Sumbal rape incident: Court issues notice to MS SKIMS over circulation of victim’s MR
Srinagar: The J&K High Court on Tuesday issued a notice to Director SKIMS to explain how medical report of Sumbal rape victim was leaked.
The court while taking up the matter today was informed by Petitioner Counsel Shafqat Nazir that SKIMS medical report of the victim child has been leaked on social media sites which shouldn’t have happened as the name and privacy of the child has been violated.
The medical report prepared in case of an alleged rape of a minor in Sumbal village of Bandipora district has stated that there was no sufficient evidence to confirm that the child has been sexually assaulted.
In its report submitted to police investigation officer, the authorities in SKIMS medical college Bemina have stated that, “There was no active bleeding from vagina or anus the mere presence of the faint blood stains and a macula papular rash on buttocks is not sufficient evidence to confirm that the victim has been sexually assaulted,” reads the medical report.
“Also the blood stains were not dry blood but faint stains only and could not be scrapped and sent for examination,” it reads.
The report states that the stains were very faint, almost negligible, and were not dried blood which could have been scrapped off from it and sent for analysis.
“There was no evidence of any trauma, injury, bleeding at or around the vaginal orifice or anal opening. Macula popular rash can arise due to multiple of reasons,” the medical repory reads.
Meanwhile, The petitioner Counsel Shafqat Nazir said that, social media users have themselves concluded that rape has not taken place.
