Woman gang-raped, paraded naked and killed in Bengal, husband accuses TMC

KOLKATA: In Bengal, the wife of a CPM worker was allegedly gang-raped, paraded naked and then killed on Sunday night.

In his complaint to the police, the victim’s husband has blamed workers of the ruling Trinamool Congress (TMC), which has denied any involvement. The husband’s claim is being supported by CPM leader and former minister Chakradhar Maikap.

The victim’s body was found hanging from a tree on Sunday night at Sunia village in East Midnapore district. The CPM believes she was attacked after she failed to pay a 12-lakh fine demanded by local Trinamool affiliates because her husband was a CPM worker who fled their village after the CPM was decimated in the 2011 state election that was swept by the Trinamool.

In July, Tapas Pal, a law-maker from the Trinamool Congress, retracted his remarks and apologised after being caught on camera warning that he would have Left workers killed and their female relatives raped. However, Pal was not penalised by his party. The Calcutta High Court is now deciding whether a police case should be filed against them.
