Charge Sheet in the infamous Ruchit Jain Murder case has finally been filed by the Sukher Police Station with the Special Judicial Magistrate. The FSL Reports (Chemical Analysts Report) which are five in number are expected to form significant ground for conviction of the accused Divya Kothari in the murder case.
The 141 page charge sheet, each page of which piercingly asserts details of the abuse and brutal acts committed by the accused on the victim, consists of five FSL (Chemical Analysis) reports, which consist of incriminating evidence against Divya. Police has presented challan under Sec 201, 302, 350 and 376/511 of he IPC against the accused.
Mangilal, the SHO at Sukher Police Station calls this as a very challenging case, since the accused Divya had made up lot many stories in order to lead the investigation astray and though there was enough circumstantial evidence available, the support provided by the FSL reports will go a long way in convicting the accused.
Details of the Five FSL Reports are as under:
Blood traces present in the fingernails of the victim match with the blood samples taken from the accused and blood traces taken from the scratches on the accused body match with the blood samples of the victim;
Traces of blood on the Clothes of the accused match with the blood samples collected from the victim;
Blood Traces found in the fingernails of the accused match with the blood sample of the victim;
Blood traces found on the vehicle of the accused, which he drove to 100ft road after the murder, match with Ruchita’s blood group and samples of blood taken from her body;
Handwriting on the note found at Divya’s house matches with Divya’s handwriting – in the note, which he wrote allegedly after committing the muder, mentions that “I have nothing to do with Ruchita aunty’s murder”.
The Charge sheet also mentions the presence of the photograph of the Turtle, which was allegedly taken at 9AM, in the victims flat, just before the murder took place. This confirms Divya’s presence in Ruchita’s flat at the time of the murder. Post the murder, the accused allegedly took along Ruchita’s cell phone with him, and whatever locations have been mentioned in his interrogation, were tapped for tower location of both the phones, which also matched.
Rajendra Prasad Goyal, SP, Udaipur, said, “The case has been registered under the Case Office Scheme, and despite the challenges, I will ensure that the accused is convicted. The Charge Sheet has been presented to the court, supported by solid evidence. Research and investigation have resulted in solid incriminating evidence and we will ensure that the accused is handed over his sentence at the earliest.”
It may also be noted that the Udaipur Bar Association had passed a resolution that none of the members will take up the case of the accused as Ruchita Jain was a member lawyer of the Bar.
The Turtle Story
As per the police, strict interrogation of Divya, revealed that he had developed an attraction for Ruchita, which led him to try and get closer to the victim. On being refused, Divya attacked her with a spanner that he took from a tool box present in the victims apartment and also covered her face with a pillow so that her screams could not be heard outside. He had also turned up the volume of the TV set so the other sounds could subside.
He also said that he used to frequently visit the victims house, have food together, play badminton and go out to birthday parties with her. This developed a strong affection for Ruchita in him. Here he also mentions that he used to go play with the Turtle at her apartment regularly.
The photograph of the turtle, taken at the time of the murder, incriminates the accused significantly, and proves that he was of able mind and in his senses at the time of the murder.
Though a lot of stories and deliberations have been made on part of the accused, the scheme of things and the effort and time taken to prepare the report with all supporting evidence, motive, presence of accused, mobile location, etc. go a long way in substantiating a solid case against the accused.
