Delhi Gang-Rape Victim's Statement Recorded Again
After controversy erupted over recording of the 23-year-old gangrape victim's statement, her fresh testimony was today taken by the metropolitan magistrate, police said.

"A fresh statement of the girl has been recorded by the metropolitan magistrate," a senior police official said.

Controversy erupted over the recording of the victim's statement after Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit complained to Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde that senior police officials "interfered" in the process and sought an enquiry.

In a letter to Shinde, Dikshit cited a communication to her by Deputy Commissioner (East) B M Mishra that Sub Divisional Magistrate Usha Chaturvedi claimed that three senior police officers had prevented the video recording of the victim's statement. It was also alleged that the police officers wanted the SDM to use a questionnaire they prepared.

It later turned out to be an open war between Dikshit and Delhi Police, who demanded a probe into the "leakage" of her letter to the home minister.

Delhi Police came out with a strong denial and also demanded a high-level probe into the "leakage" of Dikshit's letter to Shinde.

"We deny the allegations levelled by SDM Usha Chaturvedi.

"Delhi Police demands a high-level inquiry into the leakage of a top-secret letter written by the Chief Minister to media," Delhi Police spokesperson Rajan Bhagat said.

Sheila and Delhi police both are demanding high level inq. Because they know the fate of such inq, the TRAITOR ( this word is used by PM and HM on the floor of LS about 8 month ago) who leaked the General VK Sngh's letter yet could not be caught. They both know their efficiency/slavery level. A well planned DRAMA by delhi administration.

If the sub-divisional magistrate Usha Chaturvedi complained that senior police officials' interfered while she was recording the statement of the rape victim, Dikshit was quite right to bring it to the notice of the Home Minister. Why is the Police Comissioner so upset with her? Do the Delhi Police think they are above the law?

The second the Statement of the poor girl who is having 103-104 degree Temperature due severe virus in body ,her small intestine completely destroyed and still not out of danger has been recorded today in ICU .Why so many persons are allowed to enter in ICU where as victim should have been quarantined to protect her from more exposures to virus .

Politicians like Sonai ,Sheila and many more Politicians have visited her in ICU.

Girls life is important rather the Politicians' popularity hype.

Two statement in two days from the girl who is still not out of serious danger !!

What is happening and what about the human face of the Govt ??

Some body should file a PIL in SC to put some sense and shame in the Govt and Police .
