Another Gang Rape In India

This seems to happen a lot in India these days.

Indian woman 'raped by two gangs on Christmas Eve'

Police in India say 10 men are in custody, after a 21-year-old woman was raped by two apparently unrelated groups of men on Christmas Eve.

She was visiting friends in Pondicherry when she was abducted by three men and raped by one of them, officials say.

She found her friends after that ordeal but they were all confronted by another group of men who singled her out and gang-raped her, according to police.

The last suspect was arrested on Friday and police say they have confessed.

The suspects have been remanded for 15 days, but they are yet to be formally charged in court. None of the suspects has publicly commented on the allegations made against them by the victim.

Pondicherry Senior Superintendent of Police Monika Bharadwaj told the BBC that this was a particularly bizarre and brutal sequence of events.

It comes just days before India marks the first anniversary of the death of the student whose gang-rape on a bus in Delhi sparked unprecedented public outrage, leading to changes in India's laws against sexual violence.

'Unrelated attacks'

The incident took place in Pondicherry's port city of Karaikel. When the woman was briefly left alone after her friends went into a house, she was abducted by three men.

"One among that group of three people sexually assaulted her," SSP Bharadwaj told BBC Tamil citing the victim's account of the sequence of events.

She managed to make contact with her friends who came to help her after that ordeal.

"When they were going back they were waylaid by a second group, who again picked up the victim and she was taken to a secure place. There again she was sexually assaulted six times."

According to police, the attackers were not known to the victim and these appear to be unrelated attacks.

Two police officers have also been suspended for initially refusing to register the victim's complaint.

The woman was taken to hospital where she was treated for her injuries and is said to be in a stable condition.

This seems to happen a lot in India these days.

 

This always used to happen.

 

But girls were ashamed and afraid to talk about it.

 

If she told the father, he would throw her out of the house.

 

If she went to the police, the police would charge her for (directly or indirectly) trying to seduce the men.

 

The police, as you probably know, is very corrupt in India - and extremely indolent. 

 

Girls had no way open to them but to keep quiet.

 

But since last year, when a girl was gang-raped in a Delhi bus, the awareness to the culture of rapes has finally caught up.

 

The problem is that the entire sub-continent as well as many Afro- Asian countries are terribly sex-starved.

 

That is probably why Islam requires both men and women to marry young.

And the Taliban, AlQaida takes 5 year old baby females by force, keeping them as wives, and commiting fornication same sex rapes in madrasas, which is not even reported in press in Pakistan because that tribal part under Taliban is kept backward since TV and other media are banned.  Is it biddah to report Pakistani daily sex abuses or is it haram to report because it is done in the name of Allah?

But marrying young isn't often a solution, rape is rape and can happen to anyone anywhere & anytime. Even if men and women marry young, a woman could still be raped and it still causes lots of the psychological and physical illnesses as with an unmarried woman. And even some men who are married young, do find other women to be with sexually. It's just an overdose of hormones that causes men to behave like beasts rather than human beings.

 

May Allah (swt) help the women of India...this is so tragic...

Yet another gang-rape (followed by murder) case in India:

 

 

The parents of a 16-year-old girl who died after being gang-raped and set on fire in the eastern Indian city of Calcutta have vowed to fight for justice.

 

Her father told BBC News: "Till my last breath, the sole aim of my life will be to get justice for her."

 

Her mother said her daughter had asked her to "make sure [the] people who did this to me are hanged".

 

A total of eight men have been arrested in connection with the case.

 

Protestors are outraged at the police's alleged mishandling of the case.

 

They are demanding strong action against her alleged attackers.

 

The case came to light after it was revealed that the girl had not taken her own life but had been deliberately set on fire, allegedly by people close to the suspected rapists.

 

It was aggravated when a dispute broke out on Indian television between the parents of the girl and the police over the funeral arrangements.

 

The family accused the police of a cover-up and of wanting to keep the case quiet.

 

The girl was raped on two separate occasions near her home town of Madhyamgram, first on 26 October, then when she was returning from filing a police complaint the next day.

 

Six men accused of raping her were arrested soon after.

 

Nearly two months later on 23 December, the girl was admitted to hospital with burns but succumbed to her injuries on New Year's Eve.

