Rajasthan minister rape case: Police submit progress report

Jaipur, Oct 3 : Police Thursday submitted to court the progress report on the investigation conducted so far into the case of rape registered against former Rajasthan minister Babu Lal Nagar, a lawyer said.

The court of additional chief metropolitan magistrate (9) had sought the progress report when the 35-year-old woman who accused Nagar of rape approached it Oct 1 demanding a fresh medical examination of the former minister, said the woman's lawyer Gyan Singh

"In compliance with the directions, the criminal investigation department - crime branch today (Thursday) submitted the progress report. In the report, the investigation officer apprised the court of probe conducted so far including recording the statement of the complainant before a magistrate," said Singh.

He added that the court has asked the investigation officer to submit another progress report on Oct 11.

"In the application, the rape victim has stated that she fears the blood samples taken during a medical examination may have been swapped in connivance with doctors," the lawyer said.

A medical examination was conducted on Nagar by a team of doctors at SMS Hospital Saturday. The doctors took his blood and semen samples for a DNA test.

Gyan Singh said the woman has demanded that the medical examination be conducted again in the presence of a magistrate.

Nagar, who was minister of state for dairy and rural industries, was accused by the woman of raping her at his government bungalow here Sep 11. He resigned Sep 20.
