Bangalore Sessions court today rejected Pascal Mazurier’s plea to cancel all charges against him. Judge Shubha Gowdar in her order stated that there is sufficient evidence for framing charges against the French national who has been accused of raping his then three-and-a-half-year-old daughter two years ago.

Pascal Mazurier works for the Ministry of External Affairs, France and is posted at their consulate in Bangalore. Mazurier’s Indian wife Suja Jones filed a police complaint against him after her daughter’s medical examination confirmed rape.

The court will frame charges against Mazurier by 24th January.
