Incompetent Punjab Police Pressure East Punjabi Rape Victim To Commit Suicide

AMRITSAR, India (AFP) - A 17-year-old Indian girl who was gang-raped committed suicide after police pressured her to drop the case and marry one of her attackers, police and a relative said on Thursday.

Amid the ongoing uproar over the gang-rape of a student on a bus in New Delhi earlier this month, the latest case has again shone the spotlight on the police's handling of sex crimes.

One police officer has been sacked and another suspended over their conduct after the assault during the festival of Diwali on November 13 in the Patiala region in the Punjab, according to officials.

The teenager was found dead on Wednesday night after swallowing poison.

Inspector General Paramjit Singh Gill said that the teenager had been "running from pillar to post to get her case registered" but officers failed to open a formal inquiry.

"One of the officers tried to convince her to withdraw the case," Gill, the police chief for the area, told AFP.

Before her death, there had been no arrests over her case although three people were detained on Thursday. Two of them were her alleged male attackers and the third was a suspected woman accomplice.

The victim's sister told Indian television that the teenager had been urged to either accept a cash settlement or marry one of her attackers.

"The police started pressuring her to either reach a financial settlement with her attackers or marry one of them," her sister told the NDTV network.

Meanwhile, the Press Trust of India reported that a police officer has been suspended for allegedly refusing to register a rape complaint in the northern state of Chhattisgar.

The woman and her husband later brought the case to the attention of a more senior officer and a hunt has now been launched for her attacker, an auto rickshaw driver.

Official figures show that 228,650 of the total 256,329 violent crimes recorded last year in India were against women.

The real figure is thought to be much higher as so many women are reluctant to report attacks to the police.

During an address to the chief ministers of India's states on Thursday, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh pledged to bring in new laws to cover attacks on women.

Now where are those ba$tards over here who think a girl getting raped is justified because people of India "deserve" it?

Sir, I don't want to name anyone as they are the "highly demanded" scholars on this board who feel that the people of India, specifically the middle class of Delhi deserved it.

Must be another khalistani right wing nut bar.

Btw just for record I believe in Sikh sovereignty Khalistan but I be the first one to flee and seek refuge outside if right wing nut bar goons who justify rape are in control.

Get your facts straight! I wrote that those protesters never protested when Sikh women were raped and Sikhs murdered in Delhi in 1984. They never protest when rapes ten times worst are committed in the slum areas of India. They are only protesting because one of their middle class girls have been raped and now they demand 'justice' and feel that the streets of Delhi are unsafe for them! They didn't feel the streets were unsafe when Sikhs had burning tyres placed around their necks.

Get your facts straight!

Did I mention your name? I don't need any facts when I read someone saying that the people of Delhi "deserved" such a ghastly incident to hit them. No one is denying that Dalit and Sikh bibis have faced such horrors as well, however, the brutal gang-rape of this innocent girl is NO payback for them. Sikhs regard the mother/sisters/daughters of even their enemies as their own, so how could a Sikh, even in his/her dreams, say that some girl, just because she was non-Sikh, "deserved" to be raped just to make people feel the same way we felt when our womenfolk were dishonored? I don't know about you, but rape is such a heinous crime which no one would wish upon even their worst enemy or his/her daughter/sister. Moreover, these kids protesting are college students, which means they were all born much after 1984. Who are you expecting to protest?

My brother please go easy with the swearing! If you are indeed a "Singh" then I think you should know better and have more respect for your fellow brothers and sisters (especially the younger readers) on this forum. If you disagree with something written or feel that passionately about something posted then why not show the original poster the error of their ways by holding what they have said against the infallible litmus test that is Gurbani.

Big bro, I apologize if the swearing made you feel offended, however I was at a complete loss for words when I read the words "deserve" and "rape" in the same sentence.

I didn't see any protest when thousands of Sikh ladies were raped in Delhi. I am glad they are protesting, but I think it is hypocritical when the culprits who raped and killed Sikhs are still not punished. However, I am not saying that they should not punish the criminals who raped this poor lady, I am just saying that Sikh ladies who got raped need justice too.

I dont think anyone actually believes that. A massive jump in logic that is and I cant believe you actually believe that Khalistanis are so perverse. This rape happened in India and had nothing to to with Khalistanis. Maybe that should be the point you should start off from. It really is weird that you came up with that comment after reading the article posted.

For those who cant break it down the article reflects the following:

A married woman in East Punjab was raped in a possible gang attack.

She went to the Punjab Police who were reluctant to do anything. In a normal country the police investigate these accusations. In East Punjab the police do nothing. This is not the Khalistani's fault. If anything it is the fault of East Punjabis for putting up with a rubbish cop service that is meant to look out for them.

The victim, shamed and dissillusioned, took her own life. The rapists are unlikely to be found and the Punjab Police are in full 'cover their backsides' mode. The political parties, jathas, nihangs and SGPC of East Punjab will pay lip service but nothing will be done.

Indian Punjabis moan that NRIs dont invest in EP. This is a clear example of why not. If you cant even lock up the criminals and protect the victims then nobody can take Punjab seriously.

