Amid allegations that the investigation in a gangrape of a minor was manipulated by the police to help the accused, the Basti district administration has ordered "an inquiry" into the charges.
On Thursday, the victim and her mother met District Magistrate S Madhu Shalini and complained that the police have been manipulating the evidence. "Police sent my daughter's dress for forensic examination a month after the incident. Her medical report was prepared after influencing doctors. Instead of rape, the police made it a case of attempt to rape," said the victim's mother.
She said the accused in the August 15 gangrape case have not been arrested.
S-I Om Prakash Chaubey, who is now probing the case after the previous IO was transferred, admitted that the girl's clothes were sent for forensic examination on September 21, more than a month after she was allegedly raped. "We found that details provided by the girl are true," he said, adding the next course of action would be decided after receiving FSL report.
