Cuttack: A writ petition was filed in the High Court on Wednesday, to quash the report submitted by Dr. Jyoti Panigrahy, Chairperson, State Commission for Women (SCW) on the Pipili gangrape case.
The petition was filed by Nishikanta Mishra, Secretary, Nationalist Lawyers Forum who urged the High Court to initiate contempt of court proceedings against Dr. Panigrahy.
“Jyoti Panigrahy is the Chairperson of the Commission which has other members too. How could she paint her personal opinion as the opinion of the Commission,” asked Mishra saying that the three-page report submitted by her to the Government has only her signature.
Adding more Mishra said, how Panigrahy could claim that she reached at the conclusion that the “girl was not raped” on the basis of medical reports and FIR, when the investigation into the matter is still going on and the State Government has announced a judicial enquiry in the matter.
