What happened to gang rape cases
After considering the reasons for the acquittal of the accused in gangrape charges, it is found that a victim of the gangrape case told that his medical examination was done after 3 months. The doctor said in court that we did not get any injury marks on body during medical examination. In this case it was found that the victims are 17 weeks pregnant. There is no mention of delay in this investigation. Neither the doctor nor the investigating officer was given a cross examination to know the reason for the delay. In the second gang case, the victim's medical examination was done a week after her complaint. In the order only it was mentioned that the doctor confirmed the authenticity of the medical examination before the court. But it did not mention the doctor's findings. In the third case of gangrepe, the medical examination report is mentioned. Nothing has been said on the findings of this report. In this case, the doctor was not listed as a witness. In the fourth case, the court told that the medical examination of the victim happened 40 days after the complaint. The doctor told that the victim is the mother of five children and her medical examination is not correct.
'Police threatened victims'
In two cases of gang rape, the victims told that they were taught to take the names of the accused. The cross examination was not conducted by the police. In four cases, 7 witnesses turned upside down in their court statement in front of the police. They were all relatives of the victims. They said that they had escaped from the crowd and they did not see anything. In two cases the relatives of the victims said that the police did not make their statements, but someone else made the statement in the relief camp. Two victims said that on the teaching of the police, they took the name of the accused so that they could get compensation. Two others told that an unknown official had signed him on blank paper in the relief camp. The court admitted that in all four cases of gangrape there was no concrete proof in the statements made under Section 164 of the IPC.
Negligence in the case of riots
In addition to the cases of murder and gangrape, in 26 cases of riots, it was revealed that the correct procedure was not adopted. There were two cases of riots in which cases were registered on behalf of the police officers present. Later during the trial these officials said that they can not identify the accused. In the 10 cases of the riots, cross examination was not conducted by a single police officer. 13 witnesses believe that some officers have their thumb print on blank paper. 52 witnesses turned away from their statements and said they had escaped from the spot even before the riots.
