The city is the headquarters of both NATO and the European Union. The court pointed to omissions in investigation and censured the police for trying to suppress facts and shielding those who committed the crime.The court held that police personnel appeared as witnesses for the defence and tried to destroy the prosecution’s case and that their attempts were “abortive” The court referred to instances such as absence of material facts in the FIR sending Bilkis for a medical examination only on the second day not taking her to the crime site not taking her to identify the bodies and not protecting the bodies It held that these form concrete evidence to infer that the personnel at Limkheda police station prepared incorrect records to protect the interests of people within the department as well as Randikpur locals who committed the crime “We find that witnesses who did not support the prosecution and who stepped in as defence witnesses did not create any confidence in our mind that they were telling the truth… We found that they were interested only in presenting a manipulated version to mislead the Court” the bench held The court agreed with CBI counsel Hiten Venegaonkar’s argument that the FIR filed by police was itself manipulated “In a way is a very important document which establishes the fact that though Bilkis went to police station and urged for her complaint to be recorded many facts were suppressed at the police station and her FIR was manipulated” the bench observed “The FIR itself throws light on the falsity in recording of information narrated by her It initiated an imaginary story of 500 persons chasing and attacking the group of Bilkis Undoubtedly this figure of 500 persons was deliberately mentioned to show the impossibility (of) her story and her being able to identify the accused from a mob of 500” The court also pointed to the letters written by district magistrate Jayanti Ravi directing the police to take steps to arrest the accused and several other reminders sent thereafter which was suppressed by the police as pointed out by the CBI “…The investigation was not only unsatisfactory but it smacked of dishonest steps to screen the culprits” the HC bench said “This itself is the most incriminating circumstance against the accused Earlier investigation has played the role of villain in this case That the investigation was tainted can also be seen from the evidence of one witness Dr Mahato…(of) Limkheda Community Health Centre He has stated that no postmortem was conducted on March 4 or 5 2002 and there was no request from the police to conduct any postmortem” ON GOVERNMENT DOCTORS The postmortem of seven bodies from the spot of crime was conducted by two doctors Arun Kumar Prasad and Sangeeta Prasad on March 5 2002 The court pointed out that one may feel the doctors are not concerned with the investigation and are therefore innocent But it observed the medical officers in this case had failed to perform the postmortem of all the bodies – as is expected under the law “The medical officer is required to examine private parts of the victim carefully keeping in view history of rape and make an objective note of the observations It is also a must for the medical officer in the case of rape to collect vaginal swab and smear or any other liquid or dried liquid which could have been a remnant of seminal discharge and thus give a correct direction to the investigation” Justice Tahilramani observed “In the inquest panchanama the doctors have only mentioned injury to private part of one deceased On perusal of the photographs one can easily make out that the females were sexually abused when they were put to death It was not one incident of rape but as per the case of prosecution nearly three to four females were raped” While the incident took place on March 3 2002 the doctors visited the spot two days later “We are convinced that the defence cannot be taken by the medical officers that they were directed by the police to conduct postmortem in such a manner” the court said “Medical officers are independent persons (and) they have to carry out postmortem independently as they are experts and write true and correct facts in respect of injuries and the cause of death” The bench added: “Nowhere in any of the postmortem reports the doctors have mentioned that white fluid flowing from private parts of the two bodies was noticed though it is mentioned in the inquest Similarly there is a clause in which the doctors has to state about collection of any substance found on the body and nothing was mentioned by the doctors Thus it is evident that they were not only casual in conducting the postmortem but suppressed the material information by way of omission” For all the latest Mumbai News download Indian Express App More Related

by the Kurdistan Regional Government whose relations with the central government in Baghdad are a stop-go affair things are different Even the worst mess has its winners The Kurds almost a century after missing out on statehood at the break-up of the Ottoman Empire are the beneficiaries of Iraq’s mayhem Nobody should bet against an independent Kurdish state within the next decade Syria and Iraq are in a state of implosion; Middle Eastern borders are up for grabs Qaeda affiliates have already done their grabbing They control wide swathes of Syria and Iraq 13 years (and trillions of dollars) after the US went to war in Afghanistan to dismantle the jihadi state within a state of Osama bin Laden’s al-Qaeda The left blames the disaster on President Bush and the American invasion of 2003 that shattered the Iraqi state and removed its murderous dictator Saddam Hussein If this had not happened there would be no fanatics from the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria at the doorsteps of Baghdad Wrong says the right President Obama is to blame for abandoning Iraq in 2011 without leaving a residual counter-terrorism force His feckless failure to back the Syrian opposition early in the uprising was a principal cause of Syria’s collapse into a lawless haven for Islamic fanatics If Obama had been more resolute in Iraq and Syria ISIS would not be on the rampage The facts are plain enough The US invaded Iraq in 2003 because of its weapons of mass destruction programme However Iraq did not have any weapons of mass destruction The invasion brought the Shiite majority to power so advancing the interests of Shiite Iran America’s enemy It ousted the Sunnis upsetting the Sunni-Shiite balance in the Middle East and infuriating America’s nominal ally Saudi Arabia As a result a Sunni-Shiite regional conflict has been escalating over the past decade There was no al-Qaeda in Saddam’s Iraq The US birthed it through the invasion It then beat al-Qaeda down before allowing its affiliates to regroup by leaving and doing nothing about Syria’s disintegration American and Iranian interests in Iraq are now aligned in preserving the sectarian Shiite government of Prime Minister Nouri Kamal al-Maliki encouraging his (unlikely) outreach to the winning Kurds and the whiplashed Sunnis and beating back the barbarians of ISIS However the political forces arrayed against cooperation with Iran in the Congress are powerful — and US and Iranian interests part ways in Syria and over Israel The blamegame misses the point Iraq and Syria well before America’s hapless intervention and hapless paralysis were rotten to the core as ripe for dismemberment as the Ottoman Empire a century ago sickened by the personality cults of brutal rulers cracking at the internal lines of fracture colonial overseers chose to disregard President Obama should use targeted military force to drive back the fanatics of ISIS If the jihadis cement their hold the blowback will be felt in Europe and the US Such action will not resolve Iraq’s problems or the region’s But the alternative is far worse It would be a betrayal of the thousands of American lives lost since 2001 and of the millions in the Middle
