Haryana police are understood to have quizzed Veena who, the family of the molestation victim claim was their domestic help.
Veena is the woman whom the victim’s family claim to have been their domestic help in the 1990s and accused former DGP S.P.S. Rathore’s lawyer wife Abha Rathore has accused of being the second wife of the victim’s father.
“We have quizzed and examined all the important witnesses in connection with the case. There have been several allegations that have been levelled and we have to get to the bottom of the truth,” head of Haryana police’s seven-member Special Investigation Team, S. S. Kapoor said on Sunday.
The SIT was set up on December 30 in connection with the two fresh cases registered on the basis of complaints of the molestation victim’s father and brother against Rathore and others in connection with the incident.
Asked if Veena had also been questioned, Mr. Kapoor without divulging the names of those questioned, said, “All the important witnesses in connection with the case have been examined.”
He also claimed that the victim’s father and brother had so far not joined investigations despite repeated requests and notices sent to them by the SIT.
However, the sole eyewitness in the molestation case, a friend of the victim’s family, alleged that the Haryana police had not shown any “seriousness to arrest Rathore and was instead trying to save him.”
