New Delhi: Even after five months, the Delhi Police has failed to solve any of the seven cases filed by
athletes during the Commonwealth Games which ranged from molestation to theft.

The Delhi Police has admitted in an RTI reply that seven cases were brought by Special Investigation Team and Crime Branch from Commonwealth Games police station and none of them have been solved.

"All seven cases are unsolved," the Delhi Police replied.

The cases mentioned by the Delhi Police include alleged molestation of an athlete in the Games village by some unknown persons, the reply stated.

The case has been registered under section 342/509 of the Indian Penal Code which relates to wrongful confinement and actions intended to insult the modesty of a woman for which punishment could be one year.
