Supreme Court seeks investigation report in JGU rape case, issues notice to CBI and State
Hearing a petition filed by a student of MBA integrated course from Jindal Global University, who has alleged sexual harassment on campus, the Supreme Court today issued notice to CBI and the State Government.
The girl in her petition stated that she was raped by her seniors but the local police are trying to save the accused, allegedly under pressure from a MP. The petition also states that the police is destroying electronic evidence in the case and that the SHO, in charge of the investigation was transferred the next day, due to political pressure.
The petition states, “The state authorities have behaved in an extremely casual, lackadaisical, unprofessional and biased manner leading to valuable evidence being possibly destroyed by the accused persons due to the inability of the prosecution to properly protect and preserve the incriminating evidence.”
Thereafter, the bench of Justices A K Sikri and Uday U Lalit issued notices to State and CBI and posted the matter for hearing on Wednesday. It also sought investigation report from the police.
