Teenage Girl Molested by a Mob of 20 Men in Full Public View!

Guwahati, Assam, July 13, 2012

A 17 year old girl was stripped and mob molested by a group of about 20 men, in full view of the public.  The girl was attending a friend’s party at a pub, when one of the men passed a lewd remark at her.  She retorted, and the pub owner threw them both out.  After that, as the man followed and grabbed at her, a crowd of men collected and joined in the gang attack.  There was a T.V. crew nearby that actually filmed the incident without intervening!!! The television station has been criticized for being mute witnesses to the crime.

The Managing Editor in response said, “There were lots of people shooting the incident on mobile phones…. The police was informed the moment this incident happened. There were two camerapersons and two people cannot take on a mob…Had we stopped rolling the camera, these molesters would not have been arrested. What we did was in public interest…”  Full report here

The faces of the accused men from this film has been made into a poster which has been put up all over the city.   The poster is included below here in this blog.

If anyone has any information regarding the men identified in this case (photos below) or you want report anything else regarding the incident, you may call 0120-4341895 (India

New Delhi, November 24, 2011

Rekha Rani’s husband, along with his sisters and mother, had tortured her mentally and physically and called her names, beat her up and often threw her out of the house as they demanded dowry from Rekha’s parents.  They even threatened to kill her. On May 9, 2011, Sanjeev, the husband, called up Rekha’s mother to say that her daughter was not keeping well and wanted to meet her.  When Rekha’s mother reached her daughter’s matrimonial home along with her husband, she found the house locked from outside and was informed by neighbours that her daughter has been taken to hospital as she had supposedly hanged herself.  Rekha had been declared “brought dead” at the hospital. She has left behind a two-year-old son.  After knowing of her daughter’s death at the hospital, Rekha’s parents told the police that her daughter was being harassed and tortured by her in-laws for bringing insufficient dowry. One of Rekha Rani’s torturers who has now been denied bail was her sister-in-law Seema Singhal, a school teacher and a law graduate. The report here.
