Dilip Ghosh, The lawyer of the gangrape accused simply refused to believe the statement of the girl, saying that it was not possible for a woman to be raped by 13 men and then walking freely. He further sought the medical reports of the girl as he doubted that a girl could survive even after being raped by 13 men.
"The truth behind this so-called allegation of gang-rape must be unearthed. Is it possible that a girl, who has been gang-raped by 13 men, gets up and walks away from the spot? Now, the girl is supposedly in the hospital. So, I asked the court for allowing us to have the medical reports of the girl," said Ghosh.
Meanwhile, the Supreme Court took a suo motu cognizance of the Birbhum gangrape case and issued a notice to the West Bengal government in this regard on Friday. The district judge of Birbhum has also been directed to visit the spot and file a report within a week. The court will hear the case on January 31. Earlier the local court sent the 13 accused in the gangrape case to 14 day jail custody.
