Mysuru gangrape case: Cops convince survivor's family to record statement
The Mysuru cops who after cracking the case were finding it difficult to get the statement from the survivor for making the case watertight, reportedly have managed to convince the survivor and her family for her statements. After the incident, she was taken to Mumbai by her parents as she was in a state of shock and was not in position to talk.
In a big development in the Mysuru attempt to robbery and gangrape case, the cops have managed to convince the rape survivor and her family to record her official statement on the issue.
As per reports, the cops reached out to the survivor's parents and took them into confidence first and also spoke to her.
Both parents and the survivor have reportedly expressed their willingness to cooperate with the cops in the investigation.
According to the reports, the victim has been given the choice to either appear in the courtroom to depose her statement before a magistrate or appear through video conferencing.
Case in a nutshell:
On August 24, hillocks of Lalithadripura Police limits became a horror spot for 22-year-old student who had come with her male friend.
A group of anti-social elements from neighbouring Tamil Nadu first rounded up the couple in the dusky hours. In an inebriated state, the accused first demanded Rs 3 lakh from the victim's male friend and as he failed to arrange it he was assaulted and then the girl was dragged into bushes and gangraped.
The incident had sent shock waves across the country and the cops then solved the case in 84 hours. Based on the evidence found from the spot like bus tickets to Tamil Nadu and also technical evidence like running a sim card between Tamil Nadu and Mysuru, the cops arrested 5 persons initially and later managed to arrest two more.
The accused are school dropouts and daily wage labourers and one among them is a juvenile.
All of them have been sent to judicial custody and the cops are in the process to file a chargesheet in this connection.
