SP admits rape by policemen at Nandigram

KOLKATA: West Bengal police have confirmed that two of their men raped a woman protester at Nandigram — an admission that is sure to compound matters for the CPM leadership and the state government already reeling under the disastrous fallout of cop and cadre excesses at the proposed SEZ site last month.

The rape "confession" came from East Midnapore police superintendent Anil Srinivas and is part of a report that chief secretary Amit Kiran Deb has forwarded to the West Bengal Human Rights Commission, which is probing charges of rape and molestation on March 14, when Nandigram witnessed large-scale violence.

According to sources, the police chief of East Midnapore acknowledged that the claim of one of the two women who had accused policemen of raping them is true. "The brief fact of...Nandigram PS case number 44/07 is that on 14.03.07 at about 12 pm, the two police personnel caught Sona and raped her. The complainant fell unconscious and was taken to the Nandigram BPHC for treatment. Later (she was) referred to Purba (East) Midnapore district hospital on 16.03.07 and discharged on 25.03.07 after necessary treatment," the report states. The Times of India

WHAT HAPPENED TO RAPE CASE OF NANDIGRAM? On Jan 14, 2014, Nandigram got a 130-foot-tall column, or Minar. Built on the initiative of Trinamool MP, it is a memorial to the 14 villagers killed in police firing as well as to women raped during that movement. And one rape victim inaugurated it. Tears welled up in the eyes of the 52-year-old woman, who had allegedly been gangraped twice. On March 14, 2007, she was attacked twice by CPM goons. Her house was burnt. BUT SHE HAS NOT GOT JUSTICE EVEN AFTER Trinamool got POWER. This rape victim symbolized the fight against land grabbing as per Suvendu Adhikari, MP. He told this to Media. It is only second to Kolkata Shahid Minar (168 ft). Nandigram Minar is built at Rs 2.25 crore. Adhikari says what inspired him is the Minar at Jalianwala Bagh and the Bhasha Shaeed Minar in Dhaka. He contributed Rs 30 lakh from MP allowances. TOWER MAKING IS FINE. BUT WHAT HAPPENED TO THE RAPE CASE? CAN RAPE VICTIM BECOME A VIP? IS RAPIST A VIP? TMC IS IN POWER. Who is preventing to investigate and punish the rapists? IS THIS ANOTHER CHAMPALA SARDAR CASE? No RAPE CASE by police? Only celebration ? Where is the CASE?
