Murder charge not in rape chargesheet? Police deny report

January 05, 2013 21:07 IST
The Delhi police on Saturday denied reports that murder charge had not been incorporated in the chargesheet of the gang-rape case of a 23-year-old girl.

"This is an absolute lie and an attempt to create a sensation out of nothing. Section 302 of IPC is very much in the chargesheet," Delhi Police Commissioner Neeraj Kumar told PTI.

Metropolitan Magistrate Namrita Aggarwal took cognisance of the chargesheet saying a case of various offences, including those of murder and gang-rape, are made out against the accused and issued warrants for production of the accused on Monday.

"I have perused the chargesheet and other documents. Prima facie offences under sections, 302 (murder), 307 (attempt to murder), 376 (2)(g) (gangrape), 377 (unnatural offences), 395 (dacoity), 396 (murder in dacoity), 394 (hurting in dacoity), 201 (destruction of evidence), 120-B (conspiracy), 34 (common intention) and 412 (dishonestly receiving stolen property) of the Indian Penal Code are made out against all the accused," the metropolitan magistrate said.
