The naked body of a girl, who tried to save her father from being beaten by locals for failing to pay for a rented tractor at a village meeting, has
been found lying on railway tracks at Dhupguri in Jalpaiguri district.

After identifying the body, her father lodged an FIR against 13 persons at Dhupguri Police Station on Tuesday for “rape, murder and kidnapping” of his daughter, the police said.

Jalpaiguri superintendent of police Kunal Agarwal and Additional superintendent of police James Kujur rushed to the spot last night.

Two persons have been detained in this connection and the body has been sent for postmortem, Kujur said.

Trouble began at the ‘Salishi Sabha’ (reconciliation meeting) convened at Dhupguri on Monday night when the farmer’s request for some more time to make the payment was turned down, the police said.

The local Trinamool Congress councillor of ward no 9 and her husband were present at the meeting, the police said.

The girl came out of her house pleading with the locals not to beat her father. A person known to her took her away from the meeting and she was missing since then, the police said.

The councillor was not available for comment.

Student and youth wings of the CPI(M), SFI and DYFI, are observing a students strike and ‘Black Day’ in Dhupguri block on Wednesday demanding punishment for the culprits. They also put up road blockades on NH 31 on Wednesday.

BJP activists staged a demonstration in front of Dhupguri Police Station on Tuesday, police said.

District Trinamool Congress president Sourav Chakrabarty said the police were investigating and there was no need to give “political colour” to it.

      Now it is confirmed. West Bengal has become just like Bihar and UP two other socialist states.

            Nothing political ---only Vermins can do what has been done to the girl--- every single one of them should be caught and hanged. A country of 125 crore do not require them as citizens. The question that begs an answer is IS THERE A GOVERNMENT IN WEST BENGAL ?

                Simply disgusting. West Bengal under Mamata is no better. A leader who only spreads hatred. You do not need to give political color to this barbaric act. This heinous act is highly deplorable.

                  Foul mouthed Mamata speak up now. You have been bitterly criticizing BJP govt. at every opportunity for last several months. What do you have to say now about law and order situation in your state?
