Sources told TOI that the woman, a Krishna devotee, was found lying on the road in a state of shock with bruises all over her body. She later alleged that she had been kept captive by a “sadhu wearing a tulsi garland” who allegedly sexually assaulted her. Police officials escorted her to the Mathura district hospital on Tuesday evening, although her medical examination could be done only on Wednesday morning. Hospital sources said that she was in a state of extreme shock and looked “extremely frightened”.
Police officials, meanwhile, said that there was little conclusive proof to confirm her accusations.
“The medical tests conducted so far have not suggested sexual abuse. However, we have sent her to Agra for further tests,” said Manjil Saini, SSP, Mathura. Another police official added that so far the woman has not identified anyone and is “very vague about the sequence of events.”