 

The investigating officer, Madhav Santosh Nimbalkar, told the media that the girl had told him that she had been set on fire by two people. Two men were later arrested.

 

The incident comes a year after the brutal gang rape of a student in Delhi that triggered huge protests across the country and raises once again the issue of the rights of women and their security.

 

Correspondents say rape is a common occurrence in India with many cases going unreported.

 

Although India has tightened its anti-rape laws and society is more openly discussing cases of violence against women, women across India still live with the daily fear of sexual assault and victims still often have to deal with police apathy.

And yet another gand rape in Delhi.

 

Indian media is perhaps tiring from the unending stream of news of rape cases because of all Indian media reports I read, most have been describing it with "allegedly". Perhaps desi defence mechanism has set in. There's only so much you can shame yourself nationally.

 

 

New Delhi:... a 51-year-old Danish woman was allegedly gang-raped by a group of men near New Delhi Railway Station late on Tuesday.

...a Danish national, who was here on a tourist visa, had gone to visit a museum and while returning back to her hotel in Paharganj lost her way in the area when a group of men stopped her, robbed and gang-raped her.

 

The woman after returning to her hotel narrated her ordeal to her near ones, who further informed the police.

She was first looted at knife point, and then gang-raped by around six men, police said. Reports Zee News

This is from a week ago:

 

Danish tourist gang-raped in Delhi

 

Police say 51-year-old was attacked after asking for directions

Link to video: Delhi: Danish tourist gang-rape accusations stir up anger

 

Two men have been arrested and at least eight more detained in Delhi after a Danish tourist told police she was gang-raped when she got lost in the Indian capital and asked for directions to her hotel.

 

The attack, which occurred on Tuesday, is the latest of a series of cases that have focused international attention on sexual violence towards women in India.

 

Police officials said the 51-year-old woman was also robbed and beaten in the attack, which happened in the afternoon in narrow streets near Connaught Place, a popular central shopping centre and one of Delhi's tourist attractions. The tourist was returning from India's National Museum on foot.

 

"It was miserable," said Amit Bahl, owner of the Amax hotel where she was staying. "I am really ashamed that this happened."

 

The woman has returned to Denmark.

 

"She has already left India by air and is on her way home," Rajeev Sharma, assistant commissioner with the Delhi police, told the Danish broadcaster TV2. "But we need a medical examination of the Danish woman, so we are still in contact with the Danish embassy."

 

Delhi police confirmed that a robbery and rape case had been registered. "We are questioning a group of men," said Rajan Bhagat, a police spokesman.

 

The problem of sexual violence in India was highlighted by the gang-rape and murder of a 23-year-old physiotherapist on a bus in Delhi in December 2012.

 

The case prompted grief and outrage across India, with thousands taking to the streets in protests demanding tougher laws, better policing and a shift in cultural attitudes. The United Nations asked India, the world's second most populous country, to ensure security for women. But although prison terms for rape have been stiffened, stalking made a criminal offence and gender sensitivity programmes introduced for some police officers, little appears to have change on the ground.

 

Vrinda Grover, a campaigner and lawyer, said the most recent attack showed that "every day is a dangerous day for the women of Delhi". She added: "That this happened where it did is stunning. Women are most vulnerable, but Delhi police are not ensuring basic security. Anyone can be robbed or mugged. We need systematic measures, not soundbites."

 

Every week India's media describe attacks on women across the country, often involving several men and frequently resulting in the death of the victim. On Wednesday, newspapers reported the gang-rape of a teenager in the northern state of Uttar Pradesh. Last week a 13-year-old girl was allegedly gang-raped, tortured and killed in Uttarakhand's Haridwar district. In southern Andhra Pradesh, nine men arrested earlier this month reportedly told police they had raped 59 women in the past two years.

 

The eastern state of West Bengal has emerged as a particular blackspot. Pranab Mukherjee, India's president, recently met the parents of a 16-year-old who was gang-raped twice in October and then set on fire. She died of her injuries. The second rape occurred as she was returning from a police station where she reported the first attack. Authorities have been criticised for failing to ensure her safety.

