BENGALURU: A medical examination of a 4-year-old girl who was allegedly sexually assaulted at a private school showed there was no sexual intercourse, said police who received the medical report.
However, the police who had registered a case under the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act (POCSO) have decided to continue the investigation.  A senior police officer said, “We have received the complete medical report where doctors gave their opinion based on both FSL and medical examination reports. The report says no sexual intercourse. But our investigation will continue as the child may have been subjected to other sorts of sexual abuse.”

The police who are investigating the case have verified CCTV footage from six days before the incident was reported.“As we couldn’t gather any evidence from CCTV footage, FSL and medical reports, we will now need to speak to the child for further investigation,” the officer added.

Meanwhile, investigating officers have not yet spoken to the child directly. “All these days, we were only able to communicate with the child through her mother. Now we need to speak with the child,” the officer said.On September 12, the parents of the 4-year-old girl studying at a private school located at T Dasarahalli filed a police complaint alleging that their daughter had been sexually assaulted.
