Schoolgirl raped in Hosenabad, Hooghly

Crowd runs amok in protest

Hosenabad within the jurisdiction of the police station of Polba in the district of Hooghly following the public outrage from noon to evening on Thursday or June 12 is tensed yet and even if local police and administration has beefed up security measures, the infuriation refuses to die down. The problem started at 1 pm on Thursday when locals in large numbers blocked the crossway between the busy GT Road and Delhi Road all of a sudden demanding justice and arrest of Sheikh Niyamat Ali who had raped a schoolgirl named Sangita (name changed) on last Monday. The blockade continued till 6 pm disrupting the entire thoroughfare for the next few hours as well. The assailant’s stationery shop was first ransacked and then burnt down by the irate mob. Even if two fire brigade vans rushed to the spot to bring the fire under control, the furious mob stopped them from going on with the job. The blockade was withdrawn only when higher police officials reached the spot and assured the public of arresting the culprit soon.

It has been learnt from locals, Sheikh Niyamat Ali (age 45) used to have a stationery shop at Hosenabad behind the crossing of GT Road and Delhi Road. On June 9 or Monday, Sangita, a schoolgirl of Class IV and living at Majherpara within Hosenabad, went to his shop to purchase bubblegum. As none was there, Niyamat Ali asked her to get into the shop and the helpless and innocent girl was raped by him repeatedly. When her family members learnt the crime, an FIR was registered against him in the local police station of Polba. But the culprit had fled by that time. Strikingly, even if an FIR was lodged against such a heinous crime, police was found to be apathetic, enough to enrage locals in the area. On Wednesday, parents of Sangita along with locals visited the Superintendent of Police’s office for justice. It has come to knowledge, the mob was handled rudely there.  

On Thursday, in the morning, locals along with parents of Sangita went to the Chinsurah Police Line to vent their anger against sloppy approaches of police. Then, they were joined by others and the demand for a quick justice intensified. As soon as the fuming mob returned, the road blockade at the crossway between the busy GT Road and Delhi Road initiated. They were found to demand justice and also reprimand police for failing to arrest the culprit or Niyamat Ali. Moreover, since Niyamat Ali’s relatives were warning Sangita’s parents with dire consequences, the protest reached a new height. Protestors were joined by others and soon, the shop of Niyamat Ali was plundered and burnt down. All materials from the shop including sugar, potatoes, rice were brought to the thoroughfare and set to fire.

To quell the fury, Tanmay Sarkar, DSP (Headquarters) rushed to the spot. But he could not achieve success. Later he was joined by Tathagata Basu, Police Super (Headquarters) and Debasree Sanyal, DSP (D&T). Albeit the police officers tried best to diffuse the anger and halt the blockade, locals could not be restrained. Only when Tathagata Basu assured the mob of arresting the culprit within next two days and before press and media, the blockade was lifted.  An intense search to arrest the culprit has begun.

Another outrage in Bengal - Hindu Monk of Ramakrishna Order stripped and beaten mercilessly for Ashram land.

A panic may strike now the common Hindu people for the ongoing incidents of South Bengal for the last two months when the CPI(M), the ruling party of the state tasted a bad defeat by losing the muslim support in this region through Panchayet election. When the wining force of All India Trinamul congress (AITMC known as TMC), is considering all the prime posts for the muslim minorities in every stage of Panchayet system, the losing CPIM has already adopted the way of direct torture against hindu people out of any situation for winning the heart of muslim people and to regain the muslim support by giving various packages to the muslim minority.
On June 12, 2008 one Muslim leader of CPI(M) Sk. Ismail initiated the attack upon Hindu pilgrims in Gangasagar with the help of some 3000 fanatical muslim mob. Now they have tried to capture the Gorerhat Ramakrishna Ashram Campus by attempting murder of Swami Punnyalokanandaji, the Adhyaksha (in-charge) of the religious unit at Gorerhat under Joyn…

Hindus in Panchla reel under terror

The whole of Panchla, at the moment, is staggering under a fear of death. The expression may appear to be impolite to many readers but the cruel truth can neither be avoided nor be concocted. The visit of a team of Hindu Samhati to the worst-hit areas today itself has brought such heartrending and horrific accounts out.  The earlier report was based on firsthand information while assaults on Hindus were in full swing but now the details reveal a greater horror. Contrary to beliefs that murderous assaults were limited to a handful of villages, it’s now evident that lots of areas populated by Hindus were attacked by the lethal mob simultaneously and they include the village of Biki Hakola including wards like Raypara, Kolepara, Pachhalpara, Choto Gabberia, Beltala, Daspara, Hazrapara and Gabberia Kacharigora. And all these encompass an area of 10 Everything happened as part of grievous and premeditated strategies and hence, the brutal mob was well prepared from the very beginning…
