Imphal, February 14, 2013:
Asian Centre for Human Rights (ACHR) today called upon Gurgaon Police to arrest the culprits who attempted to rape a housewife hailing from Kanchanpur in North District of Tripura on February 12. The victim and her husband have been living in a rented house belonging to one Virendra Gujjar S/o Natthu Ram Gujjar at Tigra Village under Gurgaon district of Haryana.
According to a statement issued by the ACHR, in the evening of Feb 12, Gujjar, accompanied by two youths (name not known) went to the residence of his tenant to collect the house rent.
The couple were having dinner at that time and they left after receiving the rent.
However, after sometime, these two youths went back to the residence of the tenant and repeatedly knocked at the door.
When the couple did not respond, the youths started banging the door.
No sooner the husband opened the door the two youth forced their entry into the house and rebuked the husband and his wife in filthy language, the ACHR statement said.
They demanded that the husband let them take his wife and threatened him to kill him otherwise.
The two youths assaulted both husband and wife, molested and tore off the clothes worn by the wife as they attempted to rape her.
Somehow the couple managed to escape and took shelter at a friend's place which is about seven kilometres away from the place, it added.
As the matter was brought to the attention of Joint Commissioner of Delhi Police Robin Hibu and Deputy Commissioner of Gurgaon, Ms Nazneen Bhasin, the Sadar Police Station of Gurgaon Thursday night registered an FIR No.111/2014 under Sections 376, 511, 452, 506 and 34 of the Indian Penal Code against the accused.
The Gurgaon Police is yet to arrest the accused.
"The Gurgaon Police must invoke the Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes (Prevention of Atrocities) Act and the culprits must be brought to justice immediately, if such attacks on the North Easterners are to be effectively combated," said a statement issued by Suhas Chakma, Director, Asian Centre for Human Rights.
