The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has submitted evidence relating to the Badaun rape case in a POSCO court on 5 February.
The move was aimed at substantiating the closure report of the case which states that the two girls who were found hanging from a tree in May 2014 in Badaun were not raped or murdered.
According to The Economic Times, the CBI presented a 91-page file before the Additional District Court and the victim's side. The file includes a 34-page closure report which comprises of the post mortem analysis of the two girls, list of witnesses and their statements, DNA, forensic and status reports.
The next date of hearing is 11 February.
The closure report - filed in December, last year - suggested that the girls were not raped or murdered, but had committed suicide.
The CBI report says that no forensic or circumstantial evidence points towards the possibility of rape or murder as per the FIR that was lodged after the bodies of the girls were discovered hanging from the tree.
The CBI said that the girls had committed suicide out of the fear of vengeance as the older girl's affair with a local boy, Pappu Yadav (20), had been exposed.
The girls' families had mentioned in the FIR that both of them were kidnapped and murdered by five young boys of the village. The prime suspects were Pappu, Awadhesh and Urvesh Yadav (brothers) and constables Chhatrapal Yadav and Sarvesh Yadav.
The two girls belonged to the Dalit community, while the alleged perpetrators belonged to the Yadav community (upper class of society).
This incident had raised a huge outcry in India as well as abroad in view of the trend of brutal violence against the marginalized class.
The court had earlier not accepted CBI's closure report as it was seen as a cover-up to avoid international shame.
