PM Modi Meets Women Alleging Sexual Assault by Sheikh Shahjahan in Sandeshkhali

Prime Minister Narendra Modi today met with women from Sandeshkhali who have accused Sheikh Shahjahan, a suspended Trinamool Congress (TMC) leader, of sexual assault. This meeting occurred following a public rally at Barasat in the North 24 Parganas district, where Sandeshkhali is located. Sources indicate that the women expressed their ordeal to PM Modi, who listened to them with empathy.

“Prime Minister Narendra Modi met with female victims from Sandeshkhali. They shared their experiences, and PM patiently listened to them, offering support akin to a father figure. The victims were deeply emotional, finding solace in PM Modi’s understanding,” stated BJP sources.

Sandeshkhali has been embroiled in unrest since multiple women came forward with allegations of sexual assault against Sheikh Shahjahan and his associates.

Earlier today, PM Modi criticized the TMC government for allegedly shielding the accused in the Sandeshkhali case, describing it as a “matter of shame.” Addressing a women’s rally in Barasat, PM Modi reiterated BJP’s commitment to women’s empowerment and safety.

“Under TMC’s governance, the women of this region have suffered. The incidents in Sandeshkhali are deeply shameful, yet the TMC government seems indifferent to your plight. TMC prioritizes safeguarding perpetrators over addressing the concerns of the victims. Both the High Court and the Supreme Court have condemned their actions. TMC leaders have inflicted atrocities upon women from marginalized communities. The TMC government trusts its leaders more than it trusts the women of Bengal,” remarked the Prime Minister.

Meanwhile, Shahjahan was apprehended by the West Bengal Police on February 29 after evading authorities for over 50 days. Following his arrest, the TMC suspended Shahjahan from the party for six years.

“Rajasthan Woman Shot, Axed by Alleged Rapist; Two Accomplices Arrested”

A horrific incident unfolded in Rajasthan’s Kotputli-Behror district as a rape survivor and her brother were brutally attacked by the man who allegedly assaulted her, along with two accomplices. The survivor, riding home with her brother, fell victim to a spine-chilling assault, including gunshots, just 20 meters away from a local police station in Pragpura village.

The assailants, armed with an axe-like weapon, inflicted severe injuries on the woman and her brother before fleeing the scene. The survivor, enduring wounds to her head, legs, hands, and shoulders, is currently hospitalized in Jaipur for treatment.

Authorities swiftly acted, apprehending Mahipal Gurjar and Rahul Gurjar, the alleged accomplices, following the heinous attack. However, a disturbing turn in the narrative emerged when the main accused, Rajendra Yadav, was discovered at Jaipur’s SMS Hospital, critically injured. It remains unclear whether Yadav’s injuries resulted from an accident or a suicide attempt, with reports indicating the loss of one of his legs, possibly from encountering a train.

The ordeal traces back to June 2023 when the 24-year-old survivor lodged a complaint against Yadav, leading to his arrest and subsequent loss of employment. Despite being released on bail, Yadav resorted to threats, pressuring the survivor to retract her allegations. The recent assault, as indicated by the FIR, appears to be a vindictive act in response to her refusal.

While Mahipal and Rahul are in custody, Yadav remains at large, evading authorities. The police have registered an FIR against the accused under sections 307 (attempt to murder), 323 (voluntarily causing hurt), and 506 (criminal intimidation) of the Indian Penal Code, alongside provisions of the Arms Act.

Providing security cover to half of our population, how logical

It is has been always said that women constitute half of our population and the need to have stringer norms for protection of this half of our population has to be in place. Very true, I don’t think anyone would be having a different opinion. But I have a little deviation with what generally is said about the women safety and protection of her rights. Lion and order is a subject matter to which each of us is concerned deeply. With

the rise in the per capital income, change in lifestyle, reduction in ‘inactive’ hours of night due to call centers etc has actually changed the situation to a lot in comparison to what it used to be about two decades back. So, the nature of crime and the criminals has also varied with the times changing. While in the ancient times the things stolen could be the jewellery in most of the cases, now it could be a mobile or a gold chain. Now coming back to the point, since the women constitute half of the population, is it an intelligent thought to plan specifically for their security? No, certainly not. Instead we have to, and we are on the way, frame rules to punish the offenders in case of specific crime in a way that the rule itself works as a deterrent. Countries where the rules provide for ‘an eye for eye’ are not the one which has zero record of crime. So what more horrific can be more that ‘an eye for eye’? The point here for discussion is that why we are concentrating on the women security only? What about the other 50% of the population, i.e., the men? Most of the men are still not rapists and murderers, are doing white collar jobs and are busy in their professional world. Most of them are not even concerned of that the colleague with whom they are working for years is man or a woman. So why do we concentrate on women security alone? By doing this we are practicing under-utilisation of our resources. Instead of stressing the need for women security bowing to the pressure of political forces, we have to ensure that every citizen is equally and sufficiently protected. Men, doing good jobs are equally prone to most of the crimes. In fact, women given more power by acts, these men are more prone to being framed in a false case of rape or molestation. We are a civilised society and cannot keep changing our priorities. Security, no doubt is an important issues, but not of women alone.

We have to increase vigil around schools to protect children. We have to change our security culture by providing presence of near to equal police force on roads round the clock. This would enhance the security not only for women but for each and every citizen of this great country. Any need to increase the number of cops has to be supported by the budget. Ultimately it is people’s money for the people. The crimes specific to women: such as rape, molestation, domestic violence etc.,

need to be addressed by more systematic way of enquiry. With corruption residing deep into the roots of our system, most of the cases are presented weak in the courts due to lapses in the enquiry or non-submission of evidence before the court. Procedures should be more specific for providing these details. The enquiries should not be discretionary but on the basis of a vast questionnaire to be answered by the investigating officer. This, I believe would help in removing the anomalies of the legal system. However, a serious thought has to be given to the security of the other half population, the men, who are the prime source of bread and butter for the family, equally prone to crime in this fast expanding materialistic world.

We have to use our resources as a blanket cover for all and not specific for any particular section of the society.
