No rallies or outrage for Ramkrishna Mission Sadhvi raped in West Bengal

News broke out on 14th March about an unfortunate incident of a Nun being gang-raped in a robbery case. Protests were organized, rallies taken out, and desperate attempts to communalise this sensitive issue were made by media and other interested people. But no-one felt the need to pity the condition of another woman, who too was gang-raped just a day before the above incident, in West Bengal itself.

As per a report in Patrika, a Sadhvi from the Ramkrishna Mission was brutally gang-raped on 13th March 2015. This unfortunate incident occurred in the evening, when the Sadhvi, a resident of the Mihir Das colony in English Bazaar district in West Bengal, was returning from a market in her neighbourhood. This is when 4 youths from the neighbourhood dragged the Sadhvi into a Mango grove and gang-raped her. The four accused have been identified as Bharat Halder, Pranay Halder, Sanjivan Vishwas and Aseem Pahaadi.

It is also reported that the Sadhvi repeatedly visited the Police Station to lodge her complaint against the rapists, but instead of registering her FIR, the cops were more interested in sitting with the accused and the victim to settle the matter. Only after immense pressure from members of the Ramkrishna Mission, did the police register a complain, that too on Thursday.

Prasoon Banerji, District Superintendent of Police, said that based on the complaint of the victim, 2 out of the 4 accused had been arrested. He also said that a report will be demanded from the police for their alleged refusal to file the complaint of the victim and appropriate action will be taken.

It is sad that national media hasn’t highlighted this gruesome incident which took place just 1 day before the gang-rape of the Nun.
