The policemen allegedly took turns to rape her. The victim was reportedly made to shell out Rs. 40,000 for absolving her of the charges.
The policemen allegedly forced her for oral sex first and made a video clipping of it. The accused were yet to be arrested till reports last arrived.
On June 5 the crime took place when the transgender was arrested and locked up at the police station on charges of assaulting a policeman in the Dargah area. She was later released on bail on Monday. Upon her release from jail, the victim went to lodge a complaint with the Dargah police but was allegedly turned away. The complaint was registered when she approached district additional SP Sharad Chaudhary on Tuesday. The investigation has been handed over to an IPS officer, as per sources.
Transgenders are followers of the Khwaja and every year thousands of them come to Ajmer from all over India to offer chaadar and prayers at the shrine. At the last Urs, the transgender community offered 7.5kg silver at the Dargah.
