IAF rape case: A day after the reports of the invasive, illegal two finger test done on an alleged rape survivor in the Air For College in Coimbatore, the National Commission for Women addressed the issue in a statement.

In the statement, the commission condemned the alleged usage of the banned two finger test that the survivor was subjected to during her medical examination at the Air Force College, after she alleged sexual assault to the authorities.

The National Commission For women (NCW), stated that it had read a media post and had gotten informed of the matter, and is “taking cognizance” of it. It condemned the act saying that the survivor was made to “relive the trauma” of the alleged sexual assault. It strongly condemned the actions of the doctors at the Air force Hospital for violating the right to privacy and dignity of the survivor.

According to a report, the commission added that their chairperson, Rekha Sharma, had written to the Air Chief Marshal of IAF to look into the matter and take the necessary steps to educate officers about the guidelines laid down by the government surrounding medical examination.

The two-finger test is an unscientific method which attempts to detect sexual assault through the laxity of vaginal muscles, based on whether or not the woman is sexually active. This practice was banned after the Nirbhaya case in 2013, because a woman’s sexual history has nothing to do with determining sexual assault.

In the said rape case in Coimbatore, a student of the Air Force College said in her FIR alleged that sexual assault by her peer named Amitesh and informed the authorities. As per a report by The News Minute, the survivor was also asked about her past sexual history. The survivor has also made serious allegations of harassment who allegedly tried to dissuade and discourage her from reporting the matter officially.
