- Memorandum -

January 23, 2012
Ms. Mamta Sharma
Chairperson
National Commission for Women
4, Deen Dayal Upadhayaya Marg,
New Delhi-110 002
Fax +91-11-23236154


Madam,

We are writing to you with deep distress about the plight of tribal women, especially those from the North Eastern States who are living and working in National Capital Region and Delhi. Thousands of educated girls from North East India, who had come to work in Call Centres and IT sectors in these cities, are facing racial discrimination and sexual assault. They live in small groups, and are often alone, which becomes a soft target for harassment in their residence and workplace. The North East Support Centre & Helpline was founded in New Delhi six years ago by concerned groups to assist such girls who are in distress and in danger of physical and psychological harm.

We seek your urgent attention on the recent shocking incident of a Gurgaon based Spa Centre employee, a 20-years-old girl, Ms. Sonia (name changed) from District Churachandpur, Manipur, who is a member of Christian community. She was offered lift by an unknown person from Gurgaon, pretext to drop her at Mahilapalpur at around 8.45 PM on January 18, 2012. Instead of taking her to Mahipalpur road, she was taken forcefully toward as isolated area in Dwarka sector 20 and raped her in the vehicle. The culprit attempted to kill her after rape. This is not the first incident nor will be last when such incidents are continuously ignored and left without proper investigation.

Considering this case and the similar incidents happened at Daula Kuan in 2005 and 2010 and Murnika in 2009 and the unprecedented racial/gender-based violence meted to the people of North East India living in Delhi, we the delegation and the North East Support Centre & Helpline sees the need that serious and concrete steps should be taken up by the law enforcing agencies. Therefore, we the undersigned and the North East Support Centre & Helpline seek help from your office to ensure the following demands:

1. Dwarka Sector 23 Police officials claimed that they have recovered bank ATM card belong to the rapist from the spot. They have also claimed that they have identified the culprit within two hours of the case was reported. This message was communicated to fact finding team of North East Support Centre & Helpline. It is five days passed that the law enforcing agency has failed to nab the culprit in spite of the fact that they have identified the culprit.

2. We, the delegation and the North East Support Centre & Helpline which has been helping the victims of sexual violence and racial discrimination from North East India, seriously doubt over the inability of the Delhi police to nab the culprit till today.

3. The Spa centre at Gurgaon where Ms Sonia was working must be booked for failing to follow 9 point safety guidelines provided by the Delhi Police.

4. Ms Sonia belongs to a tribal community of Mizoram and therefore, the culprits should be booked under suitable sections of IPC and SC/ST Atrocity Prevention Act 1995.

5. The victim, Ms Sonia should be compensated as per SC/ST Atrocity Prevention Act or any other prevailing law that cover this nature of crime.

6. Numbers of FIR are registered in various Police stations in Delhi and NCR and they are not taken up to give justice victims of sexual violence and racial discrimination from North East India. We, the delegation and the North East Support Centre & Helpline request your office to take up with the Delhi and the NCR police to produce a white paper on how the cases are taken up.

North East Support Centre & Helpline (www.nehelpline.net) is a joint initiative of various human rights activists, social workers, students, journalists and lawyers seeking to prevent harassment and abuses meted out to North East People and tribal communities of other states.
