Shopian Rape and Murder Case Fabricated: CBI Report

In its investigation reports, the CBI has concluded that the Shopian rape and murder case is fabricated.

The investigating agency filed its report in Jammu and  Kashmir High Court today.

The report said that no marks of violence was detected on the exhumed bodies of the victims, Neelofar and her sisiter-in-law Aasiya, who were allegedly raped and murdered by security forces in May.

In an order, the court had asked the CBI on October13 to complete probe in the case within two months. The CBI took over the case on September 13.

Soon after the case came to light, large-scale demonstrations followed across Kashmir valley with protestors alleging a cover-up by the police and the state government.

Consequently, four police officers were arrested on July 15 for allegedly doctoring evidence but were later released on bail for lack of proofs.

The CBI had exhumed the bodies of the victims on September 17. Doctors had then concluded that Aasiya was not raped.  The CBI also found gross irregularities in the medical examination.

A doctor who prepared the vaginal slides of the victims told the CBI that no samples had ever been taken from the victims. The samples were instead picked up from gloves used in the gynaecological ward of the district hospital.
