Kolkata, March 17: The criminals who stormed into the convent school in Ranaghat in West Bengal had reportedly wanted to identify the eldest nun and when they came to know about her, they first locked her along with four others and then took her to a separate room for a gangrape.
The probing officers of the Crime Investigation Department (CID) were first surprised to learn that the 74-year-old nun was picked up for gangrape. They suspect that the criminals had not entered the convent school for the purpose of burglary and that the elderly nun might have an old enmity.
Recently, a few security guards of the school were sacked after they were accused of misbehaving with students and overlooking their duties. The school authorities had reportedly received some threat calls in Hindi after the incident. Was the gangrape a retaliation for that?
Here are seven questions that the officers probing the gangrape case trying to answer:
- Was burglary the main purpose of the attack in the school?
- Why only the elderly nun was picked up to be gangraped?
- Did the 74-year-old nun have any old enmity?
- Who gave a threat call to the school on March 13?
- Is there any link between the sacking of the security guards and the gangrape?
- Were the criminals hired?
- From where did the criminals gather prior information about the school? (the criminals reportedly tried to break the CCTV cameras inside the school)
