On Tuesday, Kaliyaganj in North Dinajpur district of West Bengal turned into a battle field after a scuffle took place between the members of Tapashili/Rajbongshi o Adivasi Samanay Committee. The members were protesting against the inefficient West Bengal state government that tried to prove the gangrape of the 17-year old girl as suicide.
Earlier in the day, protesters gheraoed the Superintendent of Police’s office at the Uttar Dinajpur district headquarters, Raiganj. The protest in Raiganj was BJP-organised. Police had to fire tear gas shells and lathi charge to restore law and order in the town as they faced stone-pelting.
The administration even tried to cajole the family members of the victim to sit for a settlement. Village had turned into a battle field last week when the police unleashed brutality on protesters and dragged the dead body of the girl like cattle.
National Commission National Commission for Protection of Child Rights (NCPCR) Chairman, Priyank Kanungo, who had visited the village and filed his report said, “The state government did not cooperate with us. I would like to tell the state Women and Child Development and Social Welfare Minister, Shashi Panja, that she is lying as there were enough evidence of rape.” The NCPCR Chairman expressed dismay over the attitude of the Mamata Banerjee government over the regular crimes taking place against women and girls in the state.
A case has been filed under IPC Section 302 (Murder) and Protection of children from sexual offences (POCSO).
