MEDICAL STUDENT GANG-RAPED IN MANIPAL INDIA

MANIPAL, India -  A 22-year-old medical student was allegedly abducted and gang-raped by three people when she was on way to her flat from the college library late Thursday, a police official said Friday.
“We have registered a criminal case against unidentified people and have made some headway in the investigation on the basis of the information the victim gave in her complaint and after questioning one of the college security guards,” Udupi Superintendent of Police MB Boralingaiah said.
  • The incident occurred when the victim, a fourth-year student of the Kasturba Medical College, was waiting to hire an auto outside the Manipal University campus gate to return to her flat from the library around 11.30pm.
  • “The victim said in the complaint that she was abducted by the accused, driven to an isolated spot and gang-raped after midnight. Though she managed to reach her flat later, she gave the complaint early Friday,” Boralingaiah said.
  • The victim’s family, who lives in the neighbouring state of Kerala, have been informed about the incident. She is currently recovering from injuries on her hands and neck.
  • Meanwhile, amid allegations of rape, two minor girls were found dead and a third is battling for her life in West Bengal, police said Friday, but they ruled out the possibility of sexual offence in two cases.
  • A student who had checked into a hotel in Nadia district’s Mayapur died Thursday of excessive bleeding. Following her death, the family lodged a complaint of rape. Police however ruled it out.
  • According to police, the 17-year-old girl, a resident of Kalna in Burdwan district had come to Mayapur Wednesday with three male friends without informing her parents. On Thursday morning, she was taken to Krishnagar Sadar Hospital in Nadia district by her friends where doctors declared her dead.
In another incident in North 24-Parganas, a 12-year-old girl was found strangulated to death Thursday in her house with her clothes torn apart, prompting her family to suspect rape.
In yet another incident in Gaighata again in the district, an eight-year-old girl was allegedly raped and now is battling for life in a city hospital with critical injuries.
Members of civil society, and rights organisations Friday marched in large numbers through the streets of Kolkata protesting atrocities on women and a spate of rape cases recently.
Poets, painters, authors, film and theatre personalities, singers, and social activists walked alongside thousands of common people decrying the incidents of sexual violence and the “insensitive” reactions of the Trinamool Congress regime of Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee. A number of rape victims and their families from various corners of the state also took part.
  • The gang-rape and murder of a college girl from Kamduni village in North 24-Parganas district June 7 acted as the trigger for the mammoth rally.
  • Chief Minister Banerjee visited the village Monday, but ended up shouting at women protesting against the incident and seeking to talk to her. An enraged Banerjee screamed “shut up” at the women and called them Maoists and CPI-M activists, drawing flak from the civil society, media and the opposition.
