Police shielding culprits who attempted to rape AAP leader in Bihar

By on July 2, 2014

Aam Aadmi Party strongly condemns the role of Bihar Police in shielding the culprits who attempted to rape the party’s candidate from Buxar Lok Sabha constituency, Dr Shweta Pathak. The incident reflects the deteriorating law and order situation in the state, where the hoodlums who attempted to rape a 33 year-old medical doctor last week are still at large.

What can be more shameful than the role played by the state police in the entire matter ? The police instead of nabbing the culprits who tried to commit a heinous crime in broad daylight, brutally beat up Dr Pathak in the police station.

Dr Pathak, who had not even recovered from the trauma of attempted rape against her, went through hell again when the police in complete connivance with the relatives of the accused, beat her up, causing severe injuries in her neck, arms and legs.

Photographs posted on social media by the local people and friends of Dr Pathak show the extent of police brutality on a woman victim, who was demanding justice.

The AAP demands that all the police officials involved in this shameful incident should be immediately suspended and a judicial inquiry be ordered on how the police handled the entire matter.

The AAP leaders will be visiting Bihar to meet Dr Pathak and the party will submit a memorandum to the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC), seeking an independent inquiry into the entire matter.
