The investigation so far conducted by the police has established that the girl who was briefly detained with Major Leetul Gogoi at a Srinagar hotel on May 23 is an adult. Since both of them are consenting adults, there is “no legal basis to register an FIR” into the incident as “nothing incriminating” against them has been found yet.
No legal basis for FIR
“The probe is on. But no FIR has been lodged as yet. There is no legal basis for registering an FIR as nothing incriminating has been found out yet. Both are consenting adults.” — Police official
Girl’s age confirmed from Aadhaar card
The girl had showed the Magistrate her Aadhaar card, which mentioned her year of birth as 1999. “The date of birth of the girl has been verified from other sources also and based on that it has been found that the girl is a major,” the police official said.

Major Gogoi is given clean chit by J&K Police that there is no FIR on him & that girl is not minor as she gave statement in court telling her birth year 1999. Major was defamed with an agenda.
