Chandigarh, Dec 29 (ANI): Ruchika's family lawyer has filed two First Information Reports (FIRs) against former Haryana DGP SPS Rathore, who has been charged for allegedly molesting teenager Ruchika Girhotra, a promising young tennis star in 1990.

The lawyer claimed that the first FIR has been filed for forging documents like the inquest report and the other for illegal detention of Ruchika's brother Ashu, who was kept in illegal detention at the behest of Rathore and given tortures.

A Public Interest Litigation (PIL) has also been filed on Tuesday asking for action to be taken against all those who tried to protect Rathore; including Sacred Heart School, where Ruchika studied. The school has been asked to explain the reasons for expelling her.

Rathore was then an Inspector General of Police and the head of the Haryana Lawn Tennis Federation.

CBI's Special Magistrate J S Sidhu sentenced 67-year-old Rathore to six months rigorous imprisonment (RI) during an in-camera proceeding and imposed a fine of Rs 1,000, but Rathore got bail immediately.
