Assam Pradesh Mahila Congress President Mira Borthakur Goswami on Tuesday submitted a memorandum to the State Women’s Commission in connection with the Tinsukia rape.
According to sources, Mira submitted the memorandum for the role played by police to arresting the accused who were involved in the rape case of a minor in Tinsukia.
It is alleged that the accused in the rape case is the president of a local BJP booth committee, identified as Samendra Roy alias Samudra Roy, who committed the heinous crime.
The Mahila Congress committee has demanded a proper investigation into the matter and arrest the accused.
They further said that the police also didn’t investigate the death of a family member of the victim who is alleged to have been killed by the accused.
On Monday, the Assam Pradesh Congress Committee (APCC) President Bhupen Borah formed a seven-member team to meet the victim’s family who was raped a few days back.
In a press conference, he said, “The incident was reported sometime back, there was a case of a 11-year old teenager being raped in the Bordubi area of Tinsukia district, by a BJP booth president. Although an FIR has been lodged at the Bordubi PS, far from arresting the accused, the police haven’t initiated any action. Moreover, many BJP workers have exerted pressure on the family to withdraw the case.”
Unable to bear the situation, the mother of the victim allegedly committed suicide on April 14, APCC informed.
“The inaction of Assam police is inexplicable,” APCC added in the press statement.
