Kalain minor girl rape case

SILCHAR, April 23: "All possible angles are being explored and examined to arrive at definite conclusion about the motive of the culprits involved in the alleged rape of a 9–year–old girl hailing from the village of Malua in the district of Karimganj who was found abandoned in the tea bushes of Kalain tea estate under Katigorah police station of Cachar, 60 km from here," Diganta Bora, Superintendent of Police of Cachar, told The Sentinel here. The medical report of the victim collected from Silchar Medical College and Hospital where she was undergoing treatment did not conclusively prove that she was raped though her body bore grievous injuries. Still, as he said nothing would be left out of the purview of investigation now going on. He refused to share details about the investigation in progress, but claimed it was moving in right direction. Clues available till now would help in nabbing the criminals soon, he added to say.
Kabindra Purkayastha, BJP MP, who represents Cachar, when contacted over telephone in Delhi, expressed his deep shock and sorrow at the heinous assault on a minor girl and demanded that the criminals should be arrested and meted out exemplary punishment. He pointed out if the girl was not raped but brutally subjected to injuries, the police could easily slap attempt to murder charges against the criminals. He did talk to the SP and desired that the case should be expeditiously dealt with and those behind the crime put behind the bar. He would meet the Union Home Minister, Sushil Kumar Shinde, on Wednesday in order to apprise him of the incident. The Union Home Minister was expected to make a statement on the growing incidents of crimes against women in the House with a possible reference to Kalain, but it could not be possible as the Speaker had to adjourn the House due to the ruckus of the opposition over JPC report.
The 9–year–old girl was on a visit to her grandfather, Hira Mohan Das, at Pechacherra garden, along with her mother and younger brother a week ago. While she was outdoor busy at play, two miscreants with their faces covered lifted her forcefully and made her sit in a waiting auto–rickshaw and taken to the lonely and almost deserted tea bushes of Kalain tea estate. She was spotted by a female worker of the garden, lying disrobed and bleeding. She raised a hue and cry which attracted other workers. The nearest Kalain police outpost was informed and she was first taken to the primary health centre of the area and then shifted to Silchar Medical College and Hospital where her condition was stated to be stable.
On the basis of the FIR filed by Hira Mohan Das with Kalain police outpost, the police took up investigation. In the meantime, BJP along with various student, youth and social organizations have been on agitation against the criminal assault on the girl in particular and rising crimes against women in general. Besides expressing their anger and anguish, these bodies have called for stringent action against the criminals involved in the crime.
Dr Kamal Nath, Head of the Department of Psychiatric, speaking about the mental and physical shock sustained by the unfortunate girl, said the injuries suffered by her even if she was not raped would remain a traumatic experience with her which she would find it difficult to overcome. This might also affect her studies and even future career, he pointed out. The question that hinges in public mind is all about the motive of the criminals which remains a mystery and enigmatic.
