West Bengal: Chopra flogging victim files a ‘complaint’ against Amit Malviya and Md Salim for ‘making her video viral’, Malviya says she’s under pressure

"It is unlikely that the woman has done so on her own accord because she is oblivious to facts. She has been made to file this complaint because she has to live in TMC-infested Chopra and Mamata Banerjee’s priority is not justice for Meherun Nesha but fixing political adversaries. But she won’t succeed,” Malviya said.

The West Bengal Police registered a case against CPI(M) state secretary Mohammed Salim and Amit Malviya, BJP IT Cell Head for spreading a video of a woman being publicly flogged in the Taliban style in Chopra. The FIR was filed in response to the victim woman Mehrun Nesha’s complaint. She claimed that a video was taken and shared without her permission or knowledge, resulting in defamation and distress. She asked the police to act against the accused CPIM and BJP leaders.

Social media…amar ekta video viral hoyechhe. Jar jonyo amar sommamhani hoyechhe. Fole somaje amar bash kora khubi onipojogi hoye giyechhe (A video of mine has gone viral on social media. I have been defamed due to this. It has, thus, become difficult for me to reside in society),” the victim said.

In her ‘complaint’, she named Mohammed Salim and Amit Malviya and stated, “I want proper legal action against those who are guilty, and my video should be deleted immediately.”

Both the politicians have been booked under under section Bharatiya Nyaya Sanhita (BNS) sections 79 (insult to modesty of woman), 294 (obscenity), 356 (2) (defamation) and IT Act sections 66A (sending offensive messages through computer or other communication devices) 66E (capturing image of a person’s private area without consent), 67A (publishing material that contains sexually explicit acts or conduct in electronic form).

Meanwhile, BJP leader Amit Malviya on Monday (8th July) alleged that the CM Mamata Banerjee-led government has been using sexual victims, and is now using public flogging victims to target her political adversaries. Taking to X, Malviya said the video of the incident was all over the Bengali media and shared on social media before he picked it up. The BJP leader further claimed that the victim did not file a complaint against him on her own, rather, she was made to do so since has to live in the TMC-ruled Chopra.

“From #Sandeshkhali to Chopra, nothing has changed. Mamata Banerjee continues to use victims of rape, sexual assault and now public flogging to protect criminals like Sheikh Shahjahan and Tajemul Islam (alias JCB), and to target political opponents. The latest in the series is Meherun Nesha, the woman who was flogged in full public view. Local TMC MLA had defended the act of his close associate. She has now, purportedly, filed a complaint against CPI(M) leader Md Salim and me for the horrific video going viral. I can speak for myself. The video was all over Bengal media and several users had picked it up, even before it reached Delhi. It is unlikely that the woman has done so on her own accord because she is oblivious to facts. She has been made to file this complaint because she has to live in TMC-infested Chopra and Mamata Banerjee’s priority is not justice for Meherun Nesha but fixing political adversaries. But she won’t succeed,” Malviya posted.

CPI(M) leader Mohammed Salim also called out the TMC government for filing an alleged fake case against him. He accused the gang of public flogging accused Tajemul alias JCB and the local police of working in tandem.

“उल्टी नगरी, चौपट राज। @AITCofficial’s SOP in such cases. Fake case against voice of protest. #JCB gang and police work in tandem,” Salim posted.

It all started on Sunday (30th June) when a video shared by CPI(M) leader Mohammed Salim, in which a local Bahubali leader Tajemul is seen assaulting a married woman and a man lying helplessly on the road in the name of ‘summary Justice’ is doing rounds on social media. Sharing the video of the assault, CPI(M) leader and Former Rajya Sabha MP Salim alleged that the main accused seen in the video is a local TMC goon who goes by the nickname ‘JCB’. As the video went viral, a public outcry ensued, with many taking to social media to express their anger and demand justice for the victim. Notably, the police have arrested the perpetrator Tajemul alias JCB.
