A most horrific story of sexual violence has come out from Kerala’s Thrissur district after a woman, accompanied by her husband, recounted how she was gangraped by four men and later subjected to acute mental harassment by the police authorities.

The incident came to light after popular Malayalam dubbing artist Bhagya Lakshmi narrated the woman’s ordeal in a Facebook post. The survivor, in her 30s, named her rapists at a press conference and said one of the men was CPM municipal councillor Jayanthan. The accused, who were friends of the woman’s husband, lied to her saying her husband was hospitalised following an accident. They took her to a secluded spot and took turns raping her. But the grief did not end there. The woman said the police officers harassed her by asking uncomfortable and scrutinising questions, even to the point of asking her ‘which of the rapists gave her the most pleasure.’

Amid sobs, the woman, who covered her face, said the police called her repeatedly to the police station every day parading her in front of everyone. Days after filing a police complaint, the woman alleged she was forced to withdraw it under pressure from the accused and the police.

“They threatened to kill my children if I spoke out the truth. When the magistrate asked me if there was any pressure on me, I cried,” the woman said at the press meet. She said the then investigating officer pressured her to go for a compromise with the accused. “I was taught the forged version of statement at the police station,” she said.

According to reports, Jayanthan called the allegations ‘fabricated’ and full of lies. He said there were pending disputes with the woman’s husband over a financial deal. The ruling CPM, on its part, has promised to look into the matter and take necessary action.

            In medieval times to teach lesson to the opponents their women folks were molested and raped by the invaders from seventh to seventeenth centuries during the genocides of HINDUS and Hindustan . The same thing continues in the GODS own country due to middle east influence .CPM is one of the most our dated and self centered part, corrupt party and have never done any thing good for public . Look at West Bengal completely molested and destro after the three decades of CPM misrule ? It is some time disgusting to watch policemen doing fixing for the high and mighty

                  Treacherous conspiracy at play to dilute the essence of the story by juxtaposing the denial of all powerful CPM member accused's version at the end of the report. The I E site should do a little introspection to weed out the treacherous conspirator wolf in the garb of mediaperson sheep with obvious shade of red in the I E ship.

                      Current law and justice are failed system under the hands of Indian. Our sister , mothers and women require an "ANNIYAN" kind of law and justice.

                            If the police officer was a Muslim, definitely there was a chance to poke their nose into it.

                              Need to have special cells to receive complaining victims and to register cases against the accused in rape incidents. The MS Pigs of the police force must be dismissed or the government must make the officer concerned work without ry for atleast ten years to compensate the victim for the question he asked to her and other sufferings to her at the Police Station.

                                  We dont need a dubbing artist to create such stuffs in facebook regarding what comments any policemen ped . Yes if the policemen ped any such stray comment it is bad , but such dramatic exposure of that in facebook is not necessry . And a rape is a rape we should not connect any political party to it

                                    rape is a heinous crime . Rapists should be punished . But police men must have interrogated hard the victim woman . The feminist activists are making a big story of it . What do we care internally what the policemen asked the women as long as they did do no harm . Any spoken sentence can be twisted and made a big noise about . Is in not a big vulgare for the activist to make such noise in facebook

                                      Cops referred in the article MUST BE PUNISHED more severly than the rapists.

                                            Had this happened in any BJP ruled state, all pseudo retartds (seculars, liberals, intellectuals ) would have created a big circus targeting Modi. lt;br/gt;since this has happened in secular/liberal/intelligent state of Kerala ruled by CPI(M) now Brinda karat will go hiding. no body will talk about it