The exact causes of the wave of sexual violence – and its extent – are hotly debated. Analysts blame rapid urbanisation, fast-changing gender roles, bad urban planning, poor policing and deep-rooted social attitudes.

 

Ranjana Kumari, director of the pro-feminist thinktank the Centre for Social Research, said India's conservative and patriarchal traditions led men to use rape as a tool to instil fear in women.

 

"This mindset is not changing. It's a huge challenge," she said.

 

Between January and October last year, 1,330 rapes were reported in Delhi and its suburbs, compared with 706 for all of 2012, according to government figures. Police officials say the rise may indicate that women are becoming more likely to lodge complaints about crimes.

 

News of the attack on the Danish tourist comes weeks after a Polish woman said she was drugged and raped by a taxi driver while travelling with her two-year-old daughter to New Delhi.

 

Last year saw a series of incidents involving foreigners. In March a British woman jumped out of the window of her hotel room in Agra – home to the Taj Mahal – to avoid an assault by a staff member, and a Swiss woman who was cycling with her husband in central India was gang-raped. In June an American woman was gang-raped by three men while hitch-hiking back to her hotel in the Himalayan valley of Kullu.

 

The tourism ministry has launched a publicity campaign – I Respect Women – after industry surveys showed a steep drop in the number of tourists coming to India.

 

A study by India's Associated Chambers of Commerce and Industry said that foreign tourist visits to India had dropped 25% in the three months after the rape and murder of the Delhi woman. Tourist visits by women fell by 35%.

India reels from another horrific gang rape case in wave of sexual violence

 

Tribal elders ordered a 20-year-old woman to be raped in public by up to 12 men for an 'unauthorised' relationship, police say

 

A 20-year-old woman has been raped in public by as many as 12 men on the orders of tribal elders in a village in eastern India, according to local police.

 

The attack, in Birbhum district about 120 miles from Kolkata, was a punishment for an “unauthorised” relationship with a man from another village and the woman's subsequent failure to pay a 50,000 rupee (£490) fine, local media reports said.

 

“According to the woman, the [village head] summoned her and her [lover] on Monday and detained them through the day and night. After her family said they could not pay the fine, the [head] allegedly ordered the mass rape on Tuesday,” police superintendant C Sudhakar told The Hindustan Times newspaper

 

Eleven men have been arrested so far, including the village head. The victim remains in hospital. She has told local reporters she lost count of her attackers, who appear to have included several of her neighbours.

 

India has been hit by a wave of sexual violence – particularly gang rapes – in recent years. Last week a 51-year-old tourist in Delhi was raped by at least five men while walking back to her hotel. Several other similar attacks on foreigners had hit headlines over previous months.

 

The gang rape and murder of a 23-year-old in December 2012 prompted grief and outrage across the country, with thousands taking to the streets in protests demanding tougher laws, better policing and a shift in cultural attitudes. The United Nations asked India, the world's second most populous country, to ensure security for women. But although prison terms for rape have been stiffened, stalking made a criminal offence and gender sensitivity programmes introduced for some police officers, little appears to have changed on the ground.

 

The state of West Bengal, where this most recent attack took place, appears a particular black spot. Last month a worker at a gym was abducted and raped by five men in a truck.

 

In October, a woman was raped twice by the same group of men, once as she returned from a police station where she had recorded a statement about the first attack, and was then set on fire. She eventually died of her injuries.

 

West Bengal is governened by the Trinamool Congress party (TMC), which has been under fire for failing to halt the rising violence against women.

Derek O'Brien, a TMC parliamentarian, promised “swift action ... zero tolerance", in a message on Twitter on Thursday.

 

The causes of the wave of sexual violence – and its extent – are hotly debated.

 

Many commentators say it is a consequence of the efforts of a growing number of women, even in remote areas, to claim basic freedoms denied for centuries. Others point to India's acute gender imbalance, tenacious caste system and entrenched patriarchal culture. Conservatives have blamed "western influences", women's clothing and even fast food.

 

Informal village courts run by local male elders, such as that which ordered this most recent attack, are common across much of rural India and are frequently responsible for inflicting cruel, sometimes lethal, punishments for supposed social transgressions such as marrying without their prior consent. Such courts also frequently oblige relatives to take violent action to restore the “honour” of a community.
