Guwahati Girl molested for 6 years by ‘relatives’


A student of Panbazar Girls High School has been molested for over a period of six years by a family of policemen and City police arrested two of the main accused but two others are yet to be arrested.

In a bizarre incident, a poor girl from Dhemaji, who was ‘adopted’ by her relatives at Guwahati and then unleashed a six-year long ordeal of sexual molestation.

According to the complaint lodged in the Women Police station Guwahati the girl (name withheld) was subjected to years of sexual molestation by one Thaneshwar Handique (Relatives), Dhiru Prasad Deka (Relatives) and son of Thaneshwar Handique.

According to the police complaint the poor girl belongs to Dhemaji and she lost her father. Her mother was forced to marry another person and that person was also willing to take this poor girl into her family.

But the sister of her father Bonti Handique (police constable) got her forcibly to Guwahati, shown in the paper as adopted daughter of Dhiru Prasad Deka. She was enrolled in the Panbazar Girls School. After years of sexual abuse, the girl mustered enough courage and informed the School authorities.

The information travelled to senior journalist Gautam Sharma of Amar Asom. He then informed the police, complaints were lodged and eventually, the culprits were arrested.

According to Mr. Sharma, the girl was suffering from epilepsy and both the relatives were trying to have sex with her giving an impression that intercourse would cure her of the disease.

In fact the son of Thaneswar and Bonti Handique also sexually abused her. This minor boy is now absconding.

The girl was all along staying with Thaneshwar Handique. Now she was kept in the state home for destitute and police have suspended both the constables. However, Bonti Gogoi was yet to be arrested.
