Woman stripped and battered in Tripura village
On Thursday, eight youths of the village tied the woman to a tree and assaulted her. Two women were also part of this gang.
AGARTALA: At a time when the entire nation is up in arms against the Delhi gang-rape incident, a 37-year-old woman has been stripped and battered in full public view by some youths atRangapania village of Bishalgarh, about 30 km from Agartala.

On Thursday, eight youths of the village tied the woman to a tree and assaulted her. Two women were also part of this gang.

The victim alleged that her husband instigated the youths to outrage her modesty because she had refused to bring money from her parents. Police said the victim got married to Samir Kar 9 years ago and they have a 3-year-old daughter.

A local court on Saturday sent seven accused of the incident to 15 days judicial custody and asked police to arrest the main accused – the husband of the victim.

“I was tortured by my husband and in-laws for dowry. I brought more than Rs 2 lakh from my parents over the years. After I gave birth to a girl, the atrocities increased as they didn’t want a girl child,” the victim told police.

She said she had been objecting to the atrocities of late which made her husband angry and he masterminded this heinous plan to outrage her modesty. Based on the victim’s complaint, police immediately swung into action and arrested seven of them. Three more accused – Samir and two other women – are still absconding.

Crime against women in Tripura is escalating over the years. On an average, 19 women are being raped and at least 10 brides get killed in the state every month. At least one rape case is reported in every two days in Tripura.

    it is disgusting that that patriarchal society could be so bizarre. I am not in a position to comment on such disgusting people or the system. People elected murderers and perpetrators of worse crimes in Gujarat, defeating some good people, it is hence difficult to comment .Shame is not the right word, as these people are not ashamed of their acts.
