The south Delhi police are sending a team to Manipur to meet and record the statement of the NGO activist who accused Khurshid Anwar of allegedly raping her and subjecting her to unnatural sex after a party at his home on September 12. The team will leave for Manipur on Friday.
The preliminary investigation into the alleged suicide of Khurshid revealed that he had written a note in Hindi on his computer that talks about how he met the woman and what exactly had happened during the party.
"The note is not written in continuation and it has been found that the last update was made hours after the case was filed against Khurshid at the Vasant Kunj North police station following the direction of the National Commissioner for Women (NCW). The note nowhere states the reason that actually made Khurshid take the extreme step.
The NCW wrote a letter to us and the woman's complaint which was in the form of a video CD was also attached to it," said a senior investigating officer.
On Thursday, several members of the NGO and the woman activist's friends were questioned in connection with the case. Since some of them were present at the party, investigators questioned them to know what exactly had happened during and after the party.
According to the investigating officer, Khurshid was at his friend Azhar's house in Dwarka when the news related to the incident and the FIR that was registered against him a day before was shown on a Hindi news channel.
"His friends told us that Khurshid got upset and depressed after watching the news. He left Azhar's home early in the morning without informing anybody. He left his two mobile phones and his house keys at Azhar's flat. Nobody knows how Khurshid arrived at his home in Vasant Kunj because his car was with his driver," added the officer.
