Abhaya case: Accused nun moves Delhi HC against CBI
New Delhi: A nun, who is one of the
accused in the 1992 Sister Abhaya murder case in a Kerala
convent, today moved the Delhi High Court seeking action
against CBI officials who forced her to undergo virginity test
Justice V K Shalli, however, raised the question of
jurisdiction and asked the counsel for nun Sister Sephy to
argue on the point of maintainability of the case in this
court on January 15.
Filing a petition, Sister Sephy, on bail since
January, contended the investigating agency forced her to
undergo the virginity test against her wish which was
violative of her fundamental rights.
In May this year, the National Human Rights Commission
had expressed its inability to take action against the erring
officials as the case is pending in various courts.
According to Sister Sephy, when CBI failed to prove
the allegation that she was having sexual relation with the
fathers in the convent, CBI concocted a story in the
chargesheet saying she had undergone hymenoplasty to keep
intact her virginity.
Seeking compensation for vulgar language allegedly
used by the agency against her, she accused CBI leaking the
chargesheet to the media with an "ulterior" motive.
