Mangaldai, Oct 25 (UNI) The two rape victims of Assam's Udalguri district, allegedly molested by CRPF jawans, were today re-examined by a team of doctors from AIIMS after the first test conducted by doctors at Mangaldai proved negative.

The two-member team from the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) arrived here at the Mangaldai civil hospital and re-examined the victims.

The victims were brought to Mangaldai from bordering Udalguri district for the test.

The AIIMS team conducted a thorough test and also referred to the results of the previous one before handing over a sealed report to the police authorities of Udalguri.

The details of the report have not been disclosed yet.

The re-examination was ordered following allegations of tampering with results of the first test that proved, no rape had taken place.

Two Bodo women had filed a case on October 20 alleging that they were raped by CRPF jawans at Bhalukbari village in Udalguri the day before, with the incident creating uproar in the district already reeling under communal tension.

A bandh was also observed on Thursday, with Bodo women protesting on the national highway 52 with their chests painted with 'Rape Us' slogans.

The government was forced to conduct an identification parade despite the negative medical report under tremendous pressure and three CRPF jawans were being detained at the Udalguri police station since Thursday.