We must make sure we live by gurmat ideals not by words but actually "actions" as well- one reaction, one voice, one vision for all humanity (and off course including our own Sikhs) , and we must make sure when we post our views regarding this type of incidents and we are utmost sensitive towards rape victims, their family- wear victim shoes before posting our views.

Please look at the link below:

http://www.facebook.com/groups/thebigsikhdebate

I don't know about others, at times- it appears we come across as we are more concerned about politicising about this type of incident than actually genuinely caring for victim...Surely there is a time and place for everything but at this point... I am sure Victim or Victim families does not appreciate people coming across as "opportunist" using victim as token /using victim at their expense and come up insensitive politicized pieces (see below) and funneling masses with atrocities committed against their own community which inadvertently or advertently undermines atrocities committed against individual victim not because of the act itself but the very premises of "bad timing" as i said earlier there is a time and place for everything.

Now picture above, just replace sikhs genocide with jew Holocaust and on the picture on the right- replace- modern day nazi KKK killing a jew and put it together and compare. Does this not undermine - atrocity committed against individual victim and does this not come across as insensitive towards victim and victim family? I think so its poor taste comparison, bad timing..could be interpreted in many ways.

Picture 2- This one is really classic. I think we across as to really hit low at this one-

in the wake of the tragic gang rape of a 23 year old girl in delhi, the country cries for protection. but our gurus' foresight to empower both man and woman with equal spiritual and temporal powers to protect oneself and another from tyranny and attack is still a relevant ideal today.


that's why being a khalsa helps. dare anyone approach the guru's singhnee, at least she has a chance to protect herself, even when alone or outnumbered. civil law is impotent. the rights our gurus gave to wear kirpan for protection is beyond any land's law. bearing any other arms like guns come with all sorts of legal implications and impracticality. kirpan for a khalsa was designed for all times. trouble for many is, the path of the guru is not easy and we end up turning to the lame laws to protect its citizens which is not happening.

kirpan is not a weapon, but an article of faith. it can be used by a khalsa if the need arises, and more often than not, the need never arises because once the cowards see you are prepared, they will not dare come close. and where the need does arise, no law can sue a khalsa for protecting oneself with a kirpan, when no one else turned to their rescue. one can walk the streets assured that he/she is prepared to go down fighting if attacked – as cowards attack only the defenceless, and when a khalsa is tyar-bar-tyaar, the hyenas take to their heels when they see a real lion.

khalsa sajjo, nirbhae, nirvair banno.

Pushing principle of being shastardhari on victim expense, using victim as token is highly insensitive again extremely bad timing, approach, bad everything all around.. take the above picture to show victim families and victim with the caption attached and lets see their reaction- thanks again for victimizing them twice and then All it takes another right wing nut bar goes to further extreme- aah she wasn't shastardhari what do you expect and carry on with their daily chores/rituals... despite of that fact- many victims around 1984 were shastardhari as well still were raped. This above 2nd peace reminds of nihang niddar singh low attempt to push shastar vidya in the expense of victim- Satwant Singh Kaleka (who died defending other innocent victims), using victim as token to push his shastarvidya, again nothing wrong with shastarvidya itself but people insensitive post coming across as "pushing their own agenda at the expense of victim".

You might think that it's insensitive to bring out the way the justice system has treated two events 28 years apart but your logic as usual is extremely faulty. It is not to belittle what happened to the girl but to show those protesting that if they feel Delhi streets are unsafe for them then maybe they should have ensured that they didn't vote for the Congress murderers in each and every election. If you put those who led the murderers in Delhi in 1984 into ministerships then don't expect your city to be a haven of peace.

You might not see the hypocrisy of the Indian media and the protesters when they protest for justice when they know full well that the rapists will receive a summary trial. Unfortunately this will not be the case for the rapists and murderers of 1984.

Proactive veer ji, its not like these protesters have any choice at the first place to vote for party who are champions of human rights..now do they?..They got bjp and congress politicians both are scum of this earth, both have innocent blood on their hands. Congress have innocent sikhs blood on their hands, BJP have innocent muslims blood on their hands.

Also, i think its imperative we wear shoes of victim who was raped and try to see the suitation from their eyes before posting. As i said there is a time and place for everything..its just my own conscience won't allow me to show people bigger picture at the expense of the victim/victim families or using her example to compare, atleast not at this moment while she is clinging to her life in Intensive Care Unit..!!!!!!!!!

No matter w.t.f you say now, doesn't excuse the fact that you actually stated that the people of Delhi "DESERVED" this. You are no different to those rapists who said they wanted to "teach her a lesson" you piece of $h!t.

Please do, I should infact be the one refraining to post on here where a rapist mindset that calls rape as "deserving" is allowed to post. Please ban me ASAP.

You are one sick puppy my friend. I don't need to defend anything I have written, I was explaining it to you but I forgot that a fool will never understand and like a dog will keep barking the same bukwas. I hope the mods ban a muppet like you and get some order in this forum.
