Maharashtra -Dalit man commits suicide after police assault


Last Updated: Friday, March 15, 2013, Zee news
Gadchiroli (Maharashtra): A Dalit man committed suicide here in Eastern Maharashtra with his family alleging he took the extreme step after being assaulted by the police.

The victim, identified only as Sachin, escaped from a police van after being taken into custody and jumped into a well in village Katli near here Thursday. His body was fished out late in the night, police sources said.

His family this morning lodged a complaint with the Gadchiroli police station demanding action against the police personnel who allegedly assaulted him during a raid.

When contacted, Sub-Divisional Police Officer (SDPO) Rahul Khade said based on the complaint a probe has been ordered into the alleged police brutality. “We will take action against those found guilty,” he maintained.

According to the sources, a team of five Constables, including a woman, raided Sachin’s house on suspicion that he was engaged in illegal liquor trade.

When Sachin denied selling liquor, the policemen thrashed him with sticks and belt. They also assaulted his two sisters and mother, the complaint alleged.

The police then arrested Sachin and put him into a van, from where he ran off and jumped into the well, it said.

An organisation representing the community to which the victim belonged has demanded dismissal of the police personnel involved in the incident and registration of a case against them under the SC/ST Prevention of Atrocities Act.

Samayya Pasula, President of Madgi Samaj Sangathana, said a compensation of Rs 25 lakh should be given to the family of the deceased.

Meanwhile, tension prevailed in the village, where additional police force has been deployed to maintain law and order.

After interviewing with the relatives of the deceased victims, villagers and police officials we are forwarding herewith the following observations of the fact finding committee.

1. The three deceased

1. Sandeep Raju Thanwar ( Age : 26, Resident of Village Kinhi, Taluka Bhusawal, District Jalgaon),
2. Sachin Sohanlal Gharu (Age: 22, Resident of Erandol , Jalgaon),
3. Rahul Kandare (Age: 20, Resident of Malkapur, District Buldhana) were working as Manual Scavengers at Trimurti Education society, Nevasa phata, District Ahmednagar. All of them belong to Mehter community (Scheduled Caste). All the three victims are migrated to the said village and stayed on the campus in the Trimurty School.

2. On 1st January 2013 Sandeep Thanwar received a phone call from one Mr Ashok Navgire informing him to reach the residence of Mr. Popat Vishwanath Darandale at Ganeshwadi Nevasa to clean the septic tank. Sandeep Thanwar along with Sachin Gharu and Rahul Kandale left for the residence of Poapt Darandale at around 11:00 am.

3. At around 8:30 pm Kapil Raju Thanwar, younger brother of Sandeep, received a phone call from Sonaii Police Station that dead body of Sandeep Thanwar in found in the Septic tank of Mr. Popat Dharandale. Kapil Thanwar rushed towards the residence of Mr Popat Thanwar. Kapil inquired with Mr Paraksh Dahrandale and Popat Dharandale about Sachin Gharu and Rahul Kandlae. He was informed that both of them left the place of incidence.

4. On 1st January 2013 at around 10:40 pm one Mr. Mukesh Changre, a relative of Sachin Thanwar filed a complaint in the Sonaii Police station. The dead body of Sandeep was thereafter send for postmortem.

5. On 2nd January 2013 the relatives of Sandeep received a phone call from the Sonaii police station that dead body of the other two members was found in the agricultural land of Mr Ramesh Darandale at Ganeshwadi, Nevasa. After visiting the spot where the dead bodies were found, people witnessing were shocked to see the dead body of Sachin Gharu. Both of his lower limbs were amputed from the knees and both the upper limbs were amputed from the shoulder. Also his head was chopped from the body. There were marks of injury on the head of Rahul Kandare. His dead body was also found near to the dead body of Sachin Gharu. Dead body of Sachin Gharu and Rahul Kandale were sent for Postmortem.

6. F.I.R was filed at Sonaii Police Station on 2nd January 2013 at 9”00 p.m. The Police arrested Mr. Ramesh Darandale, Prakash Darandale, Sandeep Kure Ashok Navgire and Popat Darandale. They were charged under section 302, 201 and 34 of the Indian Penal Code. On 5 th January 2013 after a representation made by the some social activists to the District Collector Ahmednagar the Accused s were charged with section 120(b) of Indian Penal Code and Section 3(2)(5) of Scheduled Caste and Scheduled Caste (Prevention of Atrocities Act) 1989.

