Kakdwip women rally for police action after the gang rape and murder of a 16 yr old school girl

West Bengal, 24 Nov 2015

Three days after a 16-year-old school girl was gang-raped and killed in Kakdwip, a West Bengal district, police finally filed a complaint. The police move came after a public interest litigation was filed before the Calcutta High Court seeking a CID probe, and the victim’s family and locals staged demonstrations and refused to cremate the body accusing the police of refusing to register a rape case despite receiving a complaint.

THE 50 MILLION MISSING CAMPAIGN BLOG ON INDIA'S FEMALE GENDERCIDE

Gurdaspur, 31 Oct 2015,

In a case, like so many in India, Jaspinder Kaur, is said to have committed suicide due to dowry harassment. Her uncle said the in-laws had been demanding a car in dowry and used to beat her up.  She was married to Gurmukh Singh, a resident of Kang village, three years ago. Her husband went abroad recently. Police say, unable to bear the harassment, she ended her life by hanging herself from the ceiling fan. Based on the complaint, police have registered a case against her father-in-law Baldev Singh and mother-in-law Gurmeet Kaur, who are absconding. Many dowry related murders, are often staged as suicides and with shoddy police work, these cases are rapidly dismissed as suicides or accidents.

However, was there an attempt to protect him from a gang rape trial where the sentencing would be harsher if convicted? Besides Chander, two other Water Board officials identified as Ramesh Thakur and Praveen Bhargava were also accused by the woman of raping her. But the court discharged them by observing that the evidence and records produced before the court only make a case against Chander.

“They are discharged of the offence punishable under Section 376 (2)(g) (gang rape) of the IPC, under which they have been summoned,” said Additional Sessions Judge Sanjiv Jain.
