Kolkata: Alleged rape victim changes statement

Kolkata: The alleged victim of Sunday’s gangrape near Chetla bridge in the metropolis on Tuesday changed her statement after discrepancies were detected in it.

“There were several discrepancies in her statement, which we informed her about. She then told the police that she wanted to change her earlier statement,” Joint Police Commissioner (Crime) P K Ghosh told reporters.

The police found that the victim, a domestic help, was present at her place of work on Sunday, when she was gangraped after being picked up in a car, he said.

The police also found none in the locality, from where she claimed she was picked up, corroborated her statement, Ghosh said.

“She made a change in her statement, the reason for which is not known to us. But she did not tell us it was changed under duress,” he said.

Ghosh, however, did not specify what the change in the statement was.

To a question, Ghosh said that the police would proceed with the case in line with the changed statement.

A person was earlier arrested on basis of the woman’s complaint, he said.
