Police to get help's autopsy report today

A three-member medical board has conducted the post-mortem of the 17-year-old domestic help, who was found dead at a house in outer Delhi’s Mongolpuri on Wednesday. A detailed report is expected to be filed with police on Friday.

On Thursday, police continued to question the girl’s family members and her employers. The girl lived with family at a JJ Colony in Deepali Enclave and was found dead in the house of Atul Verma.

After the violent protest of Wednesday, police have also provided security to the Verma family. At present, the Station house Officer of Mongolpuri police station, Ashok Sharma, is leading the investigating team.

Atul maintains that the girl had committed suicide by burning herself in the bathroom of his house. “It is claimed that she had bolted the bathroom door before the act,” said a police officer.

On questioning, Atul told police that he saw smoke billowing from the bathroom’s ventilation and rushed to the room. He and his family members had to break in and later found the girl burnt to death. They informed her father first and then reported the matter to police. Police have found a bottle of kerosene and a knife in the bathroom.

Relatives of the girl, on the other hand, still refuse to buy the version and insist that the girl was allegedly killed as they told police that they had seen injuries inflicted on her body with a sharp object.

They also told police that the girl was allegedly subjected to physical and mental harassment by her employers, where she had been working for the last one year.

“Inquest proceedings under section 174 of Code of Criminal Procedure are being carried out and we will register a case on the basis of the post-mortem report,” added Vikramjit Singh, Deputy Commissioner of Police (Outer).
