Dalit rape victim writes to Schedules Castes commission

Rape victim approaches castes commission
Hisar, Nov 8: Unable to take the insult anymore, a dalit gang rape survivor in Haryana wrote to the National Commission for the Scheduled Castes (NCSC) for justice. She has accused the Hisar district administration and her college of being indifferent to her suffering, reports Times of India.

In a letter written to NCSC, the girl has alleged that she was forced to stop going to college after being taunted by other students belonging to upper castes.

NCSC north zone director Raj Kumar Channena has assured the survivor that her allegations will be probed and he would take up her case with the administration.

Upper caste students at college used filthy language against the girl


The dalit girl, who was raped by a group in Dabra village of Hisar district, said "The Delhi gangrape victim was taken to Singapore for treatment as her health deteriorated, but I am still being treated at the general hospital here. There is no proper medical facility provided to me despite my poor health."

She further alleged that she had stopped going to her college for the past three weeks as some upper caste students had used filthy language against her. "I even informed the college principal about it, but all in vain," she added.

Accusing the administration of callousness, she said four persons accused in the case had been acquitted on May 3 and alleged that her family was receiving threats from them. "We have been given a gunman for security, which is not enough. My family is suffering a lot," she said.

A dalit activist and her lawyer Rajat Kalsan said the district authorities had assured job to a family member of the survivor, but the promise was yet to be fulfilled.

When contacted, Channena said, "I have just received the complaint via e-mail. I am studying its contents and will issue a notice to the authorities to look into the matter and address the girl's concern at the earliest."
