A woman in her 20s was allegedly tortured and raped by five persons, including a doctor and a suspended police constable, in the city, the police said on Thursday.The accused left the woman in a semi-naked state on Agra road here on Wednesday, they said. The woman alleged that she was tortured and gang-raped on Tuesday night, they added. “A case has been registered against five persons — Kapil Sharma, Deepesh Chaturvedi, Dr Anurag and two others who are unidentified,” DCP (East) Rahul Jain said. The DCP said the case is being probed from all angles.Previous rape case The woman had lodged a case of rape against Mr. Sharma, who was then a police constable, at the Jyoti Nagar police station in 2018. She alleged that Mr. Chaturvedi, who posed as an official of the State Human Rights Commission, assured her of getting Mr. Sharma arrested. However, when she did not find any official in the SHRC by the name, she reached Mr. Chaturvedi’s residence where she was allegedly raped and tortured on Tuesday. An FIR was lodged under Sections 323 (voluntarily causing hurt), 342 (wrongful confinement) and 376-d (gang-rape) of the IPC. “The suspended police constable has been detained and is being interrogated,” Mr. Jain said. The woman has been admitted to a hospital, he said.
Chappell believes that it is time for Dhoni to make way for Kohli as the new Indian skipper in Tests Former Australia captain Ian Chappell does not find MS Dhoni good enough to be India’s Test captain, saying he was past his prime as far as leading the side and it was right time to hand the reins of the team to Virat Kohli.”I think it time for MS Dhoni to go and may be it is right time for Kohli to come in as captain,” Ian Chappell said in an exclusive interview here.”Certainly, he (Dhoni) is not a Test captain. I think he is a good captain in shorter-version of the game. I don’t think there would be a problem to give it to Virat Kohli now, though,” he said.Chappell said India need a fresh brain to lead the side, but Indian selectors are not ruthless to take hard decisions.”Indian selectors do not have the ruthless quality as Australian selectors have. They wait for the guy to retire. I mean after he (Dhoni) lost 4-0 to England and Australia, if he would have been an Australian captain he would have gone. He did nothing to inspire the team,” he said.”You can always loose, that is fine, but you go down fighting. I did not find him do that. To me the captain has lost his usefulness and it is time for him to go.” Chappell said 27 is about right age for Kohli to lead the side.advertisement”I don’t think captaincy would affect Kohli adversely because he is a very strong character and is a confident cricketer. So he can work out (things) as a captain. At 27, you have got four to five years for a player to peak, and it is crucial to give the guy the captaincy.”No good giving him captaincy at the age 32 to 33, when he is started to go over the top. You got to give him his best chance,” he opined.Chappell said the biggest problem for the Indian team is selection as he put question mark over Stuart Binny’s place in the playing XI in the first Test against England.”The selection was wrong. If you don’t get selections right it is pretty hard to win. How can you leave Ashwin. Why did they pick Binny? Binny is not a bowler and he bats at number eight. Ashwin also can bat and far better bowler.Ashwin is far better bowler than Jadeja as well. So they have to sort that out.”In next Test at Lords, Chappell said he would love to see Rohit Sharma and Ashwin in the playing XI. “Lords is not that good for spinners. So, I will drop Jadeja and Binny, and play Rohit Sharma and Ashwin. That will be far better balanced side.”Chappell also spoke about England and South African captains Alastair Cook and Graeme Smith, saying they are not great leaders.”Apart from Dhoni, Cook and Smith, all are very very average captains. In my opinion they are miles behind Michael Clarke. A captain should have respect from players and they should believe in his ability as a captain. Australia will bedelighted if Cook is the captain when the next series takes place,” he said.Chappell said Clarke was the best captain in the world at the moment.”Clarke is a really good captain and I cannot think of another one who can – I haven’t seen much about Angelo Mathews. I really don’t know about him,” he said.However, Chappell doesn’t see Clarke going too long as captain because of his back problem.”He seems to know how to manage his back problems but I don’t see him going for long time. I enjoy watching him as a captain because he makes things happen,” he said.Chappell said Steven Smith and David Warner could be potential future captains for Australia.”Steve Smith probably. I think he is a very good cricketer. He has captained in shorter-form of the game. He has got all the attributes. He is just starting now to really establish himself as a player.”Warner also wouldn’t be a bad captain. I would like to see Warner to shut up and stop stupid talk on the field. It is not a good thing to come in as a captain with that kind of reputation. Somebody should tell him ‘David you can win matches with the bat – forget the tongue,” he said.
