In 2012, the medical reports of the alleged victim of rape were summoned by the USA Court (as she is a USA citizen) from the University of Michigan hospitals where she had been undergoing treatment since at least 2004.
|“produce any and all medical records, reports, and test results from 2005 through 2010 regarding patient ArathiRao, D/O/B:12/23/1973, Address: 3118 Village Circle, Ann Arbor, MI 48108”|
But we had in front of us news reports that the alleged rape victim claimed to some sections of the Indian media that the medical records were false and fabricated.
So could the medical records be authenticated? Who would best know the veracity of the records – the doctor (personal physician as they are referred to in USA) who treated her.
We got access to the affidavit proof that the personal physician of the alleged rape victim had authenticated the medical records to be submitted to the Court as per the summons.
Now that the veracity of the medical report was established, we can see what the medical records have to say.
