Women in #Calcutta in the Grip of Organized #Terror

Jan 5, 2014

Kolkata, West Bengal

A woman, returning home with her husband was sexually assaulted by four men in front of her house and her husband beaten up. After the family filed a police complaint, they have begun to receive threats from their attackers.   The woman’s father-in-law who lives with them, and had raised the alarm said all family members were panic-stricken following the molestation and threats at their doorstep.  He complained that the police did not act against any of the 15 locals who had threatened them. “When you see them walk freely, how can it inspire confidence?” he asked.”Unless absolutely necessary, none of us are stepping out of the home fearing hostility,” he said.
