Mumbai, March 9: New revelation of forensic report says the three minor siblings in the infamous Bhandara rape case were nor raped. Rather they were thrown into the well due to which they died. The forensic report contradicts what was earlier stated in the post-mortem.

According to the post-mortem report girls were raped and murdered and thrown into the well. A forensic expert told media that, "as per my investigations, the girls bore no external injuries and their clothes and jewelry etc were intact."

"There were no signs of poisoning or strangulation," he added

Earlier it was found that autopsy in the case was mishandled and fingernail clippings and hair samples of the girls, which are required for cases of suspected sexual abuse, were not collected.

The post-mortem was said to be not correctly done. Members of the autopsy team alleged that the police had pressured them to hurry with their work. But, till now, investigation agencies involved in solving the case are clueless about the culprits, who committed the heinous crime.

Nobody has been arrested in relation to the case.

The three minor sisters, aged 11, 8, and 6 were said to be lured with food by the culprits. The three girls went missing on February 14 from their village Murwadi near Lakhni taluka in Bandara district, 65 kilometres from Nagpur.

After remaining missing for two days, the bodies of the girls were found dumped in a well near the village. Preliminary post-mortem report has confirmed that the girls were raped before being murdered.

The single mother of the victims has blamed the police for the tragedy. "The first day when we filed the complaint, the police didn't act on it. Had they looked for the girls, my girls would have been found. This is nothing but negligence," she said.
