Now that the girl is 20 and with the trial, the advocate has made an application on behalf of the father and daughter. The application along with the 5 accused adds the three cops into the list as well.

The names of the three policemen are police inspector (EOW) Jaywant Shinde-then an assistant police inspector at Amboli police station; Vakola police inspector (crime) Vivek Shinde, who was then an inspector; and Janita Bhonsale who was then a constable.

These three cops had thwarted all attempts by the father to file an FIR. They were joined by 2 alleged rapists, brother of main accused and 2 local youths and they were pressurising the minor to marry the rapist.

The girl recounts the events of the police station from 2013. When she came to file a complaint, she was told that she should marry the rapist. That way the child would get a father’s name to carry along. Also, the family would buy her a hut and take care of all the expenses of the child.

In 9th July 2014, the HC had set up a Special Investigation team. Then in May 2018, the case had been presented at the special POCSO court. Now, the cops who had denied all allegar=tions have been summoned by the court on the 10th of June.
