In the last few months a bunch of sexual assaults had taken place where the perpetrators belonged to a particular faith. Now a similar incident has taken place in Bihar where a 19 year old girl was ganged raped by Faiz Alam, Abdul Mannan, Kalu, Kasim, Kaiser and Ansar. What was heart crunching is that the rapists had forced the young girl’s father to watch that incident.
This shocking incident too place in a village in Bihar’s Kishanganj district on 5th February. Police officials stated “the 19-year-old victim lodged a police complaint on Wednesday that six youth of her village under Kodhowadi police station knocked at her door late on Tuesday night asking for water to drink, but forcibly entered her home and dragged her outside”.
After she was dragged out of her house, the 6 six men named Faiz Alam, Abdul Mannan, Kalu, Kasim, Kaiser and Ansar forcefully took her to a field near to her house, tied her father to a tree and then raped her. After executing this heinous crime, the 6 rapists threatened the girl and father not to inform this to anybody, or else they would be killed.
But the brave girl didn’t back off and went on to file a complaint. The Kishanganj Superintendent of Police Kumar Ashish said “The victim has named six persons, the police are conducting raids to nab them as they are absconding. I am personally monitoring the case and they will be arrested soon”.
What was even disgusting in this incident was that the villagers had tried to pressurize the girl and father not to escalate the assault. But the duo didn’t succumb to the pressure and went ahead to file a FIR.
In the latest development, the Kishanganj police had succeeded to nab 4 out of the 6 rapists. Sadly none of the mainstream journalists are highlighting this brutal incident.
