Medical test fails to prove rape

The medical test on an 18-year-old girl allegedly gang-raped at a Park Street office on Saturday evening didn’t find anything conclusive to establish sexual assault.

“The doctors who conducted the test didn’t find any injury or biological evidence,” said an officer of Park Street police station on Monday.

The police were waiting for the medical report to make arrests following the girl’s complaint on Saturday night that three men had taken turns to rape her for over two hours. The Karaya girl, who works as a domestic help, had alleged that the three accused were known to her and one of them lured her to the office with the promise of a cleaner’s job.

“We are probing the case before taking action against the accused named in the FIR because there is no evidence to corroborate the complainant’s allegation,” the officer said. “The accused trio have claimed that they were not present at the spot when the alleged incident happened.”

Cop injured

The additional OC of Tollygunge traffic guard, Amit Maity, was injured after an auto driver kicked him during a raid near the Alipore petrol pump on Monday evening. The driver, Dipak Sarkar, has been arrested. When Sarkar, plying on Bosepukur-Behala route, tried to flee, Maity grabbed a rod of his auto and tried to stop it. The OC fell when the driver kicked him and injured his head.

Minor rescued

The driver and conductors of a bus on route 77A, plying between Birlapur and Esplanade, brought to police in Budge Budge on Monday an 11-year-old boy they found sleeping on a seat. He could not tell his name or address. The police have sent the boy to a juvenile home.

Body found

A 16-year-old domestic help was found hanging from the ceiling of her employer’s home in Topsia on Monday. Sony Khatun, 16, was a resident of Purnia district in Bihar. Police said the minor girl was working as a help for the past two years.
