Kotkhai CBI Probe: Shocker for HP Police as all accused given ‘clean chit’ in DNA testing
Shimla: As another blow to the claims of Himachal Pradesh Police regarding the arrest of six accused relating to the gangrape and murder of a minor girl in Kotkhai, Shimla district, were given clean chit in by forensics.
The report said that the DNA samples of arrested accused Ashish Chauhan (29), Rajinder Singh (32), Subash Singh Bisht (42) Surat Singh (29), Lok Jan (19), and Deepak (38) did not match with samples collected from the crime scene.
The report is supporting the theory suggesting that the HP Police SIT deliberately framed these people. Sadly, the police allegedly killed Suraj, a Nepalese laborer, in police custody before his crime could be proved.
Samples of semen, human cells, blood, saliva, mucus, hair etc. were collected from all accused and some suspects and were sent for forensic testing. However, none of them matched.
The interrogation of the police officials arrested on August 29 is expected to unearth the real story behind the custodial death and inquiry of rape and murder of the minor girl.
Reports said that CBI has now summoned SSP Bhajan Dev Negi and DSP Ratan Singh Negi for questioning at agency headquarters in the national capital.
The State government has also come under fire as fresh protests were reported from Shimla. Some media sources said the case could expose the role of influential politicians of the State.
With this development, the allegations of shoddy investigative work by the local police to shield real culprits are proving to be true. Distress among parents of the victim girl and public is only growing with these mind boggling developments in the CBI probe.
