In a new revelation in the Kanjhawala case, the Delhi Police reveal the victim’s friend who accompanied her fled and went home.
Early in the day, in a new revelation in the Kanjhawala case, the Delhi Police claimed that the victim was accompanied by her friend during the time of the incident. The police, however, said her friend had left from the spot.
Delhi Commission for Women (DCW) chief Swati Maliwal has slammed Kanjhawala case victim Anjali`s friend, who allegedly ran away from the site after the horrific incident and did not report it to the police nor get help for her. She did not speak to anyone about the horrific mishap but instead went home.
Demanding a probe against her, the DCW chief took to Twitter and said, “Anjali`s friend is telling while sitting in the LIVE show how the boys ran over Anjali in front of her and this “friend” got up from there and went to her home. What kind of friend is this? She didn`t stop the boys, didn`t tell the police or any of Anjali`s relatives… went and sat in the house. This also needs to be investigated.”
The autopsy report of the deceased girl who died after her scooty was reportedly hit and dragged by a car has stated that the cause of death is shock and hemorrhage as a result of antemortem injury to the head, spine, left femur, and both lower limbs, Delhi Police said on Tuesday.
Injuries produced by blunt force impact and possibly with vehicular accident and dragging, police added. Sagar Preet Hooda, Special Commissioner of Police (Law and Order) said the postmortem of the victim was conducted by a three-member medical board in Maulana Azad Medical College (MAMC), New Delhi.
