COIMBATORE: The Child Welfare Committee (CWC) has found discrepancies in the versions of the police, the two rape victims of the Pollachi home run by a church and another boy inmate.
Child protection officers, speaking to Express, said that the two victims would be produced before the CWC next week and their version as well as that of the other children at the home would be collected, corroborated and cross-checked.
Officials said that there were discrepancies between the statements of the children. The eldest inmate of the home, aged 13, had said that he had seen a trio entering the home, though cops have identified and claimed that the crime had been committed only by one person. “We need to talk to the kids and inquire into the sequence of events that happened on the fateful day, as there are discrepancies between cops’ version and that of the kids,” said a CWC official.
Meanwhile, medical tests were conducted on the two rape victims at the CMCH here on Wednesday. Doctors at the Pollachi GH, where the two girls were admitted, on Tuesday, said that they had become normal and could be discharged.
