Plight of a rape victim

According to a report published recently by this newspaper, the police accused a rape victim's brother of being the perpetrator and arrested him, even though the victim had stated that it was another person, not his brother, who raped her. As detailed in the report, the police actually tried to protect the actual culprit. It was an attempt to intimidate the victim and her family and prevent them from seeking justice.

I just cannot fathom how police could come up with such a disgusting theory just to intimidate the victim. I urge the authorities concerned to investigate the case properly and bring the actual culprit to book. Also, the authorities should take serious steps against the police personnel who, instead of helping the victim, tried to save the culprit.
