How could a rape victim mark the crime spot, asks Bhagyalakshmi
Thiruvananthapuram: Dubbing artist Bhagyalakshmi has come out criticising the police claim that it has not received any scientific evidence to prove the Wadakkanchery rape case.
Earlier in the day, the investigation officials had said that there is no clear indication regarding the crime spot.
“I have lost confidence in the current investigation team. The police contention that a victim of gang rape should have marked the crime spot while she was taken in a moving vehicle is unacceptable,” she charged.
“A woman was forcibly pushed inside the vehicle and subjected to harassment. In such a situation, how could the victim mark all those places. Police say they will take up the case if the victim provides all evidence. If so, why are we seeking the help of police,” he said.
The rape victim had alleged that she was gang raped by four men, including CPM Wadakkanchery branch committee member and Municipal Councillor Jayanthan, two years ago. The issue hit the headlines recently following a Facebook post by film dubbing artiste Bhagyalakshmi. CPM has suspended Jayanthan from the party following the allegation.
“Police have not even interrogated the accused. The National Women’s Commission and the Magistrate have recorded her statements. Now, we are pinning hopes on them,” she told Mathrubhumi News.
“I brought her ordeal to the public notice to ensure her justice. She has not yet come out of the shock. I’ll be with her till the end,” Bhagyalakshmi added.
