KOCHI: The Kerala High Court on Tuesday asked the police to produce the medical report of Swami Gangeshananda whose genitals were cut off by a woman while he allegedly attempted to rape her.
The court issued the directive when his bail petition came up for hearing. The court adjourned the hearing of the plea to July 26. The petitioner’s counsel said as Gangeshananda is undergoing treatment at Thiruvananthapuram General Hospital, there may be chances of him getting infected while in the ward. If granted bail, he could be shifted to a pay ward so as to avoid infection. The petition said the victim’s statement is unbelievable.
The Crime Branch is investigating the case and there is no material evidence to support the allegation he committed rape. The only evidence against the accused is the FIR and the statement before the Magistrate. As the allegation in the FIR is disowned by the informant, there is no material evidence to implicate the accused.
