Jaipur, Jan 13 (PTI) The Rajasthan State Human Rights Commission on Thursday directed the Alwar district administration and the superintendent of police to submit a report by January 18 in connection with the assault of a mentally challenged girl who was found in a distressed state with injuries on her private parts.
Police have said it appears to be a case of rape but anything conclusive can only be said after the report of the medical jurist comes.
The girl, about 14 years old, was found lying on a road near Tijara Fatak on Tuesday night. She was bleeding and was admitted to the district hospital. Later, she was referred to the J K Lone Hospital here.
According to doctors, her rectum was displaced and she underwent a two-and-a-half-hour surgery during which a hole was created in her stomach so that stool can pass.
Taking suo motu cognisance of the incident, the Rajasthan State Human Rights Commission has asked Alwar district administration officials and the superintendent of police (SP) to submit a report regarding the matter by January 18 and arrest the culprits, according to an official statement.
Commission chairman Justice Gopal Krishna Vyas has also directed the superintendent of the J K Lone Hospital to ensure proper treatment of the girl and sought a report, the statement said.
Alwar SP Tejaswini Gautam said the girl’s medical report is awaited and police teams are investigating the case.
“We are investigating the case based on the FIR registered. We have got a few leads and we are working on them. We are yet to receive the medical report of the victim,” she said.
Sangeeta Beniwal, chairperson of the Rajasthan State Commission for Protection of Child Rights, reached the J K Lone Hospital and enquired about the health of the girl from the doctors.
Beniwal said she reviewed arrangements made at the hospital for the girl’s treatment and in view of her condition, psychiatrists have also been assigned duty at the hospital.
Meanwhile, the Rajasthan BJP formed a committee to seek justice for the girl and her family.
The committee comprises BJP national secretary Alka Gurjar, Mahila Morcha state president Alka Mundra, MLA Ramlal Sharma, MP Jaskaur Meena and party state secretary Jitendra Gothwal.
Committee members left for Ranthambore where Congress general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra is on a personal visit. However, they were stopped by the police at Shergarh in Sawai Madhopur.
Subsequently, BJP leaders staged a sit-in and raised slogans against the state government. They demanded that Vadra leave Sawai Madhopur.
Earlier in the day, BJP state president Satish Poonia met the girl and her family members at the J K Lone Hospital.
The girl was missing from her house for several hours before she was found injured on the road, the police had said.
Around 150 CCTV cameras in the area where she was found were being examined, they had said.
