Rape victim suicide: What did they open first, shirt or jeans, asked cops

“How did they touch your chest? Did they first open the jeans or the shirt? How many times did they rape you? Who touched you first?”

These are some of the questions that the 18-year-old gangrape victim who committed suicide in Badshahpur village of Patiala district on Wednesday was reportedly asked at the local police checkpost, says her mother Surjit Kaur.

Paramjit Kaur’s father works as a guard in godowns. The youngest of four siblings, she was allegedly taken away on Diwali night (November 13) by accused Gurpreet Singh, Balwinder Singh and Sandeep Singh, of nearby Kheri Nagayan village. A woman neighbour allegedly helped the accused.

“We were looking for her that night near the bridge,” says Surjit. “She seemed inebriated on reaching home around 9.30 pm. Next day, she told us about the incident. They had forced her to drink liquor and then raped her.”

Though they went to the police post, Surjit adds, “no case was registered till November 27”. She was left near the village gurdwara and three men saw her being thrown, the mother says, but all have refused to stand witness. “They told us she walked back taking support of walls of houses.”

Paramjit’s elder sister Charanjit, who teaches in a school, said they shifted her to her aunt’s house in Samana on November 29, but the “harassment” by the alleged rapists continued. Finally, 44 days after the rape, the sister says, “She consumed some poisonous substance on Wednesday and died late in the night.” The next day, the three accused were arrested.

In her suicide note, Paramjit said the three “rapists” had ruined her life.

On Friday, Deputy CM and Home Minister Sukhbir Badal and DGP Sumedh Saini constituted a three-member panel to investigate the case. A SHO and an ASI have been dismissed and a DSP suspended so far. The Punjab and Haryana High Court took suo motu cognisance of the incident on Friday.

Dalit woman sarpanch assaulted in Haryana #vaw

CHANDIGARH: A 37-year-old dalit woman sarpanch was assaulted on Sunday when she was presiding over a meeting to broker peace between two groups fighting over distribution of land for poor families at Aambwalan village in Haryana‘s Yamunanagar district.

The sarpanch, Rajrani, and two other villagers were seriously injured in the attack and were admitted to a government hospital.

Yamunanagar SP Mitesh Jain said the injured were not in a position to give a statement in this regard. “The police will take further action once the injured people give their statements,” Jain added.

Investigation officer Satpal Singh, who had visited the spot, said the sarpanch was assaulted after arguments over the land distribution.

The sarpanch’s husband, Sandeep Singh, who also received injuries in the attack, said around 20 dalits attacked the sarpanch and others present in the panchayat.

The dispute began at a meeting called on September 27 to remove encroachments on a 7.5-acre plot so that it could be distributed among poor families to build houses as part of Haryana’s government ‘Mahatma Gandhi Gramin Basti Yojna’. It was launched in 2008 to allot 100 square yard residential plots to below poverty line families, Scheduled Castes and Backward Classes.

“Two villagers — Pala Ram and Krishan Kumar — picked up a fight at the meet,” said Sandeep. “To resolve the matter, a panchayat was called in the village on Sunday. When the panchayat was going on, a group got angry and started pelting stones at people present in the panchayat. They were also carrying swords and iron rods.”

INTENSIFIED ASSAULT ON WORKING CLASS:

Dear friends,
We are all aware that the recent events in the Maruti’s Manesar factory are in no way an isolated occurrence. In fact, in recent years, there have been several similar incidents in factories all over the country. The incidents at Maruti, Graziano, Rico, Pricol, etc point to a disturbing situation in which industrial democracy is being eroded and even ruthlessly crushed.
The fallout in the Maruti case is especially disturbing. We find that police and paramilitary battalions and ‘ex-Army’ forces are being deployed on the shop floor and around the factory. There is a deliberate attempt at political mobilisation in villages against the workers: village ‘leaders’ are holding meetings in Haryana accusing Maruti workers and unionised workers in general of being ‘anti-development’ and ‘anti-Haryana.’
We feel there is a need to discuss the implications of these developments for our democracy, and to discuss how to break the encirclement in which the working class is increasingly finding itself, in spite of very remarkable trade union struggles.
Towards this, a Convention will be held on 7 September, at ISI, 2 pm-5 pm. At this Convention, Maruti workers will share their own experiences and facts regarding the incident of July 18. S Kumarasami, President of the Pricol Workers’ Union, (also National President of the AICCTU), who is himself facing cooked-up charges of attempt to murder in the 2009 Pricol case, will speak about the Pricol workers’ struggle. Workers and labour organisers working in the Delhi-NCR region will also speak.
We very much hope you can join us in this Convention, and help the workers’ voices to be heard above the shrill cries for ‘reform’ of labour laws and ‘discipline’ for the workers…
In solidarity,

Santosh Roy, Secretary, AICCTU, 7838497013
Sandeep Singh, President, AISA, 9868033425
Kavita Krishnan, 9560756628
