An identification parade of the accused in the Deralakatte kidnap and gang-rape case was conducted through a video conference on Thursday.

The victim is a resident of another state and so the court had decided to conduct the identification parade through video conference. According to jail sources, it is the first time in the history of the state that such a parade has been conducted through video conference.

Officials at the district jail had arranged the video conference on the jail premises and procedures were conducted in the presence of the tahsildar. The National Informatics Centre (NIC) had made arrangements to identify the accused.

District jail superintendent Ramesh P S said: “As the male victim is from another place, the identification parade was held on the jail premises only on January 30. However, the court had directed us to make arrangements for identification parade of the accused through video conference for the girl victim,” he said.

However, Ramesh denied to confirm or deny whether the girl has identified all the accused.

A gang of eight had allegedly kidnapped two medical students from Ayyappa Bhajana Mandir at Deralakatte on December 18.

They allegedly forced them to have sexual intercourse with each other and demanded huge money from them after shooting their video.
