Jamshedpur: The court of ADJ (2) Ashok Kumar issued a show-cause notice to the deputy commissioner of East Singhbhum on Wednesday to explain the delay in giving compensation to a rape victim of Baridih. It questioned the rationale behind the delay in giving the compensation despite the court ordering the administration to give the compensation within a month.
The victim’s advocate said the court had ordered to give Rs 75,000 to the victim as compensation. The court issued the show-cause notice after a petition was filed by the victim’s advocate to complain about the delay.
The victim had got pregnant after the rape incident. The accused was arrested. Later, High Court ordered the victim’s abortion.
