Rape victim demands CBI probe against IAS officer

Upset over delay in inquiry in her rape case, the 23-year-old victim today demanded a CBI probe into the case and the immediate arrest of IAS officer B B Mohanty, who has been absconding since the FIR was lodged.

Rajasthan government had not taken any action against the slow investigation by state police which could not arrest the accused, and did not search the accused's home, the victim told a press conference at Pink Press Club.

"I demand that the CBI should probe the case. I will also meet the Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje in a day or so to request her to take up stern action in the case and ensure justice to me," she said.

The victim said she had already met the state women's commission Chairperson Ladkumari Jain and submitted all the relevant details.

Meanwhile, when contacted, DCP (South) Sanjay Shrotriya told PTI that a search would likely be conducted at Mohanty's residence in Mahesh Nagar tomorrow as the police had procured the search warrant last week.

The victim's statement has already been recorded, he said.

In her complaint on January 25, the woman alleged that the IAS officer, B B Mohanty, Chairman of Rajasthan Civil Services Appellate Tribunal, had raped her repeatedly last year fter promising to help her clear civil services examination.
