Lakhimpur case: SIT formed, post-mortem report says no rape
Boginadi/Guwahati: A Special Investigation Team was Thursday constituted by Assam government to probe the Lakhimpur `rape-and-murder` case even as the post mortem report of the victim stated that she was not raped.
The Assam police today also formally arrested an accused, who was detained by police yesterday, police sources said.
According to the sources, the woman`s post mortem report received today has stated that no rape was committed on her but she has suffered injuries on her head and near the eyes.
Raju Chetia, who was picked up by police yesterday on suspicion of his involvement in the incident, was arrested today under sections IPC 365 (kidnapping or abducting with intent secretly and wrongfully to confine as person), IPC 376 (gangrape) and IPC 302 (murder), the sources said.
"During interrogation Chetia confessed that he and the woman were in a relationship for the last two years but denied that he was involved in her killing," they said.
Meanwhile, as stated by Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi yesterday, the Home Department today formed a Special investigation Team (SIT) to investigate into the incident that led to widespread protests and a district wide bandh.
According to the FIR filed in Boginadi police station, the woman on November 22 had boarded a shared tempo taxi to pick up her six-year old daughter from school at Boginadi area, about 14 km from Lakhimpur.
