Delhi police faces court's ire for failing to file CFSL report

Press Trust of India  |  New Delhi 

A city today took strong exception to Police's failure to file forensic reports on time "despite repeated warnings" and asked why cost should not be imposed on it for such inaction.

Additional Sessions Judge D K Sharma made the observation while hearing arguments on charge against JNU student Anmol Ratan for allegedly raping a 28-year-old fellow student at a university hostel.



It noted that in its charge sheet filed last month, the prosecution had not included the CFSL report, saying the police seemed to pay no heed for speedy trial.

"It has been noted time and again that the prosecution has been directed to obtain expert's opinion on time but charge sheet is being filed without it. On numerous occasions, the concerned investigating officers (IOs), SHOs, ACPs and DCPs (of some districts including south and south west) have been warned in this regard but it appears that they do not pay any heed for the sake of speedy trial...

"A show cause notice be sent to all the concerned IOs, SHOs, ACPs and DCPs as to why the cost should not imposed for failing to file forensic reports," the said, adding that a cost of Rs 10,000 will be imposed in future if such failure recurs.

The court, which was scheduled to hear Ratan's bail application, posted the matter for hearing on October 17 after noting that counsel for the accused was not present before it.

While filing the final report last month, the police had told the that call details of the woman and the accused, fingerprint report and other CFSL reports pertaining to the case were pending and the agency was likely to file a supplementary charge sheet in the matter.

The police had chargesheeted Ratan for allegedly raping the victim. According to the charge sheet, the victim had written on her social networking website's wall that she wanted to watch a movie and had asked if anyone had its CD. Ratan had then messaged her saying he had a copy.

Later, he picked her up on August 20 on the pretext of giving her the CD, took her to Brahamputra Hostel where he stayed, allegedly offered her a spiked drink and raped her, the charge sheet said.

Ratan is currently lodged in judicial custody and his bail application is pending before a sessions court.
