Kolkata: The CBI on Tuesday has denied reports in a section of media alleging that the investigating agency found no evidence in 21 cases of rape and attempt to rape received from the NHRC.

“CBI strongly refutes the reports, published in a section of media alleging that CBI has found no evidence in 21 cases listed by NHRC relating to rape and attempt to rape which were mandated to CBI by the Calcutta High Court.
