Mumbai rape: Police claim to have circumstantial evidence
Mumbai: In a twist in the minor girl`s rape case in which four persons, including a senior citizen, were arrested, medical examination suggested that the girl was not sexually assaulted, but police on Thursday claimed that they have circumstantial evidence against the accused.
"The medical report on the rape of the girl is negative
but this does not mean that the girl was not raped. We have
got some other circumstantial evidence against the accused to
prove their involvement in the crime," said Senior Inspector S
R Dhanedhar of Sakinaka Police Station.
Police had on Monday arrested four persons, including
a senior citizen, on charges of raping a 12-year-old
repeatedly for over two years in suburban Sakinaka and filming
the act on their mobile phones, police said.
In an effort to trace the remaining five accused,
including the victim`s cousin Dhawal, three special teams have
been formed, they said.
The girl, who studies in an English medium school at
Pereirawadi at Andheri and lives with her maternal aunt at
Saki Naka, had alleged that she had been raped by her cousin
and eight others including a 71-year-old man Jamuna Prasad.
The girl has been shifted to an undisclosed location
to ensure she is not influenced by the accused, he added.
