New Delhi
. The Supreme Court acquitted the man accused of raping and killing a six-year-old girl and acquitted him by waiving the death sentence awarded by the Bombay High Court. The court said in the judgment that there is no direct evidence against the accused.
In a three-judge bench, Justice Sanjay Karol, while giving the verdict, said that the police based their investigation on his DNA test and this DNA sample was also taken from the accused after more than a month. It was not told who took this sample. Other samples for FSL test were also sent late. The police did not even reply to this in the report. It was not mentioned in the police report whether the sample was taken by the medical staff or the paramedical staff. At the same time, the investigating officer in this case was also changed six times, but no reason was mentioned in the report about it. The police caught Jhanak Kevat only because he lived in the next chawl. Two more of his companions used to live in this trick. The police did not interrogate him. The bench said that the police have failed to put together the entire story
