Fresh findings also revealed that the 14-year-old girl had travelled from her village to the city on her own, police said.

The case of a mentally-challenged girl, who was found bleeding and in a distressed state on a bridge in Alwar, has taken a political turn with the opposition BJP demanding a CBI inquiry into the matter. On the other hand, Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot urged all political parties to allow the police to complete the investigation “independently and expeditiously".

We demand a CBI inquiry to find out the truth. The police have taken a U-turn in the case. Crime in a peaceful state like Rajasthan has increased in the last three years, BJP state president Satish Poonia told reporters on Saturday. Targeting Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, who was in Ranthambore on a personal visit for a couple of days until Friday, Poonia said the Congress leader gave the slogan Ladki hoon, lad sakti hoon, in poll-bound Uttar Pradesh but ignored what happened in Rajasthan.

A medical report allayed apprehensions of rape of the intellectually-challenged girl, police said on Friday. Fresh findings also revealed that the 14-year-old girl had traveled from her village to the city on her own, they said. She was found bleeding on a bridge near Tijara Fatak on Tuesday night.

According to doctors, the girl’s rectum was displaced and she underwent a two-and-a-half-hour surgery. “Today, a team of experts have submitted a report to the police, in which they have said that injuries are not suggestive of any penetrative assault to the girl. So far, facts and technical information of medical experts suggest that there is no possibility of rape in the case," Alwar SP Tejaswani Gautam told reporters.

The SP said the police are yet to ascertain how the girl sustained such grievous injuries.Gautam told reporters that the girl travelled around 25 km from her village and reached Alwar city in an auto-rickshaw. She then walked towards the Tijara Fatak bridge “on her own".

“We have been able to track the girl’s movements and traced the auto-rickshaw in which she travelled with 8-10 other passengers. A team of forensic experts have not found anything suspicious in the auto-rickshaw. The driver was interrogated and her co-passengers will be questioned," the SP said. CCTV footage collected from different locations showed her walking in many areas of the city and on the bridge, but no camera showed her in a distressed condition on the bridge, police said.

Official sources said that the chief minister was constantly monitoring the case. “Jaipur Inspector General of Police visited Alwar on Wednesday and issued necessary directions to the district police. Required forensic and technical assistance was provided," a source said. Meanwhile, a child psychologist and experts also interacted with the girl. Police said they were preparing a questionnaire for the experts so they could seek answers from the girl.
