Even after five months, the Delhi Police have failed to solve any of the seven cases, including molestation and theft, filed by athletes during the Commonwealth Games.

The Delhi Police have admitted in an RTI reply that seven cases were brought by the Special Investigation Team and Crime Branch from Commonwealth Games police station and none of them have been solved.

"All seven cases are unsolved," the Delhi Police replied.

The cases mentioned by the Delhi Police include alleged molestation of an athlete in the Games Village by some unknown persons, the reply stated.

The case has been registered under section 342/509 of the IPC which relates to wrongful confinement and actions intended to outrage the modesty of a woman for which the punishment could be of one year.

The police also failed to recover money lost by athletes or allegedly stolen during their stay at the posh Commonwealth Games village.

Six complaints were filed by athletes of different countries in which they had alleged that money was either stolen from their rooms or it had gone missing but police failed to solve any of these cases, police said in an RTI reply to activist Subhash Agrawal.
