Silchar: A day after angry protestors hit streets over alleged rape of 9-year-old girl in Assam, the preliminary medical report on Tuesday failed to confirm any sexual assault on the minor.

According to the police, the medical report confirmed that there was no injury in the girl’s private parts and there was no sexual attack on the girl.

"Preliminary medical tests conducted by the attending doctors at the Silchar Medical College Hospital have found no sign of rape or sexual assault on the girl, Cachar Superintendent of Police Digonta Bora said.

The final medical report of the tests carried out on the girl was, however, yet to come, Bora said.

The nine-year-old from Karimganj had gone to visit her grandfather in Pechachora village under Kallain police station of Katigora sub-division when she was kidnapped by two unidentified persons, with their faces covered, on Sunday evening, they said.

The girl was taken to a house in Section 9 of Kallain Tea estate and gang-raped before being abandoned in the tea garden outside the house.

Tea garden labourers returning from work found the girl crying and rushed her to a hospital in a critical condition from where she was later shifted to Silchar Medical College Hospital.

Injury marks were found on her neck and the police suspect that the rapists had attempted to kill her after raping her.

Angered over the incident, agitated villagers had demonstrated outside a local police station demanding immediate arrest of the perpetrators.
