Shimla: As speculated, the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) is empty-handed in the case relating to the barbaric gangrape and murder of a minor girl in Kotkhai Tehsil of Shimla district. The agency has failed to find any clue of true culprits after an investigation of six months. 

With just five days remaining to submit the final status report in the case, the agency has today announced a reward of Rs.10 lakh to anyone from the general public who will prove credible information that could lead to the arrest of real culprits.

The agency has provided telephone/mobile numbers where the informants could deliver the information. The agency issued 91-9650394782, 8219885920, 8219893590, 011-24368637, 24368640 as contact numbers.  

The CBI has also provided an E-Mail address (spscu2del[at]cbi[dot]gov[dot]in. 

The name and details of the informant will be kept secret, said the CBI.

The victim had left Government Senior Secondary School, Mahashu on July 4, 2017, at about 4.30 p.m. She did not reach home and her dead body was recovered on July 06, 2017 from the forest area of Halaila, Kotkhai, and Shimla.

The CBI had registered the case on July 22, 2017, after the State High Court ordered an inquiry on July 19, 2017, in CWPIL No.88 of 2017 and took over the investigation of FIR No.97 of 2017 filed on July 6 under Sections 302, 376 of IPC & Section 4 of POCSO Act. The FIR was earlier registered at Police Station, Kotkhai.

Disappointed with the CBI, the locals are likely to take to roads again. It is a one-of-its-kind case where the local police officials, who had probed the case prior to the CBI, allegedly framed wrong people, tortured them to extract a false confession and even hacked one of them to death on the intervening night of July 18 and 19.  

The real culprits still remain unknown.
