Bundi Rape Autopsy Report: On December 23 last year, a 15-year-old tribal girl was allegedly raped and murdered in Bundi, Rajasthan. The police had confirmed rape and then murder after primary investigation but were waiting for the autopsy. The autopsy report of the deceased revealed that she was raped by the three men even after her death.
As per the police, the 15-year-old girl was strangled with her dupatta when she tried resisting the attempts by the three men. The autopsy report revealed that there are over 30 injuries to the deceased girl’s private parts and her body has scratch makes and bruises all over. The Superintendent of Police Bundi, Jai Yadav said, “I have never seen such a ghastly incident in my life. Members of the Bundi Bar Association have also declared that they will not defend the accused in court.”
The deceased went missing on December 23, when she and her two friends took out their goats for grazing. The two friends returned and informed the deceased girl’s parents that she had stopped on the way to relieve herself.
But after she did not return home, the parents along with relatives went out to search for her. They found her naked body in a forest. She was found with fatal injuries on her neck and back. At the time, the police were investigating the possibility of a third person being involved in the crime. A post-mortem was done on the deceased and the body was handed over to the family.
As per the primary investigation, the police deduced that the deceased was first raped and then murdered. They pressed charges against two accused under sections 302 (murder), 201 (causing disappearance of evidence of offence) and 376 (rape) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC). The accused people have also been charged under sections of the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act.
In connection with the case, the police have arrested two people, including a minor and are still investigating the involvement of the third person.
On December 18, in a different case, a POCSO court in Bundi convicted 24-year-old Banwari Meena for 20-years of imprisonment despite the survivor and her family turning hostile. The judgement was made on the basis of evidence like semen DNA found in a vaginal swab of the minor survivor. The convict was also fined Rs 70,000. The case dated back to February 3, 2020, when the case against the convict was filed at Basoli police station in Rajasthan.
