The Home Ministry on Friday indicated that the CBI might take over the fresh case of abetment to suicide against disgraced former DGP SPS Rathore and the probe would also focus on the role of policemen who were involved in the alleged illegal detention and torture of the victim’s brother.
Highly-placed sources in the Home Ministry said Haryana Police would register an abetment to suicide case under Section 306 of IPC against Rathore who got away with a light sentence of six months imprisonment in the molestation case, which may be later transferred to CBI.
They said the probe would not only focus on Rathore’s role but also find out the role of policemen who helped the accused in the alleged illegal detention and torture of the victim’s brother.
Rathore on Friday got interim bail from a court in Panchkula in two fresh cases of harassment, which includes an attempt to murder charge, and doctoring of the victim’s post-mortem report.
The victim’s family was allegedly threatened by Rathore to cremate her on the day post-mortem was conducted after her suicide in 1993, they said.
