Stating it was “deeply disturbed,” the Supreme Court on Friday took suo motu cognisance of an alleged gangrape of a girl in West Bengal on orders of a kangaroo court. A bench led by Chief Justice P Sathasivam directed the district judge of Birbhum to inquire into the alleged incident and submit a preliminary report by Monday. The court will take up the matter next on January 28.
The woman was allegedly gangraped at Labhpur in Birbhum district by the 13 persons on Tuesday night after the panchayat head gave orders for the rape since she was in love with a man from another community.
Her family filed a complaint with the Labhpur police station that the incident happened following a meeting by her community leaders who decided to mete out the ‘punishment’ for her ‘crime’ of being in love with someone outside her community.
