AIIMS to verify Soni Sori's torture claim

Amid allegations that foreign bodies were thrust into her private parts, the Supreme Court on Wednesday directed the AIIMS to medically examine alleged Naxal sympathiser Soni Sori to treat her and ascertain the charges. A Bench of Justices Altamas Kabir and J. Chelameswar asked the director of the All India Institute of Medical Sciences to render her all medical assistance and submit a report before July 10. Sori is the superintendent of Jabeli Ashram for tribal children in Dantewada.  She had been arrested in Delhi on October 4, 2011 for being a suspected Maoist sympathiser.
Having faced police harassment for over a year while functioning in her government-appointed post, she was in Delhi at that time to file a complaint against the Chhattisgarh police and expose them in the media.  Fearing torture at the hands of Chhattisgarh police after her arrest, she had appealed to the Delhi high court to keep her in custody in Delhi and not send her to Chhattisgarh, but her plea was rejected. Subsequently, she was brutally tortured by the Chhattisgarh police while she was in their custody from October 8-10,  2011; torture that has since been corroborated by an independent medical examination conducted by NRS Hospital and Medical College in Kolkata
