The victim’s clothes and bed sheets have been sent for forensic examination.
A three-member inquiry committee has been formed by the hospital authorities apart from the police investigations to probe the allegations
Bankura SP Pranab Kumar said, “We’ve sent the victim to a hospital in Kolkata for medical examination. The victim’s mother complained that a resident doctor of the hospital took the victim for medical examination when the incident happened.”
He also said that the hospital staff was being questioned and investigations were on.
The incident comes at a time when the West Bengal government has been facing flak over rising rape cases in the state. Earlier this month, two cases of rape were reported in Kolkata.
On Sunday, a 30-year-old woman was allegedly raped by a gang of armed robbers. Earlier, a woman was allegedly raped in a moving car in Kolkata. The woman, a mother of two, also accused the policemen of misbehaving with her and mocking her.
West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Tuesday blamed the Left Front for the deteriorating law and order condition in the state. She claimed that the 30-year-old woman allegedly raped by a gang of armed robbers on Sunday too was a set-up.
“Fake rape charges are being levelled to malign Bengal‘s good name. Baby deaths too are a planned conspiracy by the Left,” Mamata said.
