Gang #Raped in #Bengal as Punishment for Falling in #Love


(Birbhum district) West Bengal, Jan 22, 2014

On orders of the panchayat (the village judiciary) a tribal woman in Rampurhat was gang-raped by 10-12 men as ‘punishment’ for falling in love with a man from another community.

The 20-year-old woman, who is hospitalized in a critical state said she had been gang-raped through the night.  Most of these men were neighbors who had seen her growing up and who she addressed as “uncle” and “brother.”

The panchayat initially wanted the woman’s family to pay a hefty fine. When they said they didn’t have that kind of money, they then decided that she had to be gang raped as punishment.  The police have arrested 12 men that the victim has identified.

  1. Mere words cannot describe how sick that part was…
    The govt or the people at most shouldn’t be quiet. Spread her voice like fire such that the perpetrators will lose their copulatory organ before the mass.
    Shame on the community. Shame on the 12 men and above all shame on PMS (Patriarchy Misogyny Sexism).
    Ladies whatever they are doing to you if you deserve justice Then I know that you fighting it, you can win! Don’t give up! for our daughters (and sons).
