Rape victim seeks permission to end life in West Bengal

Kolkata

rape-victimIn a rare plea a 17-year-old girl in West Bengal’s East Midnapore has asked the district authorities to allow her to kill herself as she has become pregnant after allegedly being raped by a man on the promise of marriage, police said on Saturday.

“We got intimation from District Magistrate’s public grievance cell that a girl has sought permission to kill herself after being raped by a man of same village on the promise of marriage,” Sutahata Police Station’s Officer-in-charge Jaleswar Tewary told media.

She felt that it would be difficult for her to stay alive as an unwed mother, Tewary added.

Victim’s mother alleged that while the accused was absconding, the accused’s parents, who had earlier agreed to their marriage, were opposing the proposal now.

“A case was registered and accused’s father has been arrested,” the police officer said.

Earlier in the day, a West Bengal Human Rights Commission team also visited the victim’s home at Sutahata and spoke to her and her family.
