Mumbai: The state women’s commission (SWC) Saturday asked the state CID to form a special investigation team (SIT) to take over the probe into the Chunabhatti gang rape case.

The commission instructed police protection for the victim’s brother and an inquiry against a police inspector of Chunabhatti police station and a doctor from Ghati hospital, Aurangabad, for dereliction of duty.

 

SWC chairperson Vijaya Rahatkar, who visited the victim’s family at Chunabhatti police station, said, “As per the family’s demand, the case will be handed over to the CB-CID team.

The team will appoint a SIT team for the inquiry. The victim’s brother, who is living in the Lal Dongar area of Chunabhatti will get police protection.” Police commissioner Sanjay Barve, additional commissioner of police Lakhmi Gautam, and deputy police commissioner Shashi Meena were also present at the time.

After the victim’s family complained about the misbehaviour of the lady police inspector at Chunabhatti police station during primary investigation, the SWC instructed an inquiry against her.

 

The commission also ordered an inquiry against the doctor from Ghati hospital after the family complained that he, too, misbehaved with them. The victim’s post-mortem — to be carried out at Ghati hospital —was allowed only after SWC intervention.
