Victim Girl Arrested

The victim girl was arrested today by the Kerala state police in connection with her attempt to commit suicide in the year 2000. The police explained that she was in hiding all these years and hence the delay in her arrest.

This was in fact a contradiction of facts since she was under police protection all these days and the police had arrested her from her house which was under police protection.

The incident was reportedly planned by the accused minister and she was threatened during her arrest by the police that she reverted from her statement saying a social activist had compelled her to level the charges against the minister.

Regina's case has striking similarities with that of Zahira Sheikh of the Best Bakery Case, who said she had made accusations against those who allegedly killed her father and 14 others in Gujarat in 2002 at the instance of social activist Teesta Setalvad.

Any way the harm has been done as the government spokesmen have started saying that someone who keeps changing her statement cannot be believed.
