#childmolestor | Sudeeksha Bhati case: SIT rules out molestation angle, confirms US scholar died in accident

The Bulandshahr Police probing the death of 19-year-old Sudeeksha Bhati, who died in a road accident on August 10, has ruled out the eve-teasing or molestation angle in the case and said she died after the bike she was travelling on collided with a bullet.

On August 10, Sudeeksha Bhati from Dadri, a scholar studying in Babson College in Massachusetts, lost her life in an accident while on her way to visit some relatives in Bulandshahr, hardly 35 kilometres away. Family members had blamed the accident on a couple of men saying they were allegedly eve-teasing her.

Coming under pressure, the UP Police had set up an SIT to probe the incident.

The SIT examined several CCTV footage and found out that the bike Sudeeksha was sitting on was being ridden by her cousin brother. The SIT also said that the bike Sudeeksha and her brother were travelling on collided with a bullet which was in front of them, following which Sudeeksha fell down and died. The investigation team has dismissed the family’s claims of eve-teasing.

Police said that Bulandshahr has over 10,000 bullets and all were checked. More than 100 CCTVs were analysed which led to the cops finding out that in every footage, the bullet in question, in this case, was always in front of the bike Sudeeksha and her cousin brother were travelling on, which clearly rules out the molestation angle.

Deepak, who was riding the bullet on the day of the accident, and Raju, the pillion rider, have been arrested, police said. Deepak told police that an auto had suddenly come in front of him, which prompted him to apply emergency brakes. Then the bike behind him, in which Sudeeksha was sitting, collided with the bullet, following which Sudeeksha fell and died.

To avoid the police, Deepak and Raju had got the bullet painted in military colour, changed its wheels, and removed many of its parts and hid them. Those who modified the bike have also confessed to have made the modifications, police said.
