VASCO

The JMFC Court granted four weeks to the father of the minor girl, who was allegedly raped inside the school premises on January 14, 2013, to file a reply.  
The CBI had moved an application before the JMFC Court at Vasco in September last year seeking closure of the case, as there was no breakthrough.  
When the application of the closure of case came up for hearing before the court, the victim’s father, who was present in the courtroom, told the judge that the CBI had handed over the case papers only a few minutes before the hearing, and that, he wanted at least four weeks to file the reply.  
Judge Durga Madkaikar granted a period of four weeks to the father to reply in the matter and adjourned the case to March 30.  
Mormugao Police had registered the case under Sections 447, 376 and 201 of IPC and Section 8(2) of the Goa Children’s Act, 2003, and Section 3 (a) punishable under Section 4 of Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act, 2012.  
With the police failing to get any breakthrough in the case and following stiff opposition from citizens, NGOs and political parties, the State government decided to hand over the case to the CBI. 
The case was handed over to the CBI after almost four months of the offence. However, the CBI failed to nab the culprit and as it 
could not proceed further with the investigation, and sought permission from the court for its closure.
