While speaking to InUth, the District Child Protection Officer Alex Doley supported unconfirmed reports of Goswami’s arrest. Doley claims that the accusations against Goswami, who allegedly surrendered on Thursday morning, are false as medical tests came out negative for sexual assault. Reportedly, Doley also spoke to other inmates, who rubbished the allegations. “All the girls sleep in the same room together and they say that nothing happened,” Doley said.

Doley added that the girl has now been shifted to a government facility where she will receive counselling.
