Vijayawada, Mar 12 (UNI) The mother of B-Pharmacy first year student Ayesha Meera who was allegedly raped and murdered in a ladies hostel on December 27 last, today demanded narco-analysis tests on top city police officials to find out the truth in the case.
Talking to mediapersons here, Shamshad Begum accused the police of total failure in nabbing the culprits even after the passage of 74 days.
She also wanted a second post-mortem on her daughter's body as the police allegedly tampered with the evidence.
Charging the police officials with leaving the real culprits, she said the case could be cracked only if the police conducted investigations without succumbing to political pressure.
Meanwhile, father of 'Laddoo' alias Guvvinder Singh, who was accused of being involved in the case, claimed the police offered him Rs 20 lakh through an advocate to agree his son had committed the crime.
Amarjit Singh said his son was not in the state on the day of the murder and he was being made a scrapegoat.
Meanwhile, The Movement for Peace and Justice took out a silent rally and staged a dharna before the city Police Commissioner's office demanding stern action against the culprits. It later submitted a memorandum to Police Commissioner C V Anand City West Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP)L Vijayakumar speaking at a news conference this evening condemned the allegation levelled by Amarjit Singh saying they were baseless.
He listed the offences of 'Laddoo,' who was allegedly involved in 64 cases, mostly molestation and dacoties.
Mr Vijayakumar said in some cases 'Laddoo' was jailed while in others, he was under investigation.
After obtaining permission from the Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Court, 'Laddoo' was taken into custody and various tests were conducted in Hyderabad to ascertain if he was involved in the case.
''If necessary, second post-mortem will be conducted on Ayesha's body as demanded by her mother earlier in the day. The culprits would be brought to book at the earliest,'' the ACP assured.
