Raped and murdered while working on her farm in Arunachal

31 August 2014
A 35 year old farmer was raped and killed while working on her farm in Arunachal Pradesh in NE India. While much has been made globally about preventing rape by building toilets, the fact is women and girls are raped while working in the fields, fetching wood or water, walking to school, or simply going for a stroll like the two schoolgirls raped and hanged from a tree in Assam a few days ago (see previous post).

NE Student Sexually Assaulted by Three Male Students At Vishwa Bharati University

29 August, 2014, West Bengal

A student from Sikkim at the prestigious Vishwa Bharati University was sexually assaulted by three other male students at the University.  The student is traumatized not just by the assault but the oppressive treatment meted out to her by the University. Her father said, the university try to prevent them from filing a police complaint, even as they took no action against the male students and grilled the victimized student implying that she may be responsible.  There have been an increasing number of racially motivated sexual and other physical assaults on north-eastern students in the major metropolises of India.
