Mr. Frank MBA, the Police spokesman, has told rape victims to hold the urge to take their bath instantly after they are raped.
According to him, taking a bath immediately may destroy valuable evidence needed to convict the rapist.
“Preserve all physical evidence after rape. Do not take your bath or change the clothes you wore during the rape incident.
“This may destroy essential components of evidence necessary to establish your case and convict the rapist.
“Preserve all torn materials such as underwears, bras or other apparels. Similarly, all blood stained or seminal fluid-stained items should also be preserved.
“Personal items belonging to the suspects picked up from the scene should also be preserved. Where possible, the scene of rape also known as the scene of crime should be preserved to enable investigators review it in its uncontaminated form.”
