Forensic report rejects claim of semen-filled balloons being thrown at DU students

In February this year, a girl from LSR had narrated an incident on Instagram claiming that she and her friend were hit with semen filled balloons. 

No semen could be detected on the samples submitted in the case where two DU girls claimed that semen-filled balloon was thrown on them.

According to news agency ANI, a report by the Forensic Science Laboratory stated that no semen could be detected on the exhibit.

In February this year, a girl from LSR had narrated an incident on Instagram claiming that she and her friend were hit with semen filled balloons in Delhi's Amar Colony market.

"For the past eighteen years of my life, I had had the great PRIVILEGE of not having semen flung at me, and I hadn't even realised just what a fine life I had been allowed to live-Commuting on roads without having things thrown at me by groups of men! *gasp* imagine such a luxury!," the post read.

The post sparked outrage and authorities had to intervene. A police case was registered and samples were submitted for forensic tests.

Earlier this month, Delhi Commission for Women (DCW) sought a report on the action taken in the incident. DCW also urged Police Commissioner Amulya Patnaik to urgently form a task force to prevent crimes against women on Holi. The DCW stressed on the deployment of special police teams around girls hostels and paying guest (PG) accommodations in the city during the festival.
