Mastermind Sanjhi withdrew money to bribe police

Srinagar, July 31 (KMS): In occupied Kashmir, the supplementary charge-sheet has revealed that Sanjhi Ram, the mastermind of rape and murder of Kathua minor girl Aasifa had tried to bribe police to save the culprits.

The new findings were reported in a supplementary charge-sheet filed by the Crime Branch of Kashmir police before Pathankot District and Sessions Judge, Tejwinder Singh.

The findings supported by call detail records, bank transactions and crucial scientific evidence further implicated the culprit involved in the rape and murder of the eight-year-old nomadic Muslim girl, early this year.

Quoting expert opinion and the other evidence, the charge-sheet establishes that the victim was overdosed with a cocktail of sedatives during her captivity, rendering her incapacitated to resist sexual assault and murder.

As per the fresh police investigation, the analysis of retrieved mobile forensic data of the cell-phones used by Vishal, the son of the mastermind Sanjhi Ram, reveals incriminating chat details. “As a result of his guilty conscience, Vishal was apprehensive about his arrest in the case well before the investigating agency had taken any step in this regard against him,” reads the charge-sheet.

Further pointing to his culpability, there are no calls between him and his parents between January 12 and January 17 – the important dates concerning the case. This is unusual as according to the charge-sheet the CDR (call detail record) analysis reveals that in past Vishal has remained in constant touch with his family.

The call analysis also shows that the culprits Deepak Khajuria (Special Police Officer), Sanjhi Ram, Tilak Raj (Head Constable), Anand Dutta (sub inspector), Surinder Kumar (SPO) and Vishal were in touch with one another during the days of the crime as well as after the crime was exposed and handed over to the Crime Branch for investigation.

The charge-sheet also establishes the involvement of Surinder Kumar (SPO) by proving that he too was in touch with the culprit Deepak Khajuria and Tilak Raj.

Sanjhi Ram, the charge-sheet states, had made huge withdrawals of money from his two bank accounts to bribe the police officials to save the culprits.

The fresh police investigation has also revealed how SI Anand Dutta directed Village Defence Committee members to make false statements before the investigating officer of Crime Branch that they were continuously searching for the girl between January 12 and January 17.