7. The fact finding committee also perused the postmortem report of all the three victims. In the report of Sandeep Thanwar the Doctor made an opinion that the death is due to cardio respiratory arrest due to asphyxia due to drowning. The body was stained with fecal matter. But it is pertinent to note that no faecal matter was found in the mouth or lungs of the dead body. The stomach was empty. Neither water, nor faecal matter nor food material is found in the stomach. This creates a strong suspicion that Sandeep Thanwar might have been killed by strangulation and then thrown in the septic tank. In case of the postmortem report of Sachin Gharu, the report do mention about the amputed limbs and head of Sachin, but what is surprising is that the report mention that the dead body was found wearing a jeans pant and a baniyan. If his lower limbs are amputed from the keens then in such a case jeans pant should have been torn. But the Postmortem report doesn’t mention the same. On the contrary it does mention that mud is stuck to all over the body, clothes wet with water. Thus it is possible that Sachin was made naked, killed, and then clothes were put on his body.

All the three victims belong to scheduled caste community. There is a whisper amongst the villagers that there was a love affair between Sachin and a girl from the Darandale family. This love affair was not appreciated by the family members of Darandale. This seems to be a case of Honour killing. The Police are investigating the case but has not yet been able to find out the motive behind this heinous murder.

There is no further development in the investigation. The accused are upper caste Hindus having a strong political influence in the locality. There is a sense of fear in the minds of the members of Scheduled Caste Community in the locality.

#India-Spurned man burns two women with insecticide #acidattack #vaw


rape

Rejected by the married woman he was trying to woo, a 30-year-old man attacks her and a friend with a can of insecticide and a lighter; women suffer serious burns but are out of danger

Nazia Sayed, Mumbai Mirror

Posted On Wednesday, December 12, 2012

The Samtanagar police have arrested a 30-year-old man, Sachin Gangaram Shigvan, for assaulting and attemtping to kill a woman and a friend who tried to rescue her.

Shradha Landge (23) and Minal Zeman (36) suffered serious burn injuries after Sachin attacked them with a can of insecticide and a lighter, but are out of danger. This is the latest in a spate of horrific attacks on women in Mumbai, and echoes the recent case of Jerrit John, an ad film-maker who threw acid on the face of a girl who rejected him.

According to the police, Sachin, who lost his wife and son two years ago, both to prolonged illnesses, had been attracted to Shrasha even before she got married. According to Shradha, he had been actively wooing her for the past four months, but in vain.

Since Shradha refused to leave her husband, Sachin tried a different tack – he befriended her husband and began telling both spouses made-up stories about the other’s infidelity. “This went on for a long time and caused many misunderstandings between my husband and I. But finally we understood that it was all Sachin’s doing,” said Shradha.

On Sunday, Shradha and her husband Shashikant, an auto driver, called Sachin for a chat over a cup of tea and tried to convince him to forget about Shradha. Sachin reacted angrily and started to abuse the two. Furious, Shashikant slapped him twice and threw him out of the house. On his way out, Sachin told them that he would get back at them.

On Tuesday morning, he returned for revenge. Around 11 am on Tuesday, Shradha was at her neighbour Shabana‘s house. Shabana and her watched TV while another friend, Minal Zeman (36) washed clothes outside. Sachin barged in and told Shabana to get out of the house. He said that Shradha had destroyed his life and now he would do the same to her.

As soon as Shabana fled, Sachin locked the door, unaware that Minal had already sneaked in and was hiding behind a curtain. Sachin was carrying a can of insecticide, which he sprayed on Shradha before setting fire to her. Shradha’s face, neck, left shoulder, and hair were burnt in the attack. Seeing her friend in trouble, Minal emerged and tried to douse the fire. Sachin warned Minal that if she did not leave, she would suffer the same fate as Shradha. Minal however refused to leave her friend’s side.

Sachin then tried to spray and burn her as well. Minal suffered burns but managed to run towards the door. When she opened it, she saw a large crowd gathered outside. People immediately rushed in to rescue to two women and nab Sachin. Sachin later told the police that he had intended to burn Shradha alive. Senior Inspector Nanasaheb Kamble of Samtanagar police station said, “The accused will be produced in court tomorrow. Both victims have been admitted to a hospital in Kandivali.”
