LUC­KNOW: A se­nior Ut­tar Pradesh po­lice of­fi­cer said on Thurs­day said the foren­sic re­port has re­vealed that the 19-year-old Hathras wo­man who suc­cumbed to her in­juries at a Delhi hospi­tal was not raped. Cit­ing a foren­sic sci­ence lab­o­ra­tory (FSL) re­port, ADG (Law and Or­der) Prashant Ku­mar said the cause of her death is an in­jury on the neck and trauma re­sult­ing due to it. “The FSL re­port says clearly that sam­ples did not have sperm. It makes clear that there was no rape or gang-rape,” Ku­mar said. “Even the wo­man in her state­ment to po­lice did not men­tion about rape but talked about ‘marpeet’ (beat­ing) only,” he said.
