BJP’s fact-finding team visits Hanskhali

Kolkata, April 15 : A four-member fact-finding committee of BJP, all women, on Friday left this city on way to Hanskhali in West Bengal’s Nadia district to call on the bereaved family members of the 14-year-old girl, who was gang-raped and murdered in which a TMC leader’s son was arrested as one of the prime accused. Before going by road at Hanskhali this morning, one of the members, Rekha Verma, MP from Uttar Pradesh, while demanding the imposition of President rule in West Bengal, and alleged the situation was alarming in the state with an increasing number of political murders, attacks on the opposition parties by the ruling TMC and incidents of rapes, violence and killings of the women. The fact-finding team, comprising Verma, MLA from Tamil Nadu and BJP’s women win national leader Bonoti Srinivasan, Khusbu Sundar and Malda’s party MLA Shree Rupa Mitra Chowdhury, is expected to meet the members of the bereaved family members and local people regarding the incident and report their findings to national president JP Nadda in New Delhi. Verma alleged that crimes of all types, especially offences against women were increasing day by day in a state where the chief minister is a woman. She said incidents of crimes meant the administration and its police have failed to ensure the safety and security of the common people at large. Verma also reiterated that Mamata Banerjee’s comment on the Hanskhali gang rape and murder was very low and this would only encourage the offenders to commit more crimes ” The chief minister’s remark that it was a love affair is shameful and she should apologise to the victim’s family,” Verma demanded. Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee’s provoked outrage as she appeared to dismiss the matter as a “love affair,” Verma maintained. The minor girl returned home late at night from the birthday party hosted by the TMC leader’s son on April 4 and died the next day apparently due to excessive bleeding. She was cremated in the evening without a death certificate. On the following day, the girl’s family lodged a police complaint against the TMC leader’s son, alleging rape. Residents and the girl’s family told police she was forced to drink alcohol before she was allegedly raped. The Calcutta high court on Tuesday handed over the probe into the matter to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI). PC SJC ARN
