The Delhi Police on Friday said they would proceed in accordance with the directions of the Supreme Court in connection with allegations made by a former law intern against a retired judge. If the girl herself came forward to lodge a formal complaint, an FIR would be registered.
The New Delhi Police opened a preliminary enquiry into the charges made by the victim on her blog of November 6 after a former Dean of Law Faculty lodged a complaint.
“In response to some emails we had sent urging her to join investigations, the victim conveyed that she would not join any parallel inquiry before the committee set up by the Supreme Court submits its findings. So the name of the accused person being made public will have no bearing on our investigations at this stage. We will wait for the final report,” said Deputy Commissioner of Police (New Delhi) S.B.S. Tyagi.
Plea to record statement
In a letter to the Station House Officer of Tilak Marg police station, Prof. S.N. Singh requested him to record the statement under Section 164 of the Criminal Procedure Code (admissible as evidence in the court) on October 18 when she was expected to come to Delhi.
