palathayi-case-

KOCHI: The Crime Branch team investigating the Palathayi sexual abuse case has informed the High Court that the victim's statements are not believable as she has the habit of telling lies. A report regarding this was submitted to the court on Saturday. The report was submitted following a petition filed by the victim's mother against the bail granted to accused K Padmarajan.
According to the Crime Branch, the report was prepared on the basis of the findings made by the counsellor of the Social Justice department regarding the girl's peculiarities. The counsellors found out that the girl was facing sleeplessness and personality disorders, the report stated. It also stated that her statements need to be analysed psychologically. The girl had stated that she was sexually abused between January 15 and February 2. The victim's statements are not completely believable as she is facing severe mental stress, the report added.

Earlier, the Thalassery POCSO court had granted bail to Padmarajan as he was not charged under POCSO act. Following this, the petitioner asked on what basis did the POCSO court consider the case when the accused was not charged under the POCSO act. She also said that the medical examination report and witness statements clearly show that the girl was sexually abused. She added that the investigation team filed the final report by ignoring these two factors.
