SIT formed to probe Manipur girl's rape

A Special Investigating Team (SIT) led by Deputy Commissioner of Police B S Jaiswal has been formed to probe the rape of a teenaged Manipuri girl here, police sources said. Police said that the victim, on Sunday, recorded her statement in a magistrate's court.

The 14-year-old girl was forcibly grabbed by her landlord's son, taken to a vacant room and brutally raped in south Delhi's Vasant Vihar area on Friday night. 

Huge protest

The case triggered a massive protest outside the police station in the area. Police later registered a case and arrested the accused. Police sources said the SIT will conduct further investigation into the case.

The officers, who probed the Dec 16 gang rape, will also be in the team, they said. They will collect evidence and prepare the chargesheet as soon as possible, the sources added.“The victim was taken before a magistrate’s court by her father. Her statement was recorded under section 164 CrPC (recording of statement),” said a police officer. 

The girl on Friday night had gone out to buy some household items when the accused forcibly grabbed her in front of a pharmacy shop, dragged her to a vacant room and raped her. The girl suffered injuries on her face in the attack. She underwent medical tests at Safdarjung Hospital.
