Gangrape: Murder charge missing on chargesheet cover
PRESS TRUST OF INDIA
New Delhi, Jan 5: Delhi Police today admitted in a court here that it had missed out on mentioning the most serious charge of murder in the chargesheet against the accused in the gangrape-cum-murder case and played down the mistake claiming "it was a typo error".
Police told Metropolitan Magistrate Namrita Aggarwal that it "has somehow missed out on mentioning section 302 IPC in the cover of the chargesheet. It is a typo error."
The typographical error was pointed out a few minutes after the court had taken cognizance of the chargesheet and noted that a prima facie offence under sections, 302 (murder), 307 (attempt to murder), 376 (2)(g) (gangrape), 377 (unnatural offences), 395 (dacoity), 396 (murder in dacoity), 394(hurting in dacoity), 201 (destruction of evidence), 120B (conspiracy), 34 (common intention) and 412 (dishonestly receiving stolen property) of the IPC is made out against all the accused.
"We have mentioned section 302 IPC in the chargesheet and also in the concluding portion where we seek their trial for the offences of murder and under other sections.
"We want to move an application to correct the mistake. It was a typographical error," Public Prosecutor Rajiv Mohan said.
The judge, however, said there was no need for any such application as the chargesheet will be read as a whole.
"Why do you want to move an application for this? You have written section 302 IPC in the chargesheet. It will be read as a whole. No need to change the cover," the judge said.
The five accused to be chargesheeted are Ram Singh, his brother Mukesh and their accomplices Pawan Gupta, Vinay Sharma and Akshay Thakur.
