|Rape? Bengaluru girl bleeds to death, Assam minister's son grilled |
~"The deceased minor was brought dead by her mother to the hospital's emergency room, and the body was shifted to the Forensics Department for the postmortem," said a doctor, requesting anonymity. "I heard that it was a case of rape and there was commotion in the casualty ward. Though she was said to be bleeding, I did not see her," said the doctor.
But quite mysteriously, the city police are now claiming that the girl died of complications due to dengue fever after she was admitted to the casualty ward, and that she was not declared "brought dead".
Sources alleged that the 10-year-old victim was sexually assaulted by more than one person, who were all known to her mother.
The doctors at Ramaiah Hospital suspected something amiss as the victim was brought dead to the hospital with her private parts bleeding.
Based on the mother's complaint and the doctors' suspicion, the Sanjay Nagar police summoned Rituraj Phukan, son of Pranati Phukan, the minister of Handloom & Textiles, Sericulture & Cultural Affairs in Assam, Pallav Phukan and two others and recorded their statements, police at Sanjay Nagar police station said.
Dr Basappa Hugar, who conducted the post-mortem on the victim on Saturday, confirmed that the 10-year-old victim was bleeding from the rectum. ~
