The 23-year-old woman who was found unconscious with injuries at the out-gate of the RTC complex on Monday gave a statement to the police that she did not know what had happened when she was unconscious due to weakness and “she is not sure” whether someone had made an attempt to rape her.
The woman who worked as lecturer in a college in Visakhapatnam till last week and who hails from Gummalakshmipuram in Kurupam mandal of Vizianagaram district, had travelled from Parvatipuram and reached Rajahmundry on July 20. After 48 hours she had regained consciousness, but failed to reveal any of her antecedents. On Wednesday, her mother, maternal uncle and cousin came to Rajahmundry Government Hospital where she was undergoing treatment. She broke down when they came to her bed, but did not say anything when South Zone DSP Sridevi Rao came to record her statement. Finally, when the DSP counselled her for more than one hour, she agreed to reveal her condition in writing.
When the police officials spoke to the woman’s mother and uncle, they said that she had failed in TET exam in January while all of her friends had succeeded. “This made her go into deep depression and she took treatment in Abhaya Hospital in Vizag for three months,” said her uncle.
Now, police are in a fix over registering a case. Women’s organisations and opposition parties are demanding filing of a case of suspicion, while the police are waiting for medical report.
