Meru - A female suspect in Tigania central has filed a case against Mulika police whom she accused of rape.
The suspect, only identified as Salome, had been taken to the station on Monday over charges of creating disturbance.
According to her lawyer Kennedy Nyamokeri, Salome was released on cash bail of 30,000 but was called back to the station 6 hours later where she was allegedly drugged and raped.
In a video posted by NTV, Nyamokeri said that Salome woke up to find that she had been sexually assaulted.
“She said she was served milk last night by a certain police officer,” explained the lawyer, who added that his client had the condom used by the suspect.
The lawyer now wants the station OCS to appear in court to name the officers responsible even as investigations continue.

This is not the first rape case to be reported by a female suspect.
In March, another lady died at a police station in South B after she was allegedly raped by the police officers.
Mercy Nanjala had spent only nine hours at the AP camp before she died, with the officers claiming that she died of epilepsy.
