1st Anniv. of the #Delhi Gang #Rape/ #Murder Marked By Another in #Assam
On Nov 25, in Lakhimpur, Assam, a young women was gang-raped and brutally killed in a manner that evokes the horrific memories of the Delhi rape and murder.
At 1 p.m. she boarded a tempo to go collect her 6-year-old girl from school. In broad daylight, four men inside the tempo gang-raped her, beat her up with a metal rod or some such object, gouged her eyes out, and threw her out of the vehicle just 50 meters from the police station. She was taken to the hospital, where she died of her injuries.
No arrests have been made so far, even protests gather momentum and women’s groups block the National Highways.
