After the woman’s family approached Chief Minister Chouhan on Friday, the charges of attempt to murder and attempt to rape were added.</p> <p>Responding to why there was a delay in pressing serious charges, the official stated that the medical report of the woman was being awaited. But the survivour has alleged that the police never brought the arrested man before her so that she could identify him, or provided her with his voice sample.</p> <h3><strong>Opposition’s Attack</strong></h3> <p>Congress is cornering the BJP government in Madhya Pradesh over the handling of the case. Former party president Rahul Gandhi took to Twitter and wrote, "Even after a month, the Bhopal rape victim is far from justice as the BJP always blames the victim for the rape and relaxes the proceedings which benefit the culprits". "This is the truth of the government’s ‘Beti Bachao’," he wrote.</p> <p>Meanwhile, amid the renewed attention to the case, the police assure that the probe is underway.</p>
