 SHILLONG: Documents procured through the Right To Information (RTI) Act have revealed that police had ineptly handled the Ampati twin rape case, the Civil Society Women’s Organisation said on Sunday.

Documents provided by South West Garo Hills Superintendent of Police, R Muthu to the CSWO have revealed that the police never arrested the accused Sub-Inspector for the rape of the two minor sisters.

The documents also reveal that police did not even register a rape case at the Ampati police station and interestingly, no official order was issued to shift Islam from Ampati to Tura.

The RTI documents also reveal that Islam was a temporary appointee as per the declaration of the Medical Officer of Police Hospital, Shillong. Islam was appointed as constable on a temporary basis on August 1, 1983, the documents state.
