GOANEWS DESK, PANAJI | 10 June 2013 22:09 IST

Nearly five-month old case of a rape on a six-year old girl in Vasco has been handed over to the Central Bureau of Investigation.

A government communiqué today stated that the order has been to the Delhi Special Police Establishment under Section 6 of the Delhi Special Police Establishment Act to exercise their powers all over Goa.

The rape case had rocked the whole state as a six-year old student was raped in a toilet of a reputed school from Vasco on 14 January.

In spite of all the efforts, the crime branch of Goa police could not crack the case in last four and a half months.

There were series of protests by the civil society and even the headmistress was suspended, alleging that she had tried to destroy the evidence by washing the traumatized victim and her dress.

 

The case was also referred to the Goa Children’s Court with allegations that the close kin of the headmistress was involved in the rape.

However, the police even through the Interpol confirmed that the alleged nephew of the headmistress had not entered Goa from Dubai during this period.

The police had even released sketches of the suspect, after talking to the victim girl as well as the teachers and the headmistress, who had seen one suspect in the school premises on that day little before the rape incident had occurred.
