A 28-year-old female officer of the Air Force (IAF), who accused the partner of rape, has made serious allegations. She has accused the doctors of doing a two-finger test to confirm the rape. Supreme Court has banned the two-finger test. Apart from this, the victim accused of tampering with evidence and adopting insensitive attitude during interrogation.

She also said that the college authorities told her that if she could bear the pain of the ankle injury (which she suffered hours before the alleged crime), she could also deal with the pain of seeing her rapist on campus.
The Indian Air Force declined to comment on the allegations. After being arrested by the local police, the 29-year-old flight lieutenant, his lawyer and the Indian Air Force on Monday argued in the Additional Women’s Court in Coimbatore that the civil police had no jurisdiction in the matter.
He demanded that the custody of the accused be transferred to the Indian Air Force for court-martial action. However, the court extended the judicial custody of the accused till September 30 and said it would decide on the jurisdiction of the case on that day.
