North Dinajpur Superintendent of Police S W Reza said that the two — Mukul Alam (28) and Md Majid (29) — bore striking resemblance to those caught on the CCTV camera at the Convent of Jesus and Mary school on March 14, one of them having 75 per cent similarity.

The two, both residents of Bangladesh’s Thakurganj district, were picked up by the police from Bhatol village in Raiganj police station area, the SP said, adding CID officers were interrogating them.

    If RSS are not Chaddis only , then they should immediately protest openly in media , stage dharna like AAPians against all big shots and in media and file defamation cases for blaming it for the nun rape.

    Both are muslims. It is the truth. There is 'Thakurgao' district in Bangladesh near Dinajpur.

    क्या तब भी इतना शोर मचता यदि पीड़िता इसाई समाज से न होती ? नहीं ! … क्योंकि तब वह आम अपराध होता अब ख़ास तबके के ख़िलाफ है। यानि अपराध के स्तर का आकलन 'जाती-मज़हब-तबके' से होता है ? … तो यह भी एक बलात्कार है। .. उस तबके के साथ जो बहुसंख्यक होते हुए भी सबसे शांतिप्रिय है। ‪#‎Mehu‬

    Why are illegal Bangladeshis a;;owed to float so freely in India ? What about DNA test for 100% confirmation instead of baking in speculation ?

    This is height of irresponsible media behaviour & campaign. From day one, these juvenile journalists (print & electronic) went overboard as usual without pausing & thinking - responsible media will never work with hidden agenda (here somehow defame the MODI government & make Modi uncomfortable !!). This is something his political opponents do but not MEDIA... In Timenow the screamer was seeking the blood of Modi for mangalore church attack - the case got cracked wherein the miscreant was one ex-exployee of church. They ran a campaign on VVIP & misuse of police (but the screamers helped the church with 200 chowkidars from Delhi Police). Its pathetic to see Policemen sitting outside church in a chair with a bottle of water & Punjab Kesari newspaper !!! The fanatics of Christianity are quite happy with the arrangement (otherwise hiring a security agency will cost them Rs. 40,000 per month) !! 70 yr lady raped - it was disgusting to hear this again & again - give 72 hours to police to see what happened - then react you juveniles... Will the church fanatics take on islamic fanatics because the rapists are muslims ??? Or here again, Modi is answerable for MUSLIMS too ??? When will our MEDIA GROW UP ???
