New Delhi: Delhi Police are searching for the iron which was used to torture the domestic helps at the house of BSP MP Dhananjay Singh and his wife Jagriti Singh and trying to access clippings of a video recorder recovered from the couple`s South Avenue house.

According to a police source close to the probe, investigators have so far found sticks, rod, artificial horn of a deer and other things which were used to torture the domestic helps in the house but the iron is yet to be found.

Police are yet to access the footages stored in a video recorder recovered from the house which they suspect may contain videos of Jagriti beating up or torturing the domestic helps in her house.

Investigators are also tracking the human trafficking trail through which 35-year-old Rakhi and another maid Meena were brought to Delhi from West Bengal`s North 24 Parganas district around a year ago.

While Rakhi allegedly died of the torture inflicted on her by Jagriti, Meena had also been severely injured and is at present undergoing treatment at R M L Hospital here, said police.

Last night, a magistrate recorded Meena`s statement under section 164 CrPC at the hospital. She has apparently corroborated the minor domestic help`s statement about inhuman treatment being meted out to them by Jagriti.

As per police, Dhananjay Singh had contacted one Dev Kumar who had got these two women employed at his house as domestic maid.
