In a key development, the National Commission of Women on Tuesday took cognizance of the incident where a woman was beaten, made to strip and parade in the Alipurduar district of West Bengal. Chairperson of the commission Rekha Sharma wrote to the police department probing the case, pulled them up for not taking action, and directed them to arrest the accused immediately. NCW in the letter to the police wrote,"The national commission for women has yet again come across a media report captioned 'West Bengal: Woman in Alipurduar paraded naked, beaten up; three arrested' wherein it has been stated that a woman was paraded naked and brutally beaten up. Further, the report mentions that 3 accused are in police custody and 8 other accused named in the FIR are absconding. Pointing out that it is unable to comprehend atrocities perpetrated in the state of West Bengal, the commission condemned the 'pitiable' state of law and order in the state.
Kolkata: Yet another example of mob justice prevailing in India has come to light from the state of West Bengal where a woman was manhandled and mercilessly assaulted by locals allegedly over her illicit affair with a villager. A video of the incident shot under the limits of Nanoor police station in Bolpur subdivision of Birbhum district on Friday is going viral on social media platforms. Inputs suggest that the woman was a resident of the village until when she allegedly eloped with a local. She returned years later with the hope of being forgiven and accepted by her family members. However, it seems that they held her accountable for engaging in an extramarital affair. The matter got out of hand on Friday afternoon when an argument between her and the locals went awry. In the video, scores of villagers, mostly women, can be seen manhandling the victim and thrashing her black and blue even as a handful of people attempt to rescue her from the wrath of the impatient mob. She was then stripped naked and paraded across the village.
