Bathinda, February 25
Four months ago, she was brutally raped by seven men who made a video-film on her and chopped off her hair.The 14-year-old, a class VIII student, has not had the courage to return to school since then. Her two younger siblings did not go to school for a month after the sordid incident. The victim’s family has decided to sell their small piece of land and migrate.

Across the village fields is the house of Manpreet Singh,22, the key accused. His father Gurjeet Singh, 54, and his elder brother Charanjeet Singh, 56, are co-accused in the case along with four others. Shinder Singh, 50, Gurjeet Singh’s brother, is the only one left at home to tend to the fields and the cattle. “Shoot us but don’t call my brothers and nephew rapists,” he says. Showing documents pertaining to a civil suit, Shinder Singh claimed: “We have been framed. The girl’s father had sold us a piece of land some years ago. When the price of the plot went up, he sought more money but we refused.”

An FIR was filed on October 20, 2012, alleging that Manpreet Singh and his friend Raju had forcibly taken the girl to a room 150 metres from her house and raped her . The victim’s further alleged that on October 14, the two called her up, asking her to meet them outside her house. They promised to delete the video-clip on her.

However, the two, who were accompanied by five others, took her away and raped her again. They cut off her hair and dumped her outside her house.

The Deputy Commmissioner said there was no scheme under which the victim could be rehabilitated. The Senior Superintendent of Police said the police had acted immediately on receiving the complaint and booked the accused.

Punjab shame piles on: Gangraped and dumped, nurse critical

TNN | Jan 21, 2013, 03.40 AM IST

BATHINDA: Even before the memories of Patiala gang rape and suicide case fade, another abduction and gang rape of a 26-year-old nurse, who was in Chandigarh to attend a job interview, shocked Punjab on Sunday.In an observation in the Patiala gang rape and suicide case, the Punjab and Haryana high court last month had made scathing criticism of the state of affairs in Punjab, saying there is need to combat the ‘rape culture’ in the state. However, the ‘rape culture’ seems to be continuing in the state without any shame.In the latest case, the nurse from Landeke village in Moga district was thrown out by the rapists from a car on Bathinda-Dabawali road on Sunday evening, two days after her abduction. The girl, who had completed her nursing course from Mata Sahib Kaur College in Gidderbaha in 2007, is battling for life at Bathinda civil hospital now.

According to a statement given to Bathinda’s Rama Mandi police station SHO Paramjeet Singh, the girl, who had been looking for a job, was informed by one of her friends that there was a vacancy at a Sector 34 hospital in Chandigarh.

She took a bus to Chandigarh on Friday morning and got down at Sector 43 bus terminal when an unknown person came to her asking for an address. Before she could utter a word, the girl was dragged into a car in which another woman and a man were seated. They gagged her and the trio injected her with some drug after which she fell unconscious.

When she woke up, she saw four men in a room and one of them was filming her in the nude. When she screamed, he injected her with another dose of some drug. The girl alleged that she was gang-raped by the men. On Sunday morning, she was dragged into a car in a semi-conscious condition by the gang. Later, the girl was thrown out of the vehicle around 5.30pm on Sunday near Rama Mandi area on Bathinda-Dabawali road.

A car driver, Rohitas Kumar of Kular village in Abohar district, spotted the girl in a serious condition and admitted her to the civil hospital in Bathinda.

The police have registered a case and a hunt is on for the culprits, said Gurmeet Singh Kingra, DSP, Bathinda.

Doctor Poonam Dhillon of the civil hospital has conducted a medical examination of the girl and confirmed that the girl was gangraped.

On December 26, a minor girl had ended her life in Patiala after the cops failed to take action against those who violated her. A 26-year-old woman was thrown out of a moving car on Sunday after being abducted and gang-raped in Punjab’s Moga district.

The woman was thrown out by the rapists on the Bathinda-Dabawali road. The victim is battling for life at a hospital.

According to the woman’s statement to the police, she took a bus to Chandigarh on Friday morning. After she got down at Sector 43 bus terminal an unknown person came to her asking for an address. Before she could say anything, she was dragged into a car where there was another woman and a man. They gagged her and injected her with some drug after which she fell unconscious.

When she woke up, she saw four men in a room and one of them was filming her in the nude. When she screamed she was drugged again. She alleged that she was gang-raped by the men. She was thrown out of a car around 5.30pm on Sunday on the Bathinda-Dabawali road.

A car driver saw the woman in a serious condition and brought her to the hospital. A medical examination confirmed that the woman was gang-raped.

The police have registered a case and a hunt is on for the culprits, said Gurmeet Singh Kingra, DSP, Bathinda.


Punjab social activists jointly urge PM to ensure proper medical treatment to jailed tribal teacher #sonisori

1. Shri Manmohan Singh, Prime Minister of India, New Delhi
2. Shri Raman Singh, Chief Minister of Chhattisgarh, Raipur

We, the undersigned, are deeply concerned by the pathetic condition of Soni Sori in Raipur Central Jail. It has been reported that she has been passing blood with her urine, is having difficulty to sit or get up, and has lost considerable weight. Although the Supreme Court, on a petition moved on her behalf has ordered the Chhattisgarh Govt to bring her to AIIMS New Delhi for treatment. The inhuman character of Chhattisgarh Govt was clearly reflected in its stiff opposition to the petition.

It is unfortunate that despite the doctors from NRS Medical Hospital having confirmed that stones had been inserted into her vagina and rectum, Soni Sori has not received proper medical care. We fear for Soni’s life and are outraged and ashamed at this inhuman treatment of a woman in India.

Soni Sori, 35, is an adivasi school teacher from Dantewada who was arrested in New Delhi on Oct 4 2011. She was tortured physically and sexually but neither the state nor the central government has investigated the abuse. Her case has been repeatedly listed up in the Supreme Court but has been postponed every time. Throughout the duration of Soni Sori’s imprisonment, the state has also tried to stifle her communications with the civil society. In January this year, a team from various women’s groups across the country went to Raipur Jail to meet Soni, but they were prevented from doing so by the administration.

In the meantime another tragedy has befallen upon Soni Sori, as her mother has expired.

The brutal treatment meted out to Soni Sori, and the prevailing situation of conflict and repression in Chhattisgarh, cause us grave concern about Soni in particular, and the situation of women prisoners, in general. We demand immediate access for fact-finding groups to meet with Soni Sori and others to assess their condition in jail, particularly their medical situation. We fear that Soni Sori’s condition is rapidly deteriorating, and demand that she be released unconditionally.
