Order on anticipatory bail plea of dismissed cop adjourned

According to the police, the 15-year-old girl was raped by four to five men, including Borude, on several occasions between February and March this year at a flat in `Emerald Court` building in suburban Powai.

Mumbai: A sessions court on Monday adjourned its order on the anticipatory bail plea of police inspector Arun Borude, who was dismissed for allegedly raping a minor in
suburban Mumbai till tomorrow after the prosecution failed to answer the questions raised by the court.

Principal sessions Judge ML Tahalayani today pointed out several lapses in the investigation and raised queries which the prosecution failed to reply.

"There are several unanswered questions in the probe. I need answers to these queries. The court is bound to question you (police) on all these vital aspects," Tahalayani said.

According to the police, the 15-year-old girl was raped by four to five men, including Borude, on several occasions between February and March this year at a flat in `Emerald
Court` building in suburban Powai.

The incident came to light when the victim gave birth to a baby girl last week in a suburban hospital.

The court today asked the police if they had taken the victim to the flat where the alleged crime had taken place to which public prosecutor Mohan Sawant replied in the negative
stating that the victim was still in the hospital.

"Have you (police) at least taken the watchman of the building to the hospital to identify if this was the girl who was brought to the building by arrested accused Shanta
Gaikwad? This is a very crucial issue," the court said.
