Haryana Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda said on Tuesday that an impartial enquiry would be ordered into the case involving the former Haryana Director-General of Police S.P.S. Rathore, who has been convicted by a CBI court of molesting a 14-year-old girl in 1990. The victim committed suicide in 1993.
Talking to media persons at Khedar, near Hisar, Mr. Hooda said all aspects of the case were being legally examined. He asserted that his regime would ensure that the victim’s family got “justice.” The family would be given full protection.
There has been a clamour for revisiting the case to ensure that the former DGP is tried under Section 306 of the IPC (abetment to suicide) and action initiated against the people who shielded him and the policemen who obeyed his illegal orders.
