Pascal's DNA report has 'ambiguous' sections

In an interesting twist in the Pascal Mazurier case, the City police claimed on Friday that the DNA report of the French diplomat’s blood sample report contains several “ambiguous and vague” sections that need to be clarified.

Investigators who received the DNA report on Friday evening say they will seek clarifications on the “ambiguous and vague” sections from the State Forensic Science Laboratories which had tested Mazurier’s blood sample for DNA profiling.

Top police officers, including the Investigation Officer, Devaraj, carefully studied the DNA report’s contents and concluded that there was ambiguity in a few sections, a top police officer said, refusing to elaborate further.

The matter was “highly sensitive” and it was premature to comment, he added. Interestingly, police have decided to submit the same “ambiguous and vague” report in toto before the magistrate court.

When asked whether the DNA report confirms that Mazurier actually raped his four-year-old daughter, the officer chose to remain silent. Investigators have also decided against seeking the French diplomat’s police custody.

“We have clearly told the court that we do not want his police custody,” the officer said.

When asked if the police’s refusal to seek Mazurier’s police custody means the allegations against him are strong and can be easily proved, the officer’s refrain was: “It could be.”

In the meantime, Suja John Mazurier, the diplomat’s wife, continues to stay at her husband’s house in Vasanthnagar. She has not sought any protection from the jurisdictional police.

But the police say they are ready to provide her protection if she asked for it.
