Shopian Case: Doctor Gave Own Vaginal Swab for Test

In what could be termed as a bizarre turn to the investigations into the alleged rape and murder of two women in Shopian, the doctor who carried out the post-mortem of the victim has reportedly said told investigators that she submitted her own vaginal swab samples instead of one of the victims.

Following confession of Dr Nighat Chiloo that one of the slides of the two victims were made out of her own vaginal swabs, DNA samples of Dr Chiloo and her husband were taken last week.

Working at the Pulwama district hospital, Dr Chiloo had carried out the second post-mortem on the victims, Nelofar (22) and Asiya (17).

Following their alleged rape and murder, scores of agitators took to the streets in Shopian town in the May 2009.

The state government ordered several investigations before the CBI took over the case on September 17.

Four police officers from Shopian were arrested on charges of destroying evidence.

The CBI will submit its probe report to the Jammu and Kashmir High Court on December 14.
