Abhaya case: CJM demands new charge sheet

sister abhaya caseThiruvananthapuram: The Thiruvananthapuram Chief Judicial Magistrate Court  found the internal organ examination of  sister Abhaya to be tampered with and has asked the investigating officials to file a new charge sheet, here today. A fresh charge sheet has been demanded against Dr Chitra and Dr Geeta for altering the results of the forensic chemical examination conducted on Sister Abhaya’s internal organs to make her alleged murder in 1992 appear as a suicide.

Judge Kamal Pasha ruled that the charge sheet submitted earlier in connection with the case cannot be accepted and that the former Magistrate who was later transferred had not signed the charge sheet. Another hearing will be held on September 15th. The Court also rejected the petitions filed by Dr. Chitra and Dr. Geeta requesting to annul the case against them.

Technical examinations revealed that doctors Chitra and Geeta, who were employed in the Chemical analysis laboratory, had made manipulations in the investigation repor. The former assistant chemical examiner of the Hyderabad Central Forensic Lab, Y Surya Prasad had earlier testified that the doctors had made corrections in 8 places in the register.

They have changed `positive’ to `negative’, he said. Surya Prasad had testified before the CJM court. The court had accepted this testimony. The court has asked the investigating officers to prepare separate charge sheets for the two clearly mentioning each ones offenses separately.
