UP teen case: Murder confirmed but not rape
Lucknow: The second autopsy conducted on the 14-year-old girl, whose body was found hanging at a police station in UP’s Lakhimpur-Kheri district, has confirmed that the minor was murdered.
However, the autopsy report, while confirming that the minor girl was strangulated to death, has failed to ascertain whether she was raped.
The second autopsy on the girl’s body was ordered by the Mayawati government in view of public outcry over the girl’s alleged rape and murder by policemen. An earlier post-mortem report had said that the death was caused due to asphyxia.
Under intense pressure from opposition parties, the Uttar Pradesh government has ordered a CB-CID probe into the alleged rape and murder of the teenager. The two doctors, AK Agrawal and SP Singh, who had conducted the first autopsy have been suspended, with immediate effect, on charges of tampering with evidence.
Also, Lakhimpur Superintendent of Police, DK Roy, has been removed from his post. Before this, the state government had suspended eleven policemen for their prima facie "dereliction of duty".
At the same time an FIR has been lodged against a sub-inspector and two policemen for allegedly tampering with evidence.
Meanwhile, the victim’s mother has claimed that she was offered Rs 5 lakh to hush up the case.
In view of the sensitivity of the matter, the National Commission for Protection of Child Rights (NCPCR) demanded the arrest of all the personnel present in the police station.
"It is totally unacceptable that the incident happened in a police station. It is important that the police (personnel present at time of the incident) are arrested immediately and an FIR registered," NCPCR director Shanta Sinha told reporters.
"I must say all the police who were in the police station at that time need to be arrested," she said.
Sinha added, “It (first information report) should be based on the fact that the child`s body was found in police station, it could not have been done without the collusion and connivance of the police," she said.
She emphasised that the inquiry should be led by a senior woman police officer who would probe the case with "with a sense of fairness and neutrality".
