Upon directions of the Hon’ble High Court of Karnataka, A. Pushpa filed a rape case against Lenin Karuppan.
The Hon’ble High Court of Karnataka disposed the petition WP 10815/2011 filed by Pushpa, against ruthlessly being denied justice by the police in her complaint against her attacker Mr. Lenin Karuppan filed on 30 December 2010, on charges of rape, extortion and threat to kill her. The police, however, had closed the case with a perfunctory investigation which included just asking Mr. Lenin whether he was there at the time of the incident, implicating being paid well to do so. Pushpa took up this grievance of outright being denied justice to the Hon’ble High Court of Karnataka where she filed a writ petition WP 10815/2011.
The Hon’ble High Court of Karnataka had heard the petition last week and directed the police to come to respond in person to the Court on 12 March 2013. The police thereafter registered the complaint and FIR (First Information Report) in Cr. No. 0077/2013 at Bidadi Police Station, on 11 March 2013, for various offences under Sections 511, 506, 376, 384,342, 354 of IPC, and Section 3(10) of the SC and ST (Prevention of Atrocities) Act.
Only on 22 Jan 2018, that is after 4 years 10 months, a ray of hope and justice was seen :
The copy of the original FIR, filed on 11 March 2013
The order of the Hon’ble High Court of Karnataka.
