Chief Medical Officer rules out rape of women
The Jewar gang-rape and murder case took an abnormal turn on Friday after the Chief Medical Officer of Gautam Buddh Nagar, Dr Anurag Bhargava, ruled out allegations of rape of the four women, based on the medical reports.
The women had alleged that they were dragged to an isolated field, off the Jewar-Bulandshahr road, and gang-raped by six unknown assailants one by one early on Thursday. The culprits also shot a person dead after he raised objection against the accused.
"During the preliminary medical examination, we have found no injury marks in the private parts of the victims nor have we found the presence of semen in the women's body. Also, there were no semen stains on the clothes of the victims," said Bhargava. He was addressing a press conference along with Noida district magistrate B N Singh and Senior Superintendent of Police Love Kumar in Greater Noida on Friday.
"We have sent swabs and the samples of their clothes and tissues to the forensic laboratory in Lucknow for further tests, which will reveal the presence of any foreign DNA in the victim's body. The results are expected to be out within 15-20 days. Though the women have suffered abrasions on hands and body, nothing relevant to rape or sexual assault has been found in the reports," added Bhargava.
Meanwhile, SSP Love Kumar, told reporters: "The medical reports have been carried out and no proof of rape has yet been found. The gang-rape charges will remain in the FIR until final forensic reports are out. We are investigating the matter and soon we will be able to nab the culprits".
He further stated that the case in being investigated by efficient police officials and some professional criminals are involved in the incident.
"The culprits may be based in Bulandshar. We are trying to cover every possible angle we have. The victims earlier said that the gang-rape incident was a part of the personal revenge, but later they denied the claims. We are also working on the same" said Kumar.
