MUMBAI: A sweeper in a Nalasopara school secured a first class in the SSC board exam. She is not the only one to clear the exam in her family – her daughter, too, passed it with 80% this year. Both appeared together.Neeta Waghela (34) works as a sweeper with Mother Teressa school in Nalasopara. When her daughter Aarti, a student of Mother Mary High School in Nalasopara began her Class X studies, Neeta too got interested.

She had been unable to study beyond Class IX due to family problems. Aarti encouraged her mother to appear for the exam. Despite having schooled in Gujarati medium, Neeta decided to complete her Class X in Hindi medium.

“Both of us had the same exam centre in Naigaon. I appeared in Hindi medium and my daughter gave her papers in English,” said Neeta, who is elated at their success.

Neeta always wanted to be a teacher.

“Every time I watched a teacher in class, I wanted to become one. My daughter encouraged me to go for it,” said Neeta who now wants to pursue a teachers’ course after completing Class XII. Neeta has already cleared a Montessori course with a score of 72%

 

#Mumbai- Rapist’s friends threaten his victim with gang rape #Vaw #WTfnews


Minor’s female neighbour, who allegedly helped the accused kidnap and rape her in November, is threatening her parents; neighbour’s friend “strips and urinates” in front of victim’s house

A 12-year-old girl raped after being kidnapped a month ago is now under threat from the rapist’s friends. The people harassing her now had helped the key accused a month ago to kidnap and rape her, the victim’s parents said.

Goregaon rape victim

The minor’s neighbour, Karina, allegedly threatened her parents that their daughter would be made to go through the same violence again. “I will kidnap your girl again if you don’t leave here,” the neighbour reportedly told the victim’s parents, who live at Ram Mandir Road in Ghatkopar (W). “This time, your girl will be gang-raped by more than a dozen men,” she reportedly said. Karina also threatened the child, saying that what had happened to her was just a “trailer” of more ghastly things to come.

Karina’s associate Iqbal, also accused of threatening the girl, strips and urinates in front of the 12-year-old’s house every now and then, her harried parents said. On November 26, Karina and Iqbal introduced the 12-year-old girl to the rape accused Budharam Chaudhary (30). They asked her to go with him in an autorickshaw, tempting her by saying that he would give her things like food and new clothes.

The unsuspecting girl agreed to go with the accused. But Chaudhary kidnapped her and took her to Rajasthan. Unable to find her, the minor’s family registered a missing complaint with the Goregaon police station the next day. Her mother told the police that the last time she saw her daughter was with Karina and Iqbal.

Police then detained the two, who confessed that they had ‘sold’ the child to Chaudhary and did not know of their whereabouts. Cops tracked down the address of one Budharam Chaudhary, who lived at Nalasopara and hailed from Rajashtan. Since he was not at home, officers picked up his elder brother and other relatives for investigation.

The kin told the police that Budharam was in Rajasthan. Finally, he was spotted at Borivli station, along with the girl, on December 9. He was arrested and the victim was rescued. Chaudhary had raped her over five times in the 12 days after he kidnapped her, medical reports stated.

Police sources said that Karina would often trade the minor with other men in flesh trade. She would lure her with money, and sell her to solicitors. She and Iqbal have not been arrested despite their role in our daughter’s rape, the 12-year-old’s parents said. Chaudhary is in police custody.

Senior Police Inspector of Goregaon police station Arun Jadhav said, “Earlier, we had registered a missing complaint, but after investigations, filed a kidnapping case. The accused, had who fled to Rajasthan, was arrested a few days later from Borivli in December. That is when we registered a rape case, as the medical reports had confirmed it.” He added, “If the victim is being harassed and threatened by aides of the key accused, we will investigate the matter and arrest them.”

Appeal for acid attack victim Aarti Thakur

APPEAL

Many of you would have read about the brutal acid attack on 22 year old AARTI THAKUR on 31st January at Goregaon station. This was the third attack since November 2011, the first two being cases of slashing and stabbing, both with the intention to inflict grievous injury and severely intimidate her. Aarti lives with her mother, Seema and younger sister, Pooja. Aarti was the only one holding a job at the time of her attack. She had joined a private firm in Goregaon as a receptionist in January and is too new in this job to be entitled to any financial support. Her mother has been unable to rejoin her work in the past two months as she has been trying to protect Aarti, including shift out of their Malwani rental accommodation to Nalasopara.

Aarti is a victim of gross negligence by the police which failed to take cognizance of the first attack of slashing that took place in Malwani. Even as the crimes are being investigated, the immediate need is for a fund for Aarti’s immediate and long term treatment and surgeries. We visited Aarti in the hospital on February 3rd. We learnt that she needs to undergo her first surgery immediately as the burns are fairly deep. Some friends have already contributed which we handed over on the 5th February.

The Akhil Bharatiya Janwadi Mahila Sanghatana (AIDWA), Mumbai District Committee, appeals to all concerned citizens to support Aarti and her family and contribute towards a fund for her treatment. If you wish to make a contribution, please contact us on the mobile numbers given below. We also urge you to share this appeal with your friends and encourage them to contribute to this cause.
