A few days ago, in an incident at Mohanganj Police Station in Amethi, Uttar Pradesh, a video circulated, claiming that a rape accused was released without the victim’s medical test report. Allegedly, @RajeshR57419427, a main Twitter account, spread this misleading information. However, the following investigations revealed a different story.

The Incident and Source
According to sources, a scuffle occurred between two parties over a cow consuming fodder. The dispute arose when one party claimed that the other party’s cow had eaten their animals’ fodder. In addition, the police swiftly interfered to maintain peace and took preventive action. Contrary to the initial claims made in the video of rape and police failure, the accusations were proven false and baseless, clarified Amethi Police through an official tweet. They tweeted out that according to the statement of the Inspector in charge of Mohanganj, there was a dispute between the parties regarding the fact that the opponent’s cow had eaten the fodder of the applicant’s animals. Other allegations made are false and baseless. Further investigations are underway and we should also wait for the official report.
प्रभारी निरीक्षक मोहनगंज की आख्यानुसार, उभयपक्षों के मध्य विपक्षी की गाय द्वारा आवेदिका के पशुओं का चारा खा लेने की बात पर विवाद हुआ था । शान्ति व्यवस्था के दृष्टिगत निरोधात्मक कार्यवाही की गई है । लगाये गये अन्य आरोप असत्य व निराधार हैं ।— AMETHI POLICE (@amethipolice) September 15, 2023
In addition, the video shared on social media was misleading, fueling false narratives about the Amethi Police in the handling of a rape case. However, the truth is spun around a fight over cattle fodder.
