Surat Rape

Mumbai: Amid nationwide outrage against Kathua, Unnao and rape cases in other parts of the country, the post mortem report of the 10-year-old girl whose dead body was found recently said she was raped, kept captive and tortured before being strangled to death.

Surat police is still waiting for the results of forensic tests to confirm sexual assault but Dr. Ganesh Govekar of the Surat Civil Hospital, where the post-mortem of the minor girl was conducted, shared chilling observations.

“Going by the nature of the injuries, they seem to be caused in the period ranging from one week to one day prior to the recovery of the body, suggesting that the girl might have been held captive, tortured and possibly raped,” news agency PTI quoted Dr. Govekar as saying.

While talking to news agency ANI Dr. Govekar, said, "The girl's body had 86 injury marks including on her private parts. Samples have been taken for forensic test to ascertain whether she was drugged or not."

The minor girl, believed to of 09 to 11 year old, has not been identified and her body has not been claimed yet. According to India Today, the police is checking the list of missing persons to identify the girl. The identities of those who committed the crime are also unknown.

"Even after eight days, the parents of the girl are yet to be identified. The police also believe that she was murdered somewhere else and the dead body has been thrown here. The victim's picture has been sent to the state police control room for identification process," Police inspector BK Jhala said.

The dead body of the minor girl was discovered in Surat amid the widespread anger against rape of a 17-yerar-old girl in Unnao, Uttar Pradesh and rape and murder of 08-year-old girl in Kathua, Jammu & Kashmir.

According to the latest report in the Unnao rape case, the accused Kuldeep Singh Sengar, an MLA of the ruling BJP, was sent to seven-day custody by a Special CBI court on Saturday, while the medical examination of the 17-year-old victim was conducted at a hospital in Unnao earlier that day.

Accused of raping a 17-year-old and conspiring to kill her father, who died of injuries he sustained during police custody allegedly by Sengar's brother and some aides, was arrested by the CBI on Friday after a day-long interrogation. He was also confronted with some facts by the agency.

In Kathua rape and murder case, police has charged nine including some senior police officers. The 08-year-old girl was held captive in a temple, sedated and gang-raped multiple times before being murdered by the accused. The accused also included a juvenile and his friend who travelled from Uttar Pradesh to Jammu to satisfy his lust.
