Indian Air Force chief Air Chief Marshal V.R. Chaudhari on Tuesday said the banned two-finger test was not conducted on the woman officer who has accused a fellow IAF officer of rape at the Air Force Administrative College in Coimbatore, Tamil Nadu.

Chaudhari’s statement came days after the 28-year-old officer had levelled serious allegations against the IAF authorities including subjecting her to the banned test and also forcing her to withdraw the complaint against the accused Flight Lieutenant who has been arrested.

Asked about the allegations of the woman officer, the IAF chief said: “IAF law is very strict on any such incident and strict action will be taken after the detailed inquiry. No two-finger test was done.”

The victim in her complaint to the Tamil Nadu police had said that her seniors at the IAF had forced her to withdraw her complaint against the accused officer. She had lodged the complaint on September 20 and the accused was arrested by police on September 25.
