Monday December 8, 2014 10:44 PM, IANS

Delhi Police is ready to make a water-tight charge sheet in the case of rape of a 25-year-old financial analyst, and is likely to file it within three weeks, a police official said Monday.

"The incident happened Friday night and we cracked the case next day. And we also managed to zero in on the accused from his native place at Uttar Pradesh's Mathura. Now, we will try to file the charge sheet within three weeks," a senior official told IANS.

Delhi Police had filed the charge sheet in the Dec 16, 2012 gang-rape of a physiotherapist student in moving bus in just seventeen days of the incident.

A team led by Additional Deputy Commissioner of Police Brijendra Singh has been assigned the task. Brijendra Singh will be assisted by Assistant Commissioner of Police Shweta Singh and investigating officer Inspector Anil Dureja.

The woman was raped Friday night by a global taxi company's cab driver Shiv Kumar Yadav, while she was on her way home in north Delhi's Inderlok area from Gurgaon in Haryana where she works in a private company.

According to a police official, they have collected the forensic evidence and DNA samples. The reports are awaited.

"But we will try that Yadav gets maximum punishment under the rape laws," said the officer.

A case for forgery (section 420 of Indian Penal Code) also is likely to be slapped on Yadav, as he faked the clearance certificate from the Delhi Police to run the cab on city roads. Police Commissioner B.S. Bassi has already marked an inquiry into this matter.
