Visakhapatnam: The 13 police personnel who were accused in the rape case of tribal women of Vakapalli underwent a potency test conducted by a team of government doctors here on Wednesday in the city.
The potency test was conducted after a petition was filed by the special public prosecutor Sunkara Rajendra Prasad in the Vakapalli gang-rape case. The Special Court judge for SC and ST (POA Act) cases O V Nageswara Rao has granted permission to conduct potency test on the accused policemen.
Even the potency test supposed to conduct on November 30, it was delayed due to some reasons in getting the certified copies. The team comprising endocrinologist Dr K L Subrahmanyam, Urologist Dr Ch Subba Rao and psychiatrist Dr Suresh Kumar conducted the potency test on the police personnel in King George Hospital.
It may be recalled that 11 tribal women of Vakapalli tribal hamlet under G Madugula mandal in Visakhapatam Agency were allegedly gangraped by the Commandos of Greyhounds (the AP’s elite anti-Naxal force) on August 21, 2017 while they were conducting combing operations in the Agency.
Speaking to media, Resident Medical Officer at KGH, Dr KSLG Satry said that the officials had examined all the 13 police personnel and the report will be submitted to the court in a sealed cover.
