Gang-rape victim faces taunts at college, complains to NCSC
Faced by taunts and harassment at her college, a 17-year-old Dalit gang-rape victim has alleged that she continues to be a victim of humiliation and apathy despite a year since she was raped by four men
In a complaint to the Zonal Director of National Commission for Scheduled Caste (NCSC), the girl has alleged that she was being harassed and humiliated by a group of boys of upper caste at the local government college where she was pursuing BA first year.
The victim said she hasn't been attending college for past three weeks as the boys passed sarcastic taunts at her.
The girl also accused the district administration of being apathetic to her plight, claiming she was refused being given treatment at a private hospital whereas the government hospitals did not have the necessary medicines.
"On one side the victims of gang rape in Delhi were provided treatment abroad but here I am being denied even the local treatment in private nursing home," she has alleged.
The girl was gang-raped on September 9, 2012 by four men in Dabra village. A fast track court had announced life sentence to the four accused in May, 2013.
The girl along with her family had shifted to Hisar from Dabra village for safety reasons. Her counsel, said here today, that "her another case is still pending in special court where she has deposed that some of the rapists have not been punished."
The victim said that "the Haryana Government had promised to provide government job to one person in our family, free treatment to me and facility of free education but none of these has been fulfilled so far."
NCSC's Zonal Director confirmed the receipt of the girl's complaint and said that the NCSC (Zonal office Chandigarh) would take up the issue with the district administration, following which the matter will be reported to the NCSC headquarter in New Delhi.
