Minor girl rape: OHRC asks for medical report today

Bhubaneswar: The Odisha Human Rights Commission asked the superintendent of Saheed Laxman Nayak Medical College and Hospital to personally appear before it on November 10 with the medical examination report of a minor girl, who was allegedly gangraped in October.

The acting chairperson of OHRC, Justice B K Mishra issued this direction to the superintendent of SLNMCH, while hearing a case in connection with the incident.

The minor tribal school girl was allegedly raped by four men on October 10 in Koraput district. She was admitted to SLNMCH.

The SLNMCH superintendent in his previous report to the commission had only cited that a team of doctors from Koraput and MKCG Medical College and Hospital, Berhampur, had examined the girl on October 10 and October 11. However, the commission had sought a detailed report which was supposed to be submitted today.

“The medical college hospital superintendent has not provided any details to the commission about injuries to the girl and her medical state,” said Biswapriya Kanungo, one of the petitioners.

Meanwhile, the additional DG of Human Rights Protection Cell (HRPC), M Pratap, has submitted his inquiry report to the commission. “We the petitioners are not informed about the HRPC investigation findings. The ADG, HRPC has requested the commission to keep his report confidential,” Kanungo said.

The district collector of Koraput, in his report, apprised the commission that the administration has provided Rs 10,000 to the victims family, and her grandmother is availing rations under the National Food Security Act.

  1. In a rape case medical exam is critical & details , simply visual exam is incomplete. Lots of microtrauma/microabrasions / microhematoma will be there. Morover the chemistry of groin /vulva /vagina gets changed simple visual /hand based exam will not give any result.Body will also have lots of microtrauma will be there If we use modern technology THERMOGRAPHY Camera we can get lots of information of microtrauma/microabrasion etc.
