Ms. Mamta Sharma,


National Commission for Women,

New Delhi.

 Dear Mamta ji,

This is to bring to your notice an incident of gangrape at Amta in Howrah district in West Bengal. A 27 year old house wife and her mother in law aged 43 years were brutally gang raped on 4th February, 2014. They were admitted in the Ulberia Hospital with severe injuries. The miscreants, 10 in number not only raped them but also brutalized them in the most inhuman ways possible.   The house was ransacked and looted. They shut the electric transformer down at the time of the incident and the whole house was in the dark.  The young mother small child was also thrown into the courtyard mercilessly by the goon along with the mother.  The distance of the Police check post was 500 meters only. No one came to saved them in the spot.

It is alleged that Trinamul Congress (TMC) leader Barun Makhal who also fought Panchayat election was also involved in this incident. After the Panchayat elections TMC supporters began to attack the villagers who supported the opposition. So the males of the village were evicted from Muktirchak village. False cases were lodged against them. The role of the police in this barbaric incident needs to be condemned. Journalist were not permitted to meet the rape survivors.

We express our doubt whether there will be a fair enquiry into the case and guilty be punished as per law. Since the accused are politically sheltered by the ruling party in the state government. We sincerely want NCW to look into the case and see that the real culprits are identified and a swift investigation is conducted so that the real culprits may be punished.

We request the NCW to take note of the extremely unsafe and precarious condition of women in West Bengal and urge that appropriate intervention be undertaken and finally we demand speedy justice for the  rape survivor  in this horrendous case.
