LUCKNOW: Chief minister Akhilesh Yadav on Monday ordered CBI probe into the Mohanlalganj rape and murder case. The order came at the time when a PIL demanding CBI probe was being heard by the Lucknow Bench of the Allahabad high court. The family members of the victim were staging demonstration in the city for the past one week for the CBI probe into the case.
The body of the 35-year-old widow, mother of two children, was found naked with multiple injury marks on head, face and private parts in a primary school in Balsinghkheda village of Mohanlalganj in Lucknow on July 17. The victim was beaten brutally after she resisted the rape attempt, and later died of hemorrhage due to excessive bleeding.
The police initially said that it was a case of gang-rape and murder but later arrested a private security guard Ram Sewak and booked him for murder. The police said that the accused killed the woman after failing to rape her. However, on July 26, forensic report confirmed rape. It found traces of blood and flesh of more than one person found in the DNA of the victim.
There was also a controversy over number of kidneys in woman's body. While family members claimed that she donated a kidney to her husband in 2011. However, post mortem report said that there were two kidneys. The contradictions in police theory and family versions forced government to order a probe into anomalies in the post mortem report.
Family members also sat on dharna at GPO park demanding CBI probe. They challenged the report of the police which stated that the victim was killed by only one person and demanded justice for the woman. In the meanwhile, a PIL was filed in the high court for CBI probe.
