#India Police insensitivity- Gangraped migrant women approach Delhi Police for justice

Bhiwani, April 28
The Haryana Police’s sensitivity towards crimes against women has once again come under scanner, after two migrant Dalit women, who were allegedly gang-raped and paraded naked by their employer at a brick kiln in Dhanana village of Bhiwani district, had to approach the Delhi Police through an NGO headed by Swami Agnivesh for getting justice.

The victims, a 33-year-old woman and her 22-year-old sister-in-law, who were being kept as bonded labourers in the brick kiln, had approached the Bhiwani police last Saturday with a request for their release as bonded labourers, but the police allegedly turned a deaf ear to their complaint.

A policeman allegedly told the women that they deserved this treatment and “something bigger could happen to them by the evening.”

On the same night, they were allegedly gang-raped by the brick kiln owner and two others.

The women, who belong to Budelkhand, alleged in their complaint to the Delhi Police that they were gang-raped by three men, including the brick kiln owner for two days.

“My employer used to beat me with sticks and torture me regularly when I used to ask for wages. He and two of his brothers even forced me to parade naked. They fractured my fingers and bruised my body. And this has been happening for the past six months,” one of the victims alleged.

Bandhua Mukti Morcha, an NGO to help bonded labour and headed by Swami Agnivesh, helped the women approach the Delhi Police and narrated their tale of woes.

The Delhi Police registered an FIR under Section 376-D of the IPC on the complaint of the women and informed the Bhiwani police last night.

Bhiwani Superintendent of Police (SP) Simardeep Singh said the victims were being brought to Bhiwani for recording their statements.

He said the police would incorporate relevant sections of the IPC in the FIR after recording the statements of the victims.

Simardeep Singh said the police would verify the allegations against the local police and would take action if anyone was found guilty.

 

Rapes will come down if people shun meat, alcohol: Swami Agnivesh #WTFnews


PTI | Apr 27, 2013,

NEW DELHI: Rape cases will come down if people shun non-vegetarian food and alcohol, activist Swami Agnivesh said on Saturday.

“We cannot stop a crime like rape by policing only…. I think rapes will come down significanlty if people stop eating non-vegetarian. There has been lot of research on this…. Rapes will come down significantly if alcohol consumption is not there,” he told reporters here.

He said a lot of crimes and accidents take place due to consumption of alcohol.

Arguing on the benefits of a vegetarianism, he said Japanese scientists conducted a study on the oldest man on earth recently and they found that he was a vegeterian.

“Every research conducted in this world points to one fact that red meat is the reason behind all diseases,” he said.

Agnivesh said that all the six accused in the gruesome rape of a young girl in a moving bus on December 16 last year were drunk as well as the accused in the recent incident of sexual assault on a five-year-old girl.

“In both the incidents, the accused consumed alcohol. This explains clearly that alcohol drove them to commit the crime. Alcohol shuts down the moral thinking of a person,” he said.

“Government is not ending alcohol-production in the country as it fetches revenue. All the states have now started competing to outnumber each other in alcohol production. This has become the norm,” he said.

Expressing concern over the fact that everyday one billion animals are slaughtered, he said that “its consequesnce will be severe.”

Regretting the loss of values in human beings, Agnivesh said, “There are no moral and spiritual values left in people. Schools today do not teach children about the evil-consequences of drinking. We cannot blame an individual for a crime. The society, as a whole, is responsible.”

Asked about whether death penalty will stop rape, Swami said, “Death penalty will not do anything. I do not support it. Death sentence should not given to anybody including those who attack Parliament. Even Kasab should not have been given death sentence,” he said.
