and not concocted.

This happened after the initial attempts of the girl's father to get the complaint registered proved futile after he failed to pay Rs 50,000 to the police-the price they allegedly demanded to register the complaint and arrest the accused.

The incident came to light on Tuesday after the family lodged a complaint with the superintendent of police (SP) Kushinagar accusing the police in-charge of demanding Rs 50,000 to register a rape complaint and humiliating the girl and her family for failing to meet his demands. 

As per the complaint, when the family failed to meet the demands of the police officer, he asked the girl to accompany him into a room where he locked the doors from inside and asked the girl to strip saying he wanted to verify if she was raped.

"He took me into a room and closed the door and asked me to remove my clothes," the girl was quoted in the complaint. The police officer also allegedly abused the girl and her parents and chased them away without filing a first information report (FIR).
