Tribal girl stripped and beaten in ASSAM.


A young Adivasi woman ran down a Guwahati street naked, stripped by ethnic rioters, while leering city youths clicked away with their cellphone cameras.

As television today brought to Assam homes one more scene of Saturday’s street horror — when hundreds of tribals were attacked over a 3.5km stretch of the city — police arrested the woman’s three tormentors.

“The three had pounced on her like a pack of dogs and started stripping her. All her pleas fell on deaf ears till they had stripped her naked. Only then did they let her go,” said a police officer quoting eyewitnesses to the mob retaliation to a violent Adivasi students’ march.

The woman sprinted away from a large group of jeering men and ran on in panic till somebody threw her a piece of clothing.

The sight left homemaker Ananya Baruah dumbfounded on her second-floor balcony at Beltola, the epicentre from where the rioting spilled over several localities.

“She was running like mad. Some people were clicking pictures with their cellphones. It was one of the worst crimes any civilised society could have committed. I felt so helpless just watching. The girl disappeared into one of the by-lanes.”

The victim was probably a participant in the armed Adivasi procession in demand of Scheduled Tribe status that had turned violent and damaged private and public property, including cars.

As the police began dispersing the tribals, angry local mobs chased down the stragglers among them. Adivasi men, women and children were dragged across streets and mercilessly beaten up with the police refusing to intervene. The violence left some 300 injured and a 12-year-old boy dead.

The ethnic conflict claimed a second life this morning. Santosh Kumar, 17, was dragged out of a vehicle on a highway for “defying” an Adivasi-enforced bandh that was yet to begin, and hacked to death.

Chief minister Tarun Gogoi announced the arrests of the trio who had stripped the woman and offered the victim Rs 1 lakh in compensation. Prasenjit Chakravarty, Sandip Chakdar and Ratul Barman were nabbed on the basis of video footage and eyewitness accounts.

Ratul, a waiter at Mahalaxmi Hotel in Beltola, is barely 18. The main accused is Prasenjit, 28, owner of Dainty Fast Food restaurant in the same locality. Sandip, 20, owns a paan shop near the hotel where Ratul works.

The charges against them range from outraging a woman’s modesty to attempt to murder.

Gogoi announced a judicial probe into the violence by the All Adivasi Students’ Association of Assam as well as the mob backlash. The state government has announced a compensation of Rs 3 lakh for the families of the dead.

I think you were out of your senses to reprint the photograph here. Did you stop to ask yourself if the photographer could not come to the girls rescue and give his or her own clothes? The naked lust, desire for publicity and opportunism of the photographer is reveled in his action of taking this picture. You are subscribing to the culture of humanity less journalism by reprinting the photo on your website. For all the lofty expressions in your website, you are just another leering a**hole.

you are quite the fellow who thinks "one sided". sure it may b humiliating to post this degrading picture. but if no one knows just whats happening in the world, then its just the same as being ignorant and blind. no one to actually reach out and dealt with the problem.

Que said...

I think Amit has done the right thing by posting the photograph....I remember reading abt the incident in the newspapers here in Goa and I didnt think twice abt it....but today when I saw this photo I was shell shocked....my blood is boiling now....those people are worse than animals and I dont know how I would stop myself from cutting off their balls if someone brought em in front of me.....
...and all this only after I saw the photo....

Amit Shekhar said...

Bingo on the right spot.Thanks Que for the support.

whtevr happened is nt acceptable. Guilty shld be hanged straightaway. Howevr, i expct 2 c more blogs on ppl who suffrd in agitators' hnd, whose properties were destroyed by agitators and women who were dragged out of there house by agitators and beaten on road in beltola area. I also wd like 2 c more blogs on assamese women being raped n molested in train n by army. I hate ppl who commit crimes agnst women. Bt prhaps our(assamese) women r mnt 4 molestation only n dnt dsrve rspct. Till tht time pls stp arguing.

I have to wonder if you would have posted the picture had she not been a young and obviously beautiful young lady.
Still image aside i think what was done to her was deplorable and am glad to hear the those responsible have been caught.

This is very shocking news that happened in india.please remove this photo of the inocent tribal girl.Merceless assam people,they will deserve the punishment.it a real shame to assam people.

Amit Shekhar said...

truth is bitter but its truth!!!!!

Anonymous said...

Every time I see this picture, I feel so sorry for the girl, I sure hope someone tossed her a blanket or something soon, perhaps even carrying her as the road doesn't look good for running in barefeet.

I wished there were something I could do to help her.

The guys must be stripped and tied to a post and should be made to stand for a week, in Guwahati.

chandra prava said...

dear shona
u should not blame assam or the assamese for that shameless incident.i understand that whatever the adivasi girl faced was just too much for any woman.it should not have happened.but what i know is that the local people become angry because of the damage to the public/private property that was being done by the adivasi people.they could have taken some peaceful way to reach the government.their approach was absolutely wrong.public got angry and they reacted.here one thing is to be noticed that no male adivasi was stripped.only a lady faced it.my understanding is that it was the dirty mentality of the 3 guys which made them do that.it has nothing to do with adivashi's demand or public anger.it is simply cheap mentality of a handful guys regarding girls.

every thing is OK but please show the uncensored picture of that girl.

Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
