Bone report of minor sought

Delhi Police will wait for a bone report of the minor boy accused in the Delhi gangrape case to ascertain his age before filing a report with Juvenile Justice Board.

Police sources said they will ask the Board to get the bone density test done as fast as possible to determine the age of the accused.

The boy had claimed using his school certificate that he is 17-year-old. However, police have refused to take the claim and sought for an ossification test to determine his age.

He was among the six persons arrested in connection with the 16 December gangrape and brutal assault of the 23-year old physiotherapy student in a moving bus in south Delhi. She died during treatment in Singapore on 29 December.

Sources said the test has not been done and a fresh request has been sent to the Board to get the test conducted. Police have filed the charge sheet against the five remaining persons allegedly involved in the case in a court.
