A 23 year old woman committed suicide yesterday after being sexually assaulted by a CRPF jawan on duty at Nepalpara, Chirang, Assam. She was married and her husband was mentally ill. She was living with her parents and was running a small grocery (pan) shop in front of the parental residence. Taking advantage of the absence of people near the shop, the jawan raped her and tried to run away. The woman could manage to shout for help and villagers caught the CRPF jawan. Officers of CRPF arrived at the venue and made promises of payment of compensation. Unable to face the social stigma, the woman committed suicide yesterday.
