Her Breasts Were Chopped Off for Resisting #Sex-Trafficking

Thane, Maharashtra, March 23, 2014

A 24-year-old woman was beaten up, her teeth broken, and breasts chopped off when she resisted being forced into prostitution by the brothel owners who had ‘bought’ from traffickers.  The woman is originally from Gujarat and was kidnapped and brought to Hanuman Tekdi, a red light area in Bhiwandi district of Thane, by a man known to her, who she considered to be a ‘brother.’  Most women who are trafficked across and out of India are duped and or kidnapped by people known to them — friends, relatives and neighbors.  The woman is under treatment in a local hospital and the police have arrested the brothel owners.  The men who kidnapped and sold her are said to be absconding.

Judge Says Sunita’s is not a Dowry Murder Because Her Marriage May be Illegal?

sunita dowryNew Delhi, March 07, 2014

This case may be a bitter warning to all women in India contemplating marriage and to their parents!

In 1997 Sunita who was married to Rajbir was burnt to death.  She suffered 90% burns.  Her parents went to court saying she was being harassed for dowry and had been burnt to death.  This has become a prevalent practice in India and a 2009 report (see below) estimated that about 106,000 women were burnt to death this way. (SEE BELOW)

However more 17 years after the incident, a court today said Sunita’s death couldn’t be established as dowry related murder, as her marriage to Rajbir was her second marriage and may not have been valid!

IS THIS JUSTICE FOR SUNITA? WHY SHOULD THERE BE A SEPARATE PRECEDENT FOR DOWRY RELATED VIOLENCE AND MURDER? WHY ISN’T VIOLENCE AND MURDER OF WOMEN A  CRIME REGARDLESS OF WHAT PRECIPITATES IT?
