The team probing the case is likely to submit the chargesheet in the case this week. The status report is to be submitted today.

New Delhi: The Jammu & Kashmir police crime branch is said to have gathered clinching evidence against those arrested for the gruesome rape and murder of eight-year-old in Kathua district.

As the investigation nears its conclusion, police sources said that the prima facie evidence of sexual assault in the initial post mortem report such as bloodstained discharge in the victim’s genitals has been corroborated by the histopathology report, which has also indicated damage to the uterus.

This, the sources said, is clinching evidence that the victim was brutally raped.

The post-mortem report had also indicated that she had died due to asphyxiation, corroborating the police’s claim that she was strangled with her shawl.

ThePrint reported Sunday that the DNA sample of a hair strand found at the same site where the victim’s body was dumped had matched that of the juvenile who was allegedly involved in raping and strangulating the victim, proving his presence at the site.

Earlier, DNA test reports of hair strands found at the Devisthan, where she was held captive before she was killed, had matched with hers. The forensic report had indicated that she was kept in the Devisthan, which was under the custody of Sanji Ram — the alleged mastermind.

The victim’s viscera report also indicated the presence of the salt Clonazepam, indicating she was drugged before she was raped and murdered.

The team probing the case is likely to submit the chargesheet in the case this week. The status report on the case is to be submitted Monday.

The high court had asked the police to ascertain the age of the juvenile suspect, which has to be done by the chief judicial magistrate in this case. According to sources, the accused is likely to be declared a juvenile even as a medical board set up earlier by the court had declared his age to be 19.

The court had also directed the police to take custody of Sanjhi Ram and his son Vishal, who was also allegedly instrumental in the rape and murder of the 8-year old.

  1. This should be considered very serious ly. It shows which way our society is going and it’s a request to all media, people are now not taking you seriously because of your own authenticity. Plz publish good and fair news . You have to retain your faith again.

  2. I have to say that they are like wild animals so there is no place for them to live with human being.Hang them as soon as possible.

  3. Whoever is/are found guilty mist be tied to pole and burnt at stakes and in public. Again the juvenile will escape. our sistems are all screwed up.

  4. no chance to leave this people, kill them with stones instead of hanging. Whoever support this people even that people also should be punished as victims punished. Bloody human animals.

  9. Are there any online copies of post mortem report from Kathua Hospital, Forensic report by J&K and the latest forensic report by Delhi Forensic Laboratory ?

    Only if vaginal smear from victim matches DNA of accused can there actually be a case. I fear that the body may have to be exhumed if the case is transferred to CBI
