Rape of Minor in Kashmir: Allegation Which Sparked Protests Negated by Medical Report


On the evening of May 12 in Kashmir’s Bandipora area, when the news about the alleged rape of three-year-old girl broke, locals took to the streets in protest. On May 13, protests and clashes erupted across the Valley as people marched and demanded a death sentence for the accused. Dozens of youth were injured.  However, two weeks after the incident, the medical report by SKIMS medical college, Bemina, has found insufficient evidence to confirm that the child was sexual assaulted. SKIMS, in its report submitted to Jammu and Kashmir Police, has stated that there were no marks of injury on any part of the body, thus contradicting the claims of the girl’s mother. Making the case murkier, last week, the police said that the allegations of rape in the case had been proven and that a chargesheet would be filed soon. The accused, Tahir Mir, has already been booked under Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Section 3 and 5 and 376 A, B and 342 RPC. The rape accused, as per the victim’s family, allegedly committed the crime during iftar, when most of the villagers were at home or at the mosque. The mother, who found her daughter bleeding vaginally in a bathroom, said that she had handed over the blood drenched clothes of the girl to the Jammu and Kashmir Police at the time when the accused was arrested. The medical report, which is with The Wire, states that the actual source of bleeding could not be determined as there was no evidence of any injury around the vaginal orifice.
