Ruchika Girhotra case: Ex-Haryana cop SPS Rathore’s conviction confirmed by supreme court


NEW DELHI: Former Haryana police boss SPS Rathore, held liable of attacking adolescent Ruchika Girhotra who commited suicide in 1993, won't need to backpedal to imprison, the Supreme Court said today. 

Mr Rathore will be a liberated person yet with the stain of conviction. The court affirmed his conviction yet said he won't need to invest any more correctional facility energy. 

Mr Rathore has burned through six months in prison. 

The previous cop was indicted 2010 for attacking 13-year-old tennis player Ruchika in Panchkula close Chandigarh in 1990. He was sent to six months in prison, which was reached out to year and a half by the High Court. 

Ruchika and her family were supposedly annoyed and oppressed after she whined to the police. She was removed from school and her sibling was accused of burglary. 

The youngster submitted suicide three years after the fact. 

Companions who have upheld the family through the case say the discipline ought to have been harder. "We regard the decision. I would have been more fulfilled on the off chance that he had served the whole 18 month prison term. Six months in prison was insufficient for the detestable wrongdoing," said Madhu Prakash, a family companion.
