Presence of semen not necessary in rape: UP Police to oppose the law

A 19yr old was brutally gang raped on September 14th 2020, at HATHRAS in Uttar Pradesh. She died by 29th September 2020. As she was sent to post-mortem, the forensic report, states that no semen was spotted so no rape took place.
As The UP police stated that no semen was spotted so no rape occurred then the senior advocates named Rebecca John and Vikas Pahwa stated that offence of rape doesn’t require presence of sperm and that it was a dying declaration. Some extraordinary evidence required to discredit the dying declaration said Advocate Rebecca John. He said that main prosecution is for murder as the victim was dead.
Prashant Kumar the Additional General of Police contradicted to the statements given by two criminal lawyers and stated in the press conference “as the forensic report states that no sperm was found in the samples taken from the girl and according to the report no rape took place”.
