Identical Twins Charged With Rape Because DNA Test Can’t Tell Them Apart

22-year-old identical twins
Mohammed and Aftab Asghar have
appeared in court in connection
with the rape of a woman as they
cannot be distinguished by their
DNA.
They were bailed ahead of a
December trial but prosecutors
said it is possible ‘that only one of
the defendants faces trial’ over the
rape, which took place in
November two years ago.
Investigators are trying to establish
that one of the twins was not at
the scene when the crime took
place.
‘It is an unusual case. They are
identical twins. The allegation is
one of rape,’ said prosecutor
Sandra Beck, who has requested
more time to pursue particular
lines of inquiry.
Identical twins have the same DNA
but different fingerprints.
A similar case unfolded in France
earlier this year when 24-year-old
brothers, known only as Yohan and
Elwin, were arrested in Marseille
in connection with the rape of six
women aged between 22 and 76 as
police could not tell them apart
based on their DNA.
