A 14 year tribal school girl in Koraput was brutally raped by four men. Guess what? The rapists are men in uniform, a unit of CRPF. The culprits are not arrested yet. Rape was confirmed in the medical report. But the regional DIG of police has washed police hand off from the case by stating that the two Jawan camps are 25 kilometers from the place of rape and so the jawans can’t be held responsible.
The logic of this high official is ridiculous. Koraput is a Naxal affected area and the army have vehicles at their disposal. The Jawans patrol the area in motorcycles. The place where rape happened falls in their jurisdiction. The raped girl has clearly said four men in uniform has raped her in a isolated are in the jungle.
The girl was returning home alone from a nearby town named Kunduli, when the rapist Jawans intercepted her, and took her to isolated area in jungle and took turns to rape her brutally. Her family also said that the four rapists are in Jawans. This is not first time these evil police forces have raped any tribal girl. In nearby district Malkangiri, personnel belonging to CRPF have raped many tribal girls. Their atrocities on tribal women in Chattisgarh is well documented, but the rapist forces are roaming free.
The Odisha Govt and police are trying to suppress the incident because it is a blot to their image. First they blamed the naxals for rape. The Naxals strongly denied their role. But now they are blaming victim’s kin. Four of the relatives of victim were detained and intogorrated. It is nothing but harassment and threat to these hapless people to change their statement.
It is shame the Chief Minister of state Navin Pattnaik has not done anything except condemning . The live of tribal and Dalits have cheap to these evil race. Imagine their mindset when they can rape a 15 years school girl so brutally and mercilessly. More shocking is their holier than thou attitude and disowning the incident blaming the victim instead. This is typical solipsist Hindu mentality.
The entire state machinery, police and judiciary are anti-Dalits and anti-tribals. Tribal are indigenous people of the Koraput region. The Manuwadis have gone to settle there and have established their base in Koraput and small nearby towns like Patangi, Semiliguda etc. Their main objective is to garb lands of tribal through devious methods and procure goods produced by tribal people at very cheaper rate and sell them high on urban market.
The tribal of Koraput are slowly losing their habitats and lands. The innocent people can’t fight the evil Manuwadi with polic, judiciary and army in their hand.
