Chengail Molestation incident update
Protest against bail of molester grows violent in Chengail
Police van ransacked; 2 arrested
Following the unexpected release of Mohammad Lalbabu Munshi (culprit of molesting Shilpi – student of Class IV at Chengail Kiran Sashi Siksha Mandir) and unwillingness of both school authority and police to ensure safety of girl students in the locality, simmering anger of people burst out on July 31 morning when local youths brought out a protest march against brazen developments. Local youths went to both Chengail Kiran Sashi Siksha Mandir and
(opened after Panchayat election and counting) to close down the
two educational institutions as a mark of protest. Even if an examination was
going on in the high school, school authority folded the institution to support
the protest march. Chengail

It has been learnt, local police was phoned repeatedly to be a witness to the protest. But their late arrival proved to be enough to deteriorate the situation. The infuriated mob terming the late arrival as reluctance, grew violent and damaged the main gate of Chengail Kiran Sashi Siksha Mandir within minutes. Police vans couldn't evade this intense anger as well; windowpane of a police vehicle was damaged.
Then large contingent of police and RAF deployed in the area. Gourab Dey and Bablu Dhara were arrested by P.S. Uluberia. In evening massive raids were conducted in houses of Hindu localities of Chengail by police. Hindus are scared to stay home at night. Situation is tense.
Hindu Samhati regularly monitors and reports violations against Hindus in West Bengal. We also work with both governmental and NGO agencies for proper education on protection and ensure remedies to the Hindu populace as per prevailing law of the land.
